Art Galleries
See the Blue Mountains through a new light

The Blue Mountains has a world of art galleries to enjoy. A great fraction of what the Blue Mountains is today is the reflection of its venerable cultural heritage. To this day, the Blue Mountains’ deeply rooted Aboriginal culture remains to be its beating heart.

It is the singular element that makes Blue Mountains a home as it is a destination. This blue-hazed plateau has been the traditional home of the Darug and Gundungurra folks. For thousands of years, the sandstone lands served as the dwelling place of Aboriginal groups.

The lush rainforests, gorges, and deep valleys inspired artisans to craft works of art that express uniqueness and diversity.

Various local art galleries featuring original paintings and sculptures can be found in the Blue Mountains, making it The City of The Arts.

Falls Gallery

Falls Gallery is one of the art galleries that the Blue Mountains boasts of. Situated in the beautiful town of Wentworth Falls, Falls Gallery fits in the picture perfectly with its restored early 1900’s weatherboard cottage.

Falls Gallery houses paper and ceramic works of art meticulously created by established and emerging native artists.

This group of Australian artists is composed of Garry Shead, Arthur Boyd, Wendy Sharpe, Max Miller, Anne Smith, Bernard Ollis, Charles Blackman, John Olsen, Peter Rushforth, Alan Peascod, Jane Barrow, and Ian Smith.

Lost Bear Gallery

For contemporary art enthusiasts, Lost Bear Gallery provides the ideal art experience in the Blue Mountains. Lost Bear Gallery is located in the Blue Mountains’ chief town Katoomba.

The architecture in itself is a work of art—featuring polished Kauri flooring, Art Nouveau leadlight windows, lofty ceilings, and broad architraves, complemented by antique fireplaces. The esteemed art pieces are displayed in 12 different exhibition spaces along with an outdoor sculpture garden.

Among the artists of Lost Bear Gallery are David Beschi, James Blackwell, Martin Campbell, Greg Cliffe, Robyn Collier, Jo Ernst, Jacqueline Fowler, Warwick Fuller, Jody Graham, Graham Hallett, and Phillip Hay.

Hat Hill Gallery

At Hat Hill Gallery, art and music marry in an original 1920’s printing factory.

Hat Hill Gallery showcases fine contemporary art from Australian artists in Blackheath, Blue Mountains.

This commercial art gallery holds original works of Andrew Ireland, Cate Dudley, Emma Magenta, Jenny Kee, and Josh Honeyman. An eclectic selection of new and vintage vinyls are also offered on Hat Hill’s shelves.

Norman Lindsay Gallery

In a stone cottage in Faulconbridge, the Norman Lindsay Gallery and Museum displays the work of the eponymous artist.

Built in the 1900s, the gallery was formerly the home of writer-artist Norman Lindsay (1879-1969), who adorned the house with his paintings, drawings, sculptures, and ship models.

Australia’s National Trust currently runs the preserved gallery, which includes an oil painting studio and an etching studio with an adjoining café.

Each gallery echoes the character of Blue Mountains’ longstanding culture. A visit to any of the galleries is encumbered with a fulfilling experience that depicts essential pieces of Australia’s art history and cultural heritage.
