A-M Gallery is an independent contemporary art space in the vibrant arts district of Newtown/Darlington (Sydney, Australia). Exhibiting both established and emerging artists working in traditional and new media, the gallery focuses on selecting the most exciting contemporary art for its program, sourced through an annual submission process.
Established in August 2011, A-M Gallery was conceived as a space where the artist is central. Our guiding principle is that if we look after artists well, the rest will fall into place. We aim to work as partners with the artists who exhibit with us, as well as ensuring that every artist, established or emerging, young or old, friend or stranger, has an equal opportunity to show in the space, based only on the quality of her/his proposed exhibition.
A-M Gallery is not a commercial gallery in the traditional sense, nor is it an artist run initiative. We seek to capture the best of each model, the professionalism in approach and presentation of the former, and the innovation and risk-taking of the latter.
These elements combine to produce a diverse program, which is crucial in engaging with a variety of audiences. Engagement with our local community is very important to us and we work hard to create an inviting space for both the seasoned and the uninitiated in the arts. Over the course of a year, our audience will encounter work they like, are challenged by, or perhaps even dislike, but if the environment is inviting and comfortable, we believe they will keep coming back and be richer for the experience.
