After 5 1/2 years of operation as a community not for profit art gallery, Marrickville Council is not renewing ESP Gallery's lease and so we must close.
While we will no longer have a physical gallery space, we do have plans for the future, including an online gallery and occasional ESP group shows around Sydney.
It's been a ball and the party isn't over, it's just going virtual !
To thank you, our dear ESP'ers, our friends and supporters, artists, art-lovers, & volunteers, we are having a final fling on Sunday 18 January. We will open all day from 11am for our garage sale and then at 4pm, we will party like it's 2009 way back when we first opened!
Garage Sale : Sun 18th January 11am - 4pm - lots of bargains, tools, chairs, plinths, mower, desk, etc.
Final Fling : Sun 18th January 4pm & onwards, come & meet the ESP team, who have shown over 300 local, national and international artists and held 75 exhibitions and events since 2009, including Marrickville Contemporary Art Prize 2011, 2012, Head On Festival 2010, 2012, Sydney Canvas Company Painting Prize 2013.
We are proud of what we have achieved with no government grants and our completely volunteer run organisation!
