Dedicated to exhibiting the works of Emerging Artists, the Top Gallery is an intimate exhibition space infused with heritage character.

The Top Gallery is part of Salamanca Art Centre’s subsidised Access Galleries Program and is offered to Emerging Artists who are Salamanca Arts Centre Associate Members on the acceptance of an exhibition proposal. This heavily subsidised gallery space enables Emerging Artists to exhibit, often for the first time as a solo artist, for month-long periods. 

The Top Gallery is located on Level 2, nestled beneath the Terrapin Puppet Theatre Workshop in the attic of Salamanca Arts Centre at the top of the stairs. The rough-cast, limewashed stone walls, exposed beams and wooden flooring offer a counter-point in form and texture to many types of work.
