Auburn’s community art gallery might be tiny, but it’s worth a visit when you’re in this quiet, leafy corner of Auburn. The Peacock Gallery is made up of two small rooms that host six to seven exhibitions each year, and importantly, it is both free to visit and free for artists to exhibit there. The gallery also has a shop where you can buy handmade items from local designers and artists. For the 2016 program they looked to the Auburn Botanic Gardens (located directly opposite the gallery) for inspiration. It included Object in Space: Artists in the Garden that featured ceramics by Keiko Matsui, sculpture’s by Cameron Williams and Christopher Hodges, photography by Garry Trinh and textile arts by the Makers Circle and Berala Nick Nack Knitters. From Oct 28-Nov 27 the gallery’s new exhibit will be Indonesian Design Emerging, followed by the Auburn Arts Showcase and Arts Market in December.
