Throughout the year we present a range of exhibitions, featuring painting, drawing, photography, illustration, multimedia, ceramics, and printmaking. You’ll find inspiration from emerging and established local, Indigenous and international artists, and we’ll always try to surprise you.
It’s inspirational to look back and remember the many astonishing installations, experiences and exhibitions the MAG&M has been privileged to host over just the past few years, and the many artists we have been able to present.
3 Nov - 3 Dec 2017
Artists have explored their own interests in land as an idea, a metaphor, a noun, a verb, a place, a possibility, a presence, a contested space and as a grand cultural presence within this region and beyond. Through art we can explore old meanings and create new ones using various forms of imagination to delve deeper into the meaning of land to us.
This dynamic exhibition aims to support and encourage creativity on the Northern Beaches and for the promotion and exposure of artists within our region. The exhibition showcases works from the wide range of artistic practice, including photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, glass and ceramics.

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner: Nettie Lodge
3 Nov - 3 Dec 2017
Inspired by the famous 1798 poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, author and illustrator Nettie Lodge has created a contemporary visual narrative in a series of 40 paintings. The words first captured the artist’s imagination at the age of 10 and this visual realization of the poem, created over the past 7 years, powerfully illustrates the epic and tragic story of the albatross and the mariner.
