CWM Galleries represent artists who conceive and create works of beauty, providing pleasure and insight to their fellow man. In our view there is enough ugliness in this world without artists contributing to it.We totally reject the concept of elitism and the pretensions that so often inhibit people in approaching and enjoying art.A red dot on a white canvas will always be a red dot on a white canvas, an installation of underwear on the floor will always be underwear on the floor. I suspect I could even create these 'works of art' myself.Back in the 1990's we set out to change that and to-day CWM Galleries are regarded by many as Australia's premier commercial sculpture galleries. The sculptures we exhibit are created in classical and lasting materials, a legacy for future generations.You are invited to judge the level of skill required to conceive and create the wonderful and lasting works we exhibit. CWM Galleries constantly exhibit up to 180 sculptures and 200 paintings by Contemporary Australian Artists.The artists creating these works include both award winning artists and highly regarded teachers of their craft.CWM Galleries provides sponsorship and/or manages a number of our artists. Many of the works displayed are exclusive to our galleries.We urge you to acquire works of art that you really love and welcome your next visit to CWM Galleries.

I can only agree with the other reviews on this site. What a surprise to see such a variety of Australian painting and sculpture beautifully displayed in an historic sandstone building right in the heart of the CBD. Chris wasn't there the day we visited...More

Too often, privately run galleries give one the impression that unless you have squillions to spend, you are not really welcome. This gallery is the exact opposite! I had limited time, but Chris and Linda were very welcoming and I had a great time looking...More

Beautiful gallery with a great range of art by local Australian artists. The pieces are stunning, well worth just going in to have a look - why not it is free. Very impressed with the quality and the variety of the work available. Even thought...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
