Current Exhibition

Exhibiting in Back to Back Gallery

The cost of an exhibition is $500 (plus a returnable damage deposit of $200) and there is no commission on sales. The artists are

responsible for the reception, printing invitations and gallery sitting (which includes managing sales from the gallery shop).

Back to Back Galleries is primarily a ceramic gallery, meaning that priority will be given to exhibitions that have a ceramic component. However, exhibitions without ceramics will be considered and where possible we will seek to identify one or more ceramic artist to partner with the exhibition.

The front gallery with 40 square metres of floor space is a well‐lit open space with a vaulted ceiling and large viewing windows fronting the street. It is available to rent for exhibitions on a three‐week rotation. The gallery officers and gallery sub-committee will assess exhibition submissions and determine the annual exhibition calendar. Because of our ongoing commitment to ceramic art in the Newcastle and Hunter region, submissions will be selected based on the following criteria.


1. Priority will be given to members of NSP Inc. and submissions that include work in clay.

2. A balance will be sought between established and emerging ceramic artists.

3. A balance will be sought between new and unusual ceramic art and traditional ceramic practices.


Please contact our secretary or gallery officers if you are interested in exhibiting in Back to Back Gallery.
