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’.
We’ve collected works from a HUGE range of talented artists including regulars Yori Price, Ro Murray, Kate Riley, Felix Oppen, Cay Barnum and Nicholas, and introducing new gallery friends Pia Larsen, Renay Smith, Jen Burns, Kathleen Mason, Graham Read, Joanna Durney Sanz, Monika Viktoria, Jennifer Mullen, Astred Hicks, Michael Comerford, Meg Humphrey, Huy Nguyen and Nettie, Geoff and Mercy Sumner.
There is beautiful art here to suit every budget, and every Christmas stocking.
All things must pass, and it is time to say goodbye to Yori’s evocative, shimmering abstract landscape paintings. (But you will see more of her work in our next show, Works of Paper, starting August 18.)
And you can still catch the exhibition this week, Thursday through to Sunday, midday to at least five. Drop by on Sunday and we may even have opened a bottle or two to bid the show goodbye.
If you have had an eye on a painting or two but can’t make it back in, don’t fret! There is a complete list of the work here. Just contact us for more information.
That turned into a slightly longer break than we’d hoped, with the intervention of the unwelcome guest COVID! But the gallery is open again, and this is a great time to come and look at Yori Price’s amazing paintings.
We did manage to sneak in a proper opening party, and it was great to see so many people coming out on a cold Sydney Sunday.
Some of you will have enjoyed seeing a small selection Yori’s paintings in our first exhibition. Now we get a chance to showcase her work! Yori trained as a printmaker at the National Art School, and brings that sensibility along with her immersion in the traditions of Japanese Shintoism and Zen Buddhism to her painting practice.
These abstract landscapes are Yori’s response to the traditions of her upbringing in Japan and her wonder at experiencing the Australian bush when she immigrated here in the early 2000s. With their thickly applied paint contrasting with delicate and calligraphic pencil markings and washes of colour, these paintings are evocative and sensual.
Join Yori for drinks in the Gallery on Sunday June 5, from 4 to 6 pm.
After all the hard work comes the party.
Our first party in our new studio.
Our first exhibition in our new gallery.
Please join us!

Come to see work from the artists who have been with us since our first days in St Peters, the artists who have joined us in Enmore, and the artists who grew up with us.

The exhibition runs until 15 May 2022. The gallery will be open 12.30-6.30pm Thursday to Sunday, other times by whim or arrangement.
We hope to see you soon, preferably with glasses in our hands.
