These galleries are located at Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre (HRC), Ward Block 1 on the ground floor near the publically accessible Café. The galleries are open between 9am-5pm, Monday – Friday and include three gallery walls.

  • Gallery Block 1, Wall 1 – 5.8m x 2.2 m
  • Gallery Block 1, Wall 2 – 5.6m x 1.2m
  • Gallery Block 2, Wall 3 – 9m x 1.2m

 

Please Note: The HRC Galleries do not extend over one continuous length. Each wall is separated by patient access ways, doors and signage.

These galleries are dedicated to supporting the work and careers of early, mid-career and established artists. CCH Curatorial staff aim to program a minimum of 4 exhibitions per year. Each display will last approximately 8-12 weeks with the final exhibition extending into January 2021. Where possible, the gallery program will actively participate and partner with festivals and events including the Adelaide Fringe Festival, South Australia’s History Festival, South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival, and TARNANTHI.

Artists are invited to sell artworks. In the instance that an artwork is sold, CCH will receive 25% commission to support CCH’s gallery program.

Exhibition requirements

HRC Galleries are located within a publicly accessible area on Hampstead’s campus. Therefore, artwork must be appropriate for display within a health and rehabilitation facility where a healing environment is paramount and incidental viewing will occur by people of all ages and diverse cultural backgrounds.

Artworks must adhere to safety standards and should not include any dangerous protrusions or sharp edges. CCH has initiated a ‘no glass policy’ for artwork displayed at HRC. Artwork requiring framing will need to use 3.5mm or 4mm Astariglas Cast acrylic sheeting.  Some mediums may not be accepted if considered a risk for infection control or occupational health and safety. If you wish to clarify the suitability of your preferred medium, please contact CCH Curatorial Staff.

Artworks must also be suitable for installation using a picture rail system. D-rings must be attached prior to delivery, fitting the dimensions of the space.

Artists are responsible for the transportation of artworks to and from HRC. Exhibiting artists should ensure they have appropriate insurance for the display of artworks in a public space.
