The diverse landscape and unique, quirky character of the Sunshine Coast has long been a draw to artists of all media, resulting in a flourishing arts community. The Sunshine Coast Artists Co-operative was established in 1997 with a goal of promoting the arts and providing its members with a venue in which to show and sell their art. In 1998 the Landing Gallery was established and ran successfully in Lower Gibsons until December of 2016.
Despite the closure of the gallery, the desire to remain a co-operative was strong, and the artists now offer their works for show and sale in at least two major pop-up shows each year on the Sunshine Coast.
Consistency of quality and variety of media has always been of utmost importance when adding to our membership, and because we are an artist-run enterprise, we all have a stake in the functioning and operation of the shows.
We strive for personal artistic growth and we are dedicated to professionalism in presentation.
The Co-op maintains a vibrant website and social media presence as well as a subscriber online newsletter with exclusive invites and benefits to subscribers.
