The best of Contemporary Art
There's something extraordinary about art. It can help us stand out or find our place. It inspires and fulfils. Art comes in many forms and represents many things.

The Griffith University is one of the finest institutions in Australia, giving its students the ultimate education and ability to innovate. It is the ninth largest education provider in Australia.

The university itself is very well-known, but what isn't well known is the Griffith University Art Gallery. This quaint space, housed at the university, is open to all.

This is the perfect place to reminisce and applaud the greatness, complexity and ingenuity of contemporary and modern art.

Griffith Artworks

The Griffith University Art Gallery manages all the artworks and collections of all the five campuses, and organises regular exhibitions for visitors.

The exhibitions are open to students, as well as the public. Each exhibition presents a themed showcase of Griffith University students' finest works, alongside pieces by professional artists.



Visiting the Gallery

The Griffith University Art Gallery is open from Tuesday to Saturday, 11am to 4pm. Entry is free, so you can visit and enjoy the beautiful creations on a budget.

The gallery promotes contemporary artworks and encourages visitors to interact with the artists, to better understand the pieces. On most days, you can obtain the help of art connoisseurs to guide you and help you understand the nuances of each artwork.

The Gallery is closed on special days and public holidays.

Events and Functions

From time to time, the Griffith University Art Gallery hosts events and competitions, which are open to university students, staff and visitors.

Special exhibitions include the university's Graduate Art Show, which is quite a renowned event on the calendar of both the university and the Australian art scene. The show attracts artists, designers and investors from all around the country – and even internationally.

This year's Graduate Art Show was officially open on 27 November, and will continue through to 31 January next year.

This is the perfect time for art fanatics to contribute to the betterment and development of budding artists by purchasing a piece from the exhibition.

Art Donations

Artwork donations are always appreciated and received gratefully by Griffith University – anyone is welcome to donate their own or acquired pieces of art.

Financial support towards the gallery's projects is also appreciated.

For art enthusiasts, investors or just anyone who wants to brighten their home or office, most artworks can be purchased. This helps artists to not only feel appreciated, but to become endowed with wings to soar. I'm sure many people bought a Van Gough back in the day to contribute to his efforts, without knowing their investment would grow tenfold.
