Spiral Gallery is an artist-run art gallery in Bega that supports contemporary art practice through creative exhibitions.

Spiral Gallery Co-operative Limited is a not for profit artists-run cooperative established in 1997. The Gallery caters to a broad range of artists and offers the chance to use and share a professional exhibition space as well as to connect, exchange artistic dialogue and informal mentoring.

Spiral Gallery plays a major role in the community by promoting and supporting arts practice in the Bega Valley region; offering opportunities for both established and emerging artists to exhibit and sell their work. The gallery promotes contemporary and innovative art practice through its frequently changing exhibition program.  The gallery hosts solo shows, community group shows and exhibitions by the Spiral artists themselves.

In our 25th anniversary year we have been supported by the Australian Government's Regional Arts Fund, which supports the arts in regional and remote Australia.
