The purpose-built, contemporary art gallery designed by award-winning architects Cox Rayner, is conveniently located within Mackay Regional Council’s Cultural Precinct, housing three impressive exhibition spaces, a workshop room, reading pod, gallery shop and cafe.

Exhibitions by significant international, Australian and local artists are complemented by innovative public programs for all ages. Programs include guided tours, artist talks, art markets, practical art programs & workshops for adults and children as well as professional development opportunities for local artists, teachers and students.

Artspace Mackay is also very proud of its region’s significant and ongoing investment into public art, including works which line the Pioneer River along the Bluewater Trail. Commissions have seen Mackay earn a place on the world map for contemporary public art, including installations by Fiona Foley, Donna Marcus, Brian Robinson, Craig Walsh, Jill Chism and Christopher Trotter.

Every two years, Artspace Mackay presents The Libris Awards: Australian Artists’ Book Prize a nationally renowned artists’ book competition which attracts entries from around the country. The awards have assisted in expanding and promoting the gallery’s significant collection of artists’ books.

Today, the Mackay Regional Council Art Collection is one of the most focused collections of its kind throughout the regional galleries network in Queensland. It is the third largest collection of artists’ books in Australia after the National Gallery of Australia and the State Library of Queensland.
