You can never go wrong with black

At Kate Owen we are always on the move whether it is sourcing new artists and paintings, expanding the gallery, making new friends or making the gallery look fabulous. We have just painted the walls of one of our rooms....charcoal. Unusual you will say but the result is absolutely stunning. The works hanging on the walls are revealed on the dark background and look even greater. This room is now our favourite! Come and see for yourself and get inspired. Who knows, you might go home with a new artwork and a pot of paint to get the same effect in your house! 

Gallery Opening

We opened on Thursday 22 February 2007 in Sydney at 680 Darling Street, Rozelle.

We are located on Darling Street one shop west from its intersection with Victoria Road.

We are a friendly, informative gallery, keen to help art lovers - from first-time-just-thinking-about-it buyers to committed collectors.

Kate's studio is above the ground floor gallery and adds an interesting dimension to the gallery... here there are works in progress and all the paraphernalia of a working studio.

The Studio was also once part of an infamous gambling den. With plush velvet hangings, potted palms, gilt furniture etc. It was a strongly guarded hideaway for some of Sydney's most influential people - as well as some not quite so well heeled - but all patrons had to be identified to get past a rigorous door guard.

 The studio still has a full sized bar and heavy duty steel doors with sliding locks and padlocks - to keep the police out?


The opening exhibition will be of Kate's 'Outback' and 'Grasslands' series, but will also feature a mix of interesting exhibitions, showcasing both Australian and Overseas Artists. Kate's own work will be on show throughout the year in the print room (behind the main gallery) and in the upstairs studio.

WE are always interested in expressions of interest from Curators, Art Dealers and Artists so we can keep our gallery stimulating. Please contact Kate via email (click on contact Kate) or call 0400 508 050 for further information.
