THE KENNETH MACQUEEN ART FOYER
The Kenneth Macqueen Foyer gallery is situated in the Millmerran Library and is the venue for monthly exhibitions by local and guest artists, both nationally and internationally. The diverse selection of visual art, photography, ceramics and craft is sourced and managed by the Millmerran Arts Council and showcased to locals and visitors free of charge. Artists are invited to exhibit at no cost, with sales of works achieved directly with the artist. This initiative helps nurture the careers of artists and gives the public the opportunity to engage with contemporary art practice.
Each exhibitor has an Artist's Page with full contact details where relevant. Click below to visit each one. (Arranged in chronological order with current exhibitor first. Older exhibits can be found in the Archives.)
