TAP Gallery - Darlinghurst

TAP Gallery is an 'open policy, artist-run collective' providing a forum for emerging artists to exhibit and promote their work. The Gallery is also a venue for visual and performing arts events.

Here you will find information on our many shows and events. We have art exhibitions opening every wednesday, and new shows in the theatre. There are many events going on to partake in, such as our 'Sketch Club' for life drawing, 'Club Tap' for Poetry & Song writing, and 'Caught Short' evenings of film. TAP also holds several annual Art Prizes.

Both the Exhibition Space and Theatre are available for hire from our services page.


We have two new sections opening soon. Our PROFILE pages where artists can permenantly exhibit all of their best works, and our online STORE were you can buy art from our talented local artists. Please contact us if you would like further information or would like to be included in either section.
