This National Trust-operated public institution, established in 1978, boasts a picturesque location on Observatory Hill, above the rocks. Its purview is Australian art from the mid-19th century to the late 20th century, and its primary (though not exclusive) focus is painting and works on paper.
Highlights of the SH Ervin Gallery’s annual exhibition include the popular Salon des Refusés (painted portraits refused by the Art Gallery of NSW’s Archibald Prize), and the Portia Geach Memorial Award, showcasing contemporary portraiture by Australian women.
