This smaller Sydney gallery space never disappoints. It showcases works by the artist, whose diverse materials and techniques include painting, drawing, sculpture, mixed media and printmaking. The upstairs studio space has been preserved, so visitors can get a sense of some of Whitely's passions and influences as well as his studio set-up and practice. Exhibitions change yearly, sometimes more frequently, and are curated around the artist's major preoccupations and themes. Currently, Whiteley's love of his home and its setting in Sydney's Lavender Bay with its views across the harbour and lush maritime environment are on display. For people with an interest in art, Whitely's Studio is an absolute gem and a must.

Tucked away in a quite Surry Hills back street not far from the CBD is this remarkable gallery/studio in a old warehouse. Such a wonderful glimpse at the life of the genius that is Brett W. So good.

Small intimate gallery space on the ground floor with a changing exhibition of Brett Whiteley's work every 6 months or so. The upper lever has a small exhibition space and Whiteley's art studio. Well worth a visit or 2!

This one has been on the brides bucket list for a while, and after an overnighter in the city, we headed down to Surry Hills on Saturday morning and arrived just after opening (10am). The exhibition was displayed beautifully in Whitley’s old space, with lots of great info with each work. Upstairs in Brett’s old residence and studio is where the real gems are, with excellent studio expert Alec engaging with us and providing some wonderful insights into Brett, Wendy and the way they continue to keep this most important Australian artist relevant well done Alex, was great to meet you and you added so much to our visit, thank you). The bride also bought a stunning Whitely book from the gift shop she had been searching for; made even better it was bought from the source. We are heading to Europe next year and I was telling the bride I’m super keen to do the musicians tour of London, Denmark St, The 100 Club etc, and she said “why don’t we do more of that at home”... so this was a perfect kick start to that. Free entry and a great way to soak up some of our own history. Highly recommended!!

My wife and I love art, and attending a special exhibition in a major city frequently determines the travel choices we make. The Brett Whiteley Studio was mentioned in Lonely Planet, so we thought we'd check it out as we'd never heard of this artist. The studio is open 3 days a week currently (Fri-Sun), but it's well worth the effort to visit. We really enjoyed the art, and loved discovering a very talented artist who, unfortunately, died much too young. The staff were very helpful answering our questions about the artist, and there are some videos that you can watch which provide biographical information. Also, you can see one of Brett Whiteley's large format paintings in the Art Gallery of New South Wales too. In sum, this is a worthwhile way to spend a couple of hours for travelers who also love art and painting.
