Georges River Council places a high value on community and cultural facilities where people can come together and enjoy a range of interests, activities and cultural events. Council strives to establish and maintain strong cultural networks and partnerships that support the delivery of arts and cultural programs for the community, which is made possible through Council’s various exhibition and museum spaces.

Hurstville Museum and Gallery

Hurstville Museum and Gallery hosts a regularly changing program of social history, photography, science and art exhibitions. It houses a permanent exhibition, St George Stories: people - places - community, which traces the history of the St George region from its earliest people through to the 21st Century.

Hurstville Museum and Gallery also presents a number of exhibitions per year, including travelling exhibitions and locally created content.

The Dragon’s Lair Gallery displays artworks and materials from local artists, established artists, and community groups. The gallery changes once a month from February to December.

Hurstville Museum and Gallery is also dedicated to preserving the unique history of the Hurstville and wider St George region through our permanent collection of objects and artefacts. If you would like to donate an object, please contact Council on mail@georgesriver.nsw.gov.au

Kogarah Library and Cultural Centre

The Kogarah Community Art Space Program runs throughout the year and hosts exhibitions by local artists, art societies, new and emerging artists and community groups. It also hosts national touring exhibitions, the Kogarah Art Prize, local history exhibits and special exhibitions celebrating our community.

The main exhibition space is located in the large foyer area of Kogarah Library which is also used for many library programs and events. There are two smaller exhibition spaces also available in the Library.

A new exhibition is installed every few weeks, with the opportunity for new and established local artists to get involved. Exhibitions in the space are selected to reflect the dynamic and innovative diversity that exists in the Georges River local government area. The space is available free of charge to successful applicants and is most suited to hanging works for general viewing. Video art may be shown, and there are locked cabinets for displaying ceramics, jewellery or small artworks or collections.

For further information, please call 9330 9578 or email libraryevents@georgesriver.nsw.gov.au
