2022 Glebe Art Show


The Glebe Art Show is a non-selective, non-acquisitive art show held annually since 1997, with prizes across eight categories and all artwork offered for sale. The show aims to support and encourage both emerging and established artists currently living, working or studying within the City of Sydney and Inner West Council boundaries.

After two years of the pandemic, we are very excited to announce that the 2022 Glebe Art Show @ Tramsheds will go ahead in June 2022.



We welcome our new sponsors this year including the Inner West Council, which will sponsor the Works on Paper and Painting prizes and the Glebe Family Medicine Practice which will sponsor the People's Choice award. We value the support of our local Councils and businesses. View full details of prizes and sponsors


In 2022 the judges will be Patrick Blake and Dario Gardiman (Photography).
