This tiny gallery in Chippendale is the passion of artist John Ogburn. After realising the importance of art exhibits that don’t bow to commercial pressures, Ogburn created this cooperative in 1973. You can now find it as a thriving space, marked by a friendly corner door. Harrington Street Gallery has a new exhibit roughly every month, so it’s a great place to return to throughout the year.
It’s also small enough to see in 20 minutes, making it a great place to stop on your lunch break. What’s more, you’ll be able to view the works of artists who have international acclaim. If you enjoy quality Australian art and want to support local creatives, this is certainly a place to visit.
