The Oil Room, Norman Lindsay Gallery, Photographer J.Miller
Discover the work of an illustrious local – visit the Norman Lindsay Gallery and its landscaped Roman-style gardens!
Once the home of artist and writer Norman Lindsay (1879-1969) this sandstone cottage and extensive grounds, located at 14 Norman Lindsay Cres Faulconbridge, is now a gallery run by the National Trust, displaying the artist’s impressive practice including watercolours, oils, etchings and ship models.
Perfect for a sunny afternoon stroll, the grounds are dotted with Lindsay’s sculptures and fountains. A Café provides an idyllic setting to dine in after viewing the gallery and exploring the grounds and picturesque bushwalk.
Changing exhibitions ensure that no two visits are the same. The 2015/16 exhibitions include: Billjims and Brothers (WW1); Fantasy of the Sea; and ‘This Shrine- The Single Nude in Norman Lindsay’s Art.’
Our guided tours offer exclusive access to Lindsay’s painting and etching studios as well as his renowned Magic Pudding characters. Offered every hour, hear stories on Lindsay’s life and career from our personable and knowledgeable volunteer guides.
The Norman Lindsay Gallery is a venue for many special events such as Life Drawing summer schools, Art and Literature workshops for Children, Jazz in the Garden, Winter Jazz and Winefest, or Christmas Carols.
