Mosman Art Gallery by Walter Burley Griffin

Mosman Art Gallery & Community CentreThe Mosman Art Gallery & Community Centre is located in Sydney's inner north. The building consists of the old 1915 Methodist Church designed by Burcham Clamp and Walter Burley Griffin, with a 1993 extension made of brick and concrete in a style keeping with the church. The older area of the building is available for hire for functions (and was laid out for a wedding reception when I visited).

Currently on display in the gallery is "Adam Hill - Not a proppa Aborigine". This contrasted with "Australian Accent: the Designs of Annan Fabrics and Vande Pottery of the '40s and '50s". There are photographs of some works from the opening. The Powerhouse Museum also has an extensive database on Annan Fabrics.
