Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre
Council is in the process of constructing a professional-standard exhibition space adjoining the Moruya Library. This new facility will have 100 square metres of exhibition space and will be a major platform for local artists and touring shows.
The new spaces will feature videoconferencing facilities, sound-rated moveable walls for flexible use of the floor space, temperature control to meet professional standards for exhibitions, kitchen facilities and additional parking.
Council received both grant funding and donations to make this project possible. A generous donation was received from Basil Sellers AM who is patron to Council's Basil Sellers Art Prize and Little Sellers Art Prize. Basil Sellers has a passionate commitment to the perpetual growth of the community’s perception and understanding of and engagement in art. The exhibition centre will be named after Basil Sellers AM for his significant contribution to the arts in Eurobodalla.
