St Heliers Street Gallery
Established in 2009, St Heliers Street Gallery is an Abbotsford Convent Foundation initiative showcasing the diverse artistic talent of the Convent's tenant community. This gallery space is located on the ground floor of the main Convent building across from Cam’s, forming a natural meeting place and hub for artistic activity. The gallery welcomes over 2000 visitors each week and provides an opportunity for cross-pollination and artistic dialogue within the tenant community, forming a key component of the Abbotsford Convent Foundation’s vision to be a unique arts, culture and learning precinct. St Heliers Street Gallery presents a year-round, six-week exhibition schedule and does not charge a commission on any of the works sold.

The Abbotsford Convent Foundation calls for Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for St Heliers Street Gallery annually, open to artists and curators whose work spans a cross section of practices, including visual arts, performance, photography and design, delivering exhibitions, artists’ talks, workshops and events.
The last call for EOIs was in September 2017.
