The University Gallery
The University Gallery presents curated exhibitions and touring shows that facilitate an awareness of contemporary art, artists, communities and disciplines. We also support and promote local and emerging artists through our exhibition program and present research exhibitions by our postgraduate candidates at the University of Newcastle.
We value community engagement and welcome the public to engage with our many exhibition openings and public programs throughout the year. See sign up tab to your right for event updates.

Erasure is never simply a matter of making things disappear: there is always a remainder that comes about in the aftermath, some mark on the surface from which a word or image or note has been removed. Whether crossed out, written-over or rubbed away, the forsaken item has a habit of returning, like a spectre: if only in the marks that assume its place and assert its passing.
Please join us for the opening and performances Tuesday 6 August from 7:30pm.
Pianist Jacob Neale and bassist Jarrod Gibson will play Jazz in response to the artist’s work and the theme of erasure.
