ACU Brisbane Gallery

The Australian Catholic University gallery is situated in the Sheehan building (225.G) of the ACU campus, 1100 Nudgee Road, Banyo in Brisbane’s north eastern suburbs.

The Gallery works to promote dialogue on religious, equity and social justice issues through the visual arts. Working in partnership with schools, community groups, churches, art galleries and industry leaders, the Gallery strives to present a variety of engaging, thought-provoking and high-quality cultural and visual art exhibitions.

The gallery primarily exhibits student artworks and the work of ACU-affiliated entities such as Prison Fellowship QLD, the Cathedral of St Stephen Art Group, and the Visionaries Christian art group, on an annual basis. The gallery also stages solo exhibitions for current and former students and has a rotating collection of alumni artworks.

Entry to all exhibitions is free of charge and the gallery has wheelchair access.

As well as serving as a cultural focal point within the University and wider community, the Gallery is also an important resource for students of ACU’s National School of Arts and Humanities.

The Gallery operates an intern program, enabling undergraduate and postgraduate students to develop practical experience in undertaking curatorial and collection work and hosts the end-of year graduate exhibition and an annual show in Orientation Week, offering students an important opportunity to showcase their work at professional industry standards.

The Gallery is a member of the Museums and Galleries Queensland.

The Australian Catholic University's Gallery in Brisbane is located on the Brisbane Campus, on the ground level of the Peter W Sheehan Building - Banyo.
