Now in its 25th year, the Glebe Art Show returns to the Tramsheds at the end of June after a two-year COVID absence.

Opening night is Wednesday 22 June, and the Show opens to the public from Thursday 23 June through to Sunday 26 June. Opening hours are 12 noon-9 pm on weekdays, 9 am- 9 pm on Saturday, and 9 am-5 pm on Sunday. Entry is free, and all artworks are for sale.

This year we will be accepting entries from artists in the City of Sydney and Inner West Council local government areas and are pleased to welcome Inner West Council as a major sponsor with the City of Sydney.

Full details for artists are on our website, Entries will be accepted online from 1 June and close on 17 June or when our maximum capacity is reached.

We are very pleased that the Glebe Society is again sponsoring the Character of Glebe Prize of $500 for the artwork which best captures the spirit of Glebe. This year, the Glebe Family Medical Practice has joined us to sponsor the People’s Choice Prize, and Dr David Nguyen and Belle Property Glebe are with us again, sponsoring major prizes.

We always need volunteers to help out with both the hanging of artwork and staffing the actual Show. If you have the skills to help hang the artworks (or would like to learn them), or are happy to assist in the sales and chat to people as they visit the Show, then please email and let our volunteer coordinator, Dot Masters, know.

We look forward to welcoming you to what we believe will be our best ever Show. Come along to celebrate the Glebe Art Show’s return and support local artists.
