Recycle smartly

Soft plastics, unwanted clothes and e-waste can now be easily recycled through Mosman Council’s partnership with RecycleSmart.

Mosman residents can book a regular day to recycle all the tricky stuff that does not belong in the yellow bin.

The arrangement follows a successful trial program which diverted clothing and other textiles from landfill, supported by Council and the NSW Environment Protection Authority.

Head to recyclesmart.com and book a pick up for the items to be collected directly from the doorstep for recycling.

Give back to Gallery

Art-loving residents are being encouraged to help enhance Mosman Art Gallery and the renowned Mosman Art Collection by joining the Gallery’s growing group of supporters.

Making a donation, becoming a Creative Circle member, or supporting the ongoing Hunters & Collectors Conservation Project, are among ways to help the Gallery achieve its vision as one of Australia’s leading regional galleries.
Public support ensures that the Gallery continues to present dynamic exhibitions, while offering inspiring programs and cross-generational engagement with visual arts, building on the recent Hunters & Collectors campaign which raised more than $110,000 for the care and conservation of the art collection’s top 100 artworks.

Theatre of the Grotto

An immersive installation by Sydney-based artist Kate Dorrough is the latest work to be exhibited in The Cube, Mosman Art Gallery’s dedicated space for experimental art.

Portrait – Kate Dorrough.

The site-specific installation titledTheatre of the Grotto is a playful contemporary interpretation of ancient river cave formations or a grotto, consisting of shells, rocks, statuary and water. Grottoes are often associated with the underworld, a meeting place between the human and the divine, and an original source of water representing life. Featuring painting, textiles, sculptural objects, video and sound, the installation is reminiscent of a theatre, the sculptures actors within this dramatic stage setting.
