Eltham Library Community Gallery

Opened in 1994, the Eltham Library Community Gallery (ELCG) is a much-loved community gallery space, that sits within the Eltham Library complex. It was designed by multi award-winning Melbourne architect, Gregory Burgess.

The Eltham Library Community Gallery is an important platform for emerging artists that provides entry into professional practice.

The gallery space offers a diverse exhibition program that showcases both traditional forms of art-making and new methods of art production, along with themes and ideas that are relevant to our times.
