Independent Galleries Newcastle

IGN is a membership-based group of owner-run and artist-run galleries who exhibit regularly changing exhibitions of local, national and international artists while providing a range of professional exhibitions for public viewing. All galleries are located in the local government area of Newcastle City and sell direct to the public on behalf of their exhibitors. 

Founded in 2016 by Newcastle based artist/curator and gallery owner, Ahn Wells in order to advocate, support and promote independent and artist-run galleries located in Newcastle, Australia. The aim of IGN, is to lift the profile of owner and volunteer-run Newcastle galleries to the wider community in order to ensure the long-term sustainability of these important art and cultural spaces to the local community, artists and visitors to Newcastle. Galleries join the group via a yearly membership.

Supporters of IGN are a group of government/council funded art spaces and non-for-profit organisations and selected small business owners.
