Museums and Galleries

Council places a high priority on the development of the arts and creation of cultural facilities. Through its creative program and facilities, Georges River Council endeavors to ensure the area’s distinctiveness, diversity and sense of identity is valued, promoted and celebrated. 
 
Georges River Council hosts the following cultural spaces to enable this vision to be achieved:
 
Hurstville Museum and Gallery

Hurstville NSW 2220
Tuesday to Saturday: 10.00am - 4.00pm
Sunday: 2.00pm - 5.00pm
 
Hurstville Museum and Gallery hosts a regularly changing program of social history, photography, science and art exhibitions.

Its permanent exhibition, St George Stories: People - Places - Community traces the history of the St George region from its earliest people through to the 21st century. The main gallery features three to four exhibitions per year, including travelling exhibitions and locally created content.
 
The Dragon’s Lair Gallery, a dedicated space available for hire, displays artworks and materials from local artists, established artists and community groups. The gallery changes once a month between February and December.

The 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.

The Kogarah Library and Cultural Centre's Community Art Space Program presents exhibitions by local artists, art societies, new and emerging artists and community groups throughout the year. The exhibition space 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 additional smaller exhibition spaces also available within the Library.
 
A new exhibition is installed every few weeks providing the opportunity for new and established local artists to display their works in a professional gallery space. Exhibitions 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.
