Anyway I visit the exhibition, called sculpture city with leading sculptures as Anne Ferguson, Paul Bacon Paul Hopmeier, and a few more. Unfortunately... More

After many years of meaning to visit the S H Ervin Gallery. There was momentary hesitation - we got the impression that folks in jeans are not always readily welcomed - but then we paid the admission fee ($7 which is minsicule really).

Just viewed the Salon De Refuse here, so good, what a lovely space. Historic building located on Observatory Hill, nice cafe too, plus parking, (if a little limited). Well worth a visit. Then onto the Sydney Observatory. Nice day out

My wife and I conducted a visit to Sydney Observatory and became aware also of the existence of this gallery which is located a short stroll from the Observatory. There is limited free parking available at the gallery. There is a lovely little cafe attached to the gallery... More

Set amongst beautiful historical buildings and huge trees is the lovely S H Ervin Gallery. I saw the russel Drysdale drawing exhibition but I will be back to also check out the Not The Way Home exhibition. Typically this gallery has a lovely intimacy with its audiences and artworks. Don't come to Sydney without a walk up the hill if... More
