Tap Gallery


Tap Gallery is an artist run space and has been around for 24 years.

It was originally in Taylor Square Darlinghurst and moved to Palmer Street just before the turn of the century.

Lesley Dimmick, the founder and overall manager, gives her heart and soul to the venue which is there for artists /artisans of all types. It is a melting pot of the underground art scene for artists who want to promote themselves.

Tap supports and guides artists on their journey whether they are beginning or been in the scene for many years, Tap also provides a wealth of knowledge that is freely given to anyone that needs it or we can point them in the right direction at any given time.

There is always something on at Tap from the Thursday night art and craft markets, comedy on Tap (first Friday of the month) Noise on film (last Friday of the month) Sunday sessions at Tap (music, last sun of each month) new art shows weekly, theatre weekly, Sunday Tango with Tango rio, short plays downstairs, short art courses , clown classes, comedy classes, magic etc etc etc

Also Tap has installations and performance art, fashion parades , book launches etc.

Tap survives on a budget of nothing and make things happen to get your art /art form out there!
