The University Gallery
The University Gallery is situated in a purpose built, award winning building designed in 1995 by Peter Stutchbury of Stuchbury Pape, in conjunction with EJE. One of the original aims for the gallery was to provide a best practice facility in which Graduating students of the University could exhibit their work for examination. Graduating students continue to present exhibitions of the highest standard, and today the Gallery also provides an energetic space for the presentation, promotion and discussion of artistic and cultural developments and achievements in other areas of research at the University of Newcastle. It offers a facility to enhance the learning and teaching experience of contemporary art, design and other related disciplines.
The Gallery also presents curated exhibitions and touring shows that are relevant to the wider University and Hunter community, promoting an awareness of contemporary artists, communities and disciplines, through Public Programs and mentoring sessions.
The Gallery supports the NSW Public Sector in Equal Opportunity, Equity and Diversity Standards of Practice and provides opportunities for the development of national and international networks in cultural organisations.
