Galleries, Museums and Collections

The S.H. Ervin Gallery is one of Sydney’s leading public art institutions housed in the historic National Trust Centre on Observatory Hill, The Rocks in Sydney.

The Gallery’s exhibition program is designed to explore the richness and diversity of Australian art, both historical and contemporary, and present it in new contexts. The Gallery is renowned for encouraging research and promoting artists from all periods of Australian art history. In addition, the S.H. Ervin Gallery has developed an excellent name for presenting important exhibitions and programs that recognise the valuable contribution made by Australian women artists.

The S.H. Ervin Gallery hosts up to seven exhibitions each year, including travelling exhibitions, which focus on the work of Australian artists. The Gallery presents major survey exhibitions of significant artists and also hosts popular annual shows including the Salon des Refusés: The ‘alternative’ Archibald and Wynne Prize, and the Portia Geach Memorial Award for women artists.
