We are so glad the judges of the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman prizes have made it possible for us to feature this amazing work at Tiliqua Tiliqua.
Featuring work from four of our favourite artists — Jennifer Mullen, Louise Beck, Dilara Niriella and Nectarios Livisianos — this is our very own Salon des Refusés. Unfortunately we can’t offer any of them a big prize, but we can offer you some gorgeous art to look at, or even own.
All the details and a preview of the paintings are here.
Join us for drinks with the artists from 6–8 pm Tuesday June 6.
Gallery open 12–6pm Th-Sa & 12–4pm Su till June 19
This is an exhibition to bring some unadulterated joy to your life!
Dilara explores the images that defined her childhood (and probably yours) in this series of bright, nostalgic paintings. From jelly beans to tiny teddies, this is a delicious mouthful of a show.
Join Dilara (and us) for a drink at the opening Thursday 25 May from 6pm.
GALLERY OPENING HOURS: 12–6PM THURSDAY–TUESDAY, 25–30 MAY 2023
We are so excited to bring you our inaugural annual group show — CYAN.
Featuring many of the artists who have made our first year in the gallery so enjoyable, this exhibition is a celebration of the colour blue. And it truly is a celebration! The artists have responded to the theme with playful, joyful and moving artworks across an impressive range of mediums. All at a convenient size and price too.
Please come and help us mark the first anniversary of our first show in the Tiliqua Tiliqua gallery. Because the only people as important to us as the artists who have contributed, is fantastic art-loving folk who have supported us and joined us on our journey. See you at the party on Saturday 20 April!
(Or drop by anytime the gallery is open, we can probably rustle up a drink…)
GALLERY OPENING HOURS: 12–6PM THURSDAY–SUNDAY 20–30 APRIL 2023
While we are preparing for our next big exhibition (Cyan—it’s going to be a stunner!) we have put together a collection from our stockroom for you to enjoy (and maybe take home with you).
Drop in, we’d love to see you!

Another show has closed, but with a fine finish. Thank you to all the people who braved the terrible weather to come and celebrate with us on Saturday. And thank you to the art lovers who made it such a good day for Nectarios, so many red dots!
Stay tuned for news of our next big show, opening April 20. In the meantime, the gallery will be open limited hours with a display of recent works from gallery regulars.
See you all soon!
Another combination of two very different artists to make the gallery sing!
Nectarios Livisianos is a painter exploring collage, paint and recycled canvases to make a series celebrating colour and life.
Felix Oppen is a photographer fascinated by entropy, chaos and the small things that catch our eye and make us think.
So join us at Tiliqua Tiliqua this week for some fabulous art—drop by on Saturday after four and make that fabulous art, food and drink!

Please join us for our second glorious show helping celebrate World Pride.
Like the flag we fly for World Pride, the art-making world is a spectrum of approaches, beliefs and techniques. Amy Sargeant and Nicholas are both queer artists exploring what this means in today’s Australia. But their very different approaches and choice of media makes this exhibition an exploration of opposites and oppositions.

We are excited to announce the first Tiliqua Tiliqua Annual Exhibition!
The theme for 2023 is the colour Cyan. Artworks can be in any physical medium as long as they are smaller than 40 x 40 x 40 cm.
Submissions are now open. Contact us to discuss your participation.
Artworks should be small to medium in size — no larger than 40 x 40 cm (including frame) for 2D pieces or 40 x 40 x 40 cm for 3D pieces.
We may be driving south rather than flying north, but the feeling is the same!
Thank you everyone for helping us through this exciting start to our new lives in our new space. It has been challenging and energising and tiring and fun. We especially want to thank all our artist friends, new and old, who have supported us so generously with their art, their time and their much-appreciated advice.
The gallery will reopen in February. So watch this space to hear about the incredible line-up of shows we have coming for 2023.
Stay safe, enjoy your festivities, and remember! there is no such thing as too much good art in your life.
PS This gem of a painting, ‘Flying North’ by Renay Smith, is still available at our gallery till we close our doors at 6pm Sunday 18 December, or contact us and we will put you in touch with Renay.
