About the Gallery

The Gallery is located at Goolugatup Heathcote, 58 Duncraig Rd, Applecross. It sits above the shores of the Derbal Yerrigan, 10 minutes drive from the Perth CBD. Our exhibition program aims to show innovative, high-quality contemporary art. We usually present 14 exhibitions over a year.

Our space includes Main Gallery, Project Space, the Collections gallery showcasing the City of Melville’s recent acquisitions, and a shop featuring locally-made products. Successful applicants will be invited to exhibit in either the Main Gallery or Project Space, depending on suitability and preference.

How to Apply

Applications are by online form. The form involves a project description and linking to CV and images. All applications are assessed by a selection panel comprised of staff and external arts professionals. Spaces are limited, and selection is competitive.

Detailed information about exhibiting and applying is available below. If you have further questions, the Gallery Curator is able to discuss applications prior to submission – heathcote@melville.wa.gov.au or 9364 5666.

Advice and Selection Criteria

We are excited by applications proposing new artworks that reflect current art and ideas, or that are sensitive to Goolugatup Heathcote’s unique history and landscape.

General advice for applicants

  • Keep your writing clear and concise. Avoid waffle or jargon – simple is better.

  • Use high-quality and relevant images. Include explanatory info in your captions if required.

  • Tailor your proposal to our gallery, where relevant.

  • Your CV should be up-to-date and specific to your arts career. If you are early-career, you may want to include a bio introducing yourself.

 
Selection Criteria
  • Technical quality – is the artist’s work well made for its purpose?

  • Conceptual strength – does the project express a cohesive and coherent concept?

  • Ingenuity – is it inventive, original, or avant-garde?

  • Audience engagement – could it connect audiences to important or current ideas?

  • Suitability – is it a good fit for the gallery, does it further our program, and is it achievable in scope?
