ocated at the end of the Great Ocean Road in the seaside city of Warrnambool, SCOPE Galleries exhibits contemporary artwork from regional and metropolitan Australian artists, both emerging and established in their field. Situated at 38 Kelp Street (two blocks east of the main street), SCOPE has gained a reputation for quality art and exhibitions which rotate throughout the year.

CONTEMPORARY ART IN A REGIONAL LOCATION SCOPE Galleries is at the forefront of the regional art scene, cultivating the value and understanding of contemporary art practices for audiences within a regional locale. It was established in December 2009 by the current director, Dr Liza McCosh, with the aim of fostering contemporary art in a regional location and supporting artists’ development by providing ongoing opportunity for exhibition and exposure of their artwork.

EXHIBITING SPACE AVAILABLE Although exhibiting consigned artwork, the 76 metres of hanging space that the gallery provides also allows for the hire of individual rooms to artists and curators at a very reasonable cost. The gallery is divided into six exhibiting spaces and supports painting, printmaking, photography, glass, ceramics, sculpture and jewellery in the exhibition program. Details of
