The Mosman Art Gallery is one of the most highly regarded regional galleries in Australia. It is the largest visual art facility in Northern Sydney and attracts over 75,000 visitors each year. The Gallery's collection of 620 works includes many of Australia's finest artists and is valued at more than $4 million. It is home of the Mosman Art Prize (established in 1947), one of the oldest and most prestigious local government art awards in Australia. The winning works form an outstanding collection of modern and contemporary art, reflecting developments in Australian art practice over the last half a century.
Mosman has a particularly rich cultural heritage when it comes to the visual arts. The suburb has inspired generations of artists since the late 19th century, including famous impressionist Arthur Streeton and Tom Roberts, who painted many Australian masterpieces from the Mosman Artist Camps at Sirius Cove. Other world renowned artists from Mosman include Margaret Preston and Ken Done.
The Mosman Art Gallery presents an inspiring and varied program of high quality exhibitions, education activities and cultural events every year. With over 500 loyal members in the Friends Group, the Gallery is much loved by the Mosman Community and provides a key meeting place and creative hub for all.
The Balnaves Foundation has provided funds to employ a Philanthropy Manager to assist the gallery in attracting financial support, sponsorship and also encourages the local community to donate works of art to the gallery.
