The gallery interior
This beautiful space, (the original church building) lends itself, spatially and acoustically, to artistic performance.
Thus began the dream to offer the community of Oakleigh, and its surrounding district, a venue where artistic endeavours could be presented, be they visual or audio. In the time since this space was restored and opened as a Gallery in 2007 this space has been host to:
- Exhibitions of paintings, mixed media pieces, as well as drawings.
- A special Easter exhibit of 16 paintings - ‘stations of the cross’ entitled “In the footsteps of Jesus’, with poems and stories for reflection and meditation.
- Numerous classical piano concerts. The first was held in 2008 and offered the music of composers up to 1858, the year Liddiard Gallery was built and formed part of the 150 year celebrations. Further concerts have been held each year since, celebrating the music of a variety of composers and historic events. The concert series celebrated it's 10th Anniversary this year with a week long piano festival.
- Exhibition of artwork by children from the local Kindergarten
As Liddard Gallery is an arm of Oakleigh Anglican Church, exhibitions and performances are selected on the basis of the quality of the work, as well as their sensitivity towards Christian values and ethics.

As well as the Gallery being a place for artistic endeavour, it also offers a beautiful space for small formal gatherings such as Wedding Receptions and other special occasions.
