Foyer exhibition spaces

These spaces are equipped with a gallery hanging system and lighting within Councils Community Facility. They are designed as community spaces for the display of art works but do not offer the business support that commercial and community galleries offer exhibitors.

At a foyer exhibition space, the exhibitor is responsible for the set-up, marketing and promotion, installation and de-installation, sales, and staffing of their exhibition. No commission is charged in the foyer exhibition spaces.

Currently Council provides three Foyer Exhibition Spaces. These are located at:

  • Berowra Community and Cultural Centre, Gully Road, Berowra
  • Cherrybrook Community and Cultural Centre, Shepherds Drive, Cherrybrook

To hire a foyer exhibition space, or to discuss availability, costs and requirements, please contact Council’s Venue Management Team on 9847 6051.

How long can my exhibition last?

Foyer exhibitions can be open for a minimum of one day and a maximum of three days over a Friday, Saturday and Sunday period. This ensures the exhibition will maximise attendances, marketing and sales opportunities while minimising ongoing exhibition costs.
