The Hughes Gallery - Surry Hills


The gallery of Ray Hughes began in Brisbane in 1969 as Gallery 1Eleven in Musgrave Road. In 1988, the principal gallery moved to its present location in Surry Hills. The following year the gallery in Brisbane was closed and the Sydney gallery continued to show the work of prominent Queensland artists through the 1990s until present. In July 2012, the gallery made its most recent name-change to The Hughes Gallery, commemorating the passing of the gallery's management from Ray to Evan Hughes.

Today the gallery represents Australian, New Zealand and Chinese contemporary artists as well as holding a significant stock of German expressionist graphics.
