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.

View the Exhibitions Program for January to June 2020.

It’s inspirational to look back at past exhibitions 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.

What's on now? 


MAG&M Art Windows

By day and night, peer thorough MAG&M's foyer and eastern windows to catch a glimpse of the current exhibition 90 Years: Treasures from the Vault. In the foyer, the first painting which instigated the collection, James R. Jackson’s ‘Middle Harbour from Manly Heights’ hangs adjacent to Joan Ross’s artwork featured above, MAG&M’s most recent acquisition.

Spot some of the key works which make up this significant community cultural asset, some familiar and some quite new. The treasured paintings, photographs and ceramics were acquired through MAG&M Society, the Theo Batten Bequest, Northern Beaches Council, the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program, private donors and from the artists. This great collection has grown to represent the work of some of Australia’s greatest artists.


90 Years: 90 Stories Instagram Project

Whilst it is disappointing that the upcoming exhibition 90 Years: Treasures from the Vault must be postponed, we want to ensure that it can still be enjoyed by all, just in a slightly different way!

This is why we have decided to launch 90 Years: 90 Stories. Each day fo the next 3 months, MAG&M will feature one artwork from the exhibition as an Instagram story.

These stories will be added as a highlight on our Instagram page, so that they can be viewed ultimately as an online catalogue. 90 Years: 90 Stories will share the selected works from MAG&M's collection, acquired over the past 90 years, providing rare insights into its history and stories.
