Mosman Art Gallery

In the 1880s and 1890s, as a result of the enthusiasm for painting en plein air fostered by the Barbizon and Impressionist movements in France, art colonies known as the Sydney artists’ camps flourished around the Harbour, mainly in the Mosman area. As a result, Mosman became known as “Australia’s most painted suburb”. Notable painters in this community included Julian Ashton, Tom Roberts, Arthur Streeton and John Mather. One such camp was known as Curlew Camp and was situated in Little Sirius Cove. An inscription on a rock can still be seen on the east side of the cove: Curlew 1890.” Wikipedia

With such history and providance is easy to understand why the Mosman Art Gallery plays such an important role in the Sydney art environment.

The Arthur Streeton, Mosman’s Bay work shown above is not is the gallery but does symbolise the place of art in the Mosman community.

The Mosman Gallery’s importance exemplified by the Mosman Art Prize first one by Margaret Olley in 1947.


Mosman Art Gallery’s exhibition program is derived from local, national and international sources and covers the visual arts, craft and design, including historical and contemporary themes and subjects. See what’s on for upcoming events and exhibitions.

Exhibitions are accompanied by a program of gallery talks, seminars, events, and formal lectures for general visitors, students and arts professionals.

If you would like to visit the Gallery as a group, guided tours are available.” MORE INFO
