2023 was an extraordinary year of growth and learning for us here at Tiliqua Tiliqua. We would like to thank all the artists and art lovers who have made it such a fun and rewarding time.
But now it is 2024. As I write this we have thirty (30!!) exhibitions booked in, so get ready for some amazing art.
We kick off on the first of February with ‘Dark Alphabet’ from long-term gallery friend, Matthew da Silva. Then we welcome guest curator Sage Blake Rivers and two provocative shows to coincide with World Pride 2024. We are also very excited to announce that February will see the first of our Life Drawing in the Gallery sessions.
Stay tuned to hear more about all these events, and the 28 other offerings we have in store. See you soon!
After our brief break we’re back with a truly enchanting exhibition.
Andrew Ensor has been exploring castles as a visual motif for more than 20 years. This, his 37th(!) solo exhibition, is a retrospective bringing these delicate and dreamlike drawings together. His pieces, softly merging pen and paint, present a romanticised, yet fragile view of the world while exploring the aesthetics of entropy.
Drop by the gallery to experience these richly coloured worlds of surreal landscapes and architectural compositions, telling intricate stories of grandeur, fragility and timelessness.
Drinks with Andrew in the gallery 2–7pm Saturday September 23
We are taking a little break to focus on our own creative work. You can still drop in to see us, and the art from the stockroom we have selected for the walls. Just note the somewhat reduced opening hours…
12–4PM TH-SU UNTIL JULY 9
Then we are back with a bang and Jennifer Burns’ witty and charming new exhibition ‘Birds on Things’.
‘First Drawer’ has to have been one of our most successful shows to date. There were crowds of happy people admiring the wonderful, colourful (and affordable) prints and collages from these two talented artists, and so many sales! If you missed out this time, I believe they will be back next year…
Thank you to Emily and Sabrina, and thank you to all of you wonderful art lovers supporting us and them.
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
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.
