About the gallery
Phoenix Youth Centre’s gallery is situated in the heart of the inner west, Footscray. The 11 metre x 3 metre gallery wall also has ceiling hanging opportunities and some floor space for free standing art. The space is suitable for paintings, photography, and illustrations, small 3D work (such as sculpture) and multimedia.
Who can exhibit?
The Phoenix Gallery is free to hire to young people 12 to 25 years of age to stage solo or group exhibitions. By holding your own exhibition, you have the opportunity to build your exhibition CV and attract an audience. You can also use the opportunity to sell your work and get all of the sales as Maribyrnong Youth Services takes no commission.
It is also available to organisations collaborating with young people.

Support to exhibit for young artists
Exhibitors can be supported by Maribyrnong Youth Services in installing their exhibition and with producing promotional materials. Exhibiting artists can also apply for workshop opportunities. The workshop is for artists 12 to 25 which provides the artist or group with the opportunity to utilise the Phoenix Art Studio. In addition, we provide material support up to $250 for costs such as art materials, invitation postcards and other relevant support as needed. Assistance will be given in planning, marketing and advertising. Come and talk to the Youth Development Officer at Phoenix Youth Centre.
Other opportunities for young artists
As an artist you can also enquire about leading art workshops in the Phoenix Art Studio or other locations in Maribyrnong.
You can also participate in our visual arts program and if you are 18 – 25 years of age you can also apply to use the art studio to produce your own work.
