Exhibit at SAM in December 2016

Each year SAM goes local across December and January, spotlighting the practice of local artists with three exhibitions;

  • SAM Local. Spotlight,
  • SAM Local. VCE Art and Studio Arts and
  • SAM Local. Best of Friends.

SAM Local. Spotlight profiles the work of one artist with a solo exhibition. This initiative encourages, stimulates and promotes local and regional cultural activities as part of SAM’s annual program. It enables artists to experience working in a professional museum context. Exhibitions are programmed up to six months in advance.
