What's On Now
There comes a time, every 10 years or so, that an exhibiting gallery needs to review and evolve.
The last ten years has seen Artsite´s development towards full artist representation on the strength of our continued commitment to curatorial decision making.
Significantly, Artsite is now a well recognised Sydney Art Gallery attracting visitors from all over Sydney, NSW, interstate and internationally, with media accolades including "Top Ten Coolest Sydney Galleries", and "Top Five Innerwest Galleries", amongst others.
Artsite has received NAVA Accredition, supporting best practice and dealing ethically with artists and, "as a leading arts organisation which supports best practice and deals fairly and ethically with indigenous artists and Communities in the Visual Arts industry", Artsite Galleries was invited to become a Signatory and Member of the Indigenous Art Code of Australia.
Our artists have won, and continue to be well represented in, Major Art award exhibitions around Australia and we have placed artist's work into major Australian Public Collections.
Artsite attributes these achievements to both the caliber of Artsite's exhibiting artists, and the strong curatorial approach to identifying and supporting local & Australian emerging artists.
"We are very proud of the professional achievements of our artists and the growth of Artsite to a well recognised Sydney Gallery", notes Madeleine Tuckfield-Carrano (Gallery Director/Curator), "and we are looking forward to developing new artist and client relationships moving into the new decade."
To evolve, is to change.
In reviewing the change in the visual arts market during the last decade, Artsite will be expanding our online presence by offering our outstanding Stockroom catalogue for immediate purchase in a secure environment backed by SSL and the security of the Commonwealth Bank.
All works for sale in our online Stockroom, are available to view, in person, in our physical stockroom gallery during exhibition hours, or at your convenience, by appointment, before purchase.
Changing our Hours of Exhibition enables By Appointment Convenience in support of our commitment to good client service.
2020 Exhibition Hours

On behalf of the Artists at Artsite Galleries we thank you for your ongoing support and look forward, in this new decade, to sharing the work of our artists both in our physical exhibition galleries and online in the comfort of your personal space.
We anticipate the launch of these initiatives in February to accompany our 2020 Mardi Gras Celebration exhibition.
MISPLACED AND DANGLING - Jamie Cole | Murat Urlali.
OMG - where the bloody hell is the apostrophe meant to go... and what about the comma!
Forget the exclamation mark - that says it all... and who said brackets were "de rigueur"!
"Not Tonight Josephine." - was it Napo(leon) to Joseph(ine) or Joseph(ine) "Not Tonight, Josephine." to Napo(leon).
And don´t say this was never said, or Leon and Joseph will upset the quotation marks! And what´s this about colons having followers and semicolons being joiners? Visual Euphemisms, and more Linguistic Furniture needed... (embroidery required)
For Jamie Cole, moving forward continues themes of loss and memory, Men I’ve undressed (series 2019) but taken further challenging the State of Stigma (series 2020). For Murat Urlali, moving forward is embracing Kitsch and Camp, while drawing on ancient and traditional Persian enamel technigues, connecting idealised Western imagery with spiritual symbolism from the Islamic world.
