Visual artists and curators are invited to apply to hold exhibitions at the Art Galleries of Palazzo de La Salle in the heart of Valletta.

Its Art Galleries have hosted exhibitions by artists such as Harry Alden, Ġanni Bonnici, Antoine Paul Camilleri, Madeleine Gera, Catherine Cavallo, Alex Dalli, Kenneth Zammit Tabona, James Vella Clark, Anna Galea, Karen Caruana and Anna Calleja, among others.
