“By its very nature, the visual arts are about sharing experiences, and this inspirational group of artists has been consistently generous in providing opportunity for us to share their vision.” – Mary Faith, director, GCS Gallery Abbotsleigh

The not-for-profit gallery is run by Abbotsleigh, an Anglican School for girls and is named in honour of artist and past student Grace Cossington Smith.
