Manly Art Gallery & Museum has published and printed many fascinating exhibition catalogues over the past few years, creating lasting records of our significant visual arts and social history projects.

Available online now for the first time, we bring you a suite of exhibition catalogues to read and enjoy, including those marking major group exhibitions like Ku-ring-gai pH: art & science project, North Head Project and Manly Dam Project.

Other catalogues like 24 Years in Glass, a survey exhibition marking the artistic development of two significant Northern Beaches glass artists Benjamin Edols and Kathy Elliott, are also available to view online.

Through this process, we have collaborated with some brilliant writers, graphic designers and partners like the Water Research Laboratory School of Engineering UNSW Sydney, Eramboo Artist Environment, NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service and Q Station Manly.

Watch this space as our archive grows throughout 2020 and beyond, bringing the words and images of some of our great exhibition projects into your homes.

Some of the printed versions of these catalogues are still available for sale, so please email to enquire.
