345 Art Creative Gallery is a contemporary gallery hosting regular solo and group exhibitions. Departing from the conventional notions of a gallery space, 345 AC exists at the intersection of a community art space and a modern gallery. Since opening in 2019, the gallery has developed a strong reputation for showcasing the work of established and mid-career artists, while also highlighting the work of emerging and younger practitioners.

The gallery has three exhibition spaces, two spaces on ground level and one community cafe space. Gallery 1 and 2 can be used together or separately. The Rail Hanging exhibition system in our Gallery 1 and 2 areas offer sleek, professional and almost invisible exhibition systems.

Our display areas are filled with natural light coming in from our skylights, and have adjustable gallery tracking light systems throughout the space. The Gallery is suitable for large works.
