You can even add your works to the space to see how they will look using online modelling platform SketchUp. Download the SketchUp file and create a SketchUp free account to get started.

Call for Moreland Summer Show 2021 proposals

People’s Choice Award selected by visitors of $1000 is sponsored by the Sydney Road Brunswick Association.

Internship opportunities

We are not currently accepting applications for internships.

Each year the Counihan Gallery offers an internship opportunity to satisfy course requirements for one person currently enrolled in a graduate or post graduate degree in curatorship, arts management, museum studies or equivalent, with a demonstrated commitment to the visual arts sector.

Applicants must be interested in working together with gallery staff on an agreed project while also learning the day-to-day operations of the gallery.
