Local artists are welcomed to the 2023 Glebe Art Show. There are a range of prizes in several categories, with a main Open Art Prize of $3,000 and the Character of Glebe Prize of $500 sponsored by the Glebe Society. Artists are encouraged to try their hand at capturing the character of Glebe through its built environment, landscape or people. This might take the form of a drawing, lithograph, painting or photograph. A panel of judges drawn from the Glebe Society helps to pick a winner who is presented with their prize on the opening night of the show. 

The Glebe Art Show is generously sponsored by largely local sponsors and runs with the support of both the City of Sydney and Inner West Councils.

Artists can enter the Show online from the Glebe Art Show website and upload a photo of their work for the online catalogue. The catalogue will be available before the opening of the Show, however purchasing an artwork can only take place from 6 pm on 18 October.
