The Light Well

A magnificent foyer and stairwell are to be found in ‘The Q’ – Queanbeyan Performing Arts Centre and they lead the viewers’ eye to the Light Well exhibition space. This grand exhibition space is certainly a one of a kind in the local area and the region, measuring 4m high and 20m long.
The space is beautifully lit by natural light throughout the day and complemented by halogen light at night. The opportunity to exhibit very large artworks outside of a major institution is a rare occurrence and one The Queanbeyan Council is proud to promote.
Whether the artist has large scale works that can not be accommodated in ‘The Q’ – Queanbeyan Performing Arts Centre Exhibition space, or would simply like to show larger works in a modern, state of the art cultural centre, this space is a fantastic option.
