The Gallery at Florence Arts Centre hosts regular exhibitions throughout the year and features artwork in many other locations around the building, which is part of the now disused Florence Iron Ore Mine site. This year’s GROUND 4 exhibition celebrates natural materials and pigments and will include local and national artists’ work.

Florence Arts Centre is as a hub for the arts in all forms, featuring live music, film screenings, theatre and other events as well as a year-round roster of workshops, classes, social events and community meet-ups.
