The popular annual Eltham Library Community Gallery (ELCG) exhibition program for 2023 has been announced and will soon open to the public.

The program will showcase a variety of exhibitions featuring new, emerging and local artists, who will have the opportunity to showcase their incredible work.

Mayor Ben Ramcharan said these free exhibitions are loved by the local community. “We hope audiences feel inspired by these exhibitions in the Eltham Library Community Gallery,” he said.
