"ABSTRACT +" has now finished and it was a very rewarding exhibition, I had new people visit the gallery and artists exhibiting for the first time and to keep things going, I had some sales. I'm slowing starting to combination of artists right for the space and really starting to enjoy the curatorial process.
During this exhibition, I also started Instagram workshop for Artists which have been really fun. Probably more for me cause I'm a bit addicted to the medium. Adding to the gallery income, I hope that it will free up some of the financial pressures of running a commercial space, to allow further curatorial freedom. Fingers crossed.
Also been starting to work out 2017 exhibition calendar and looking for opportunities for my Gallery Artists outside of Newcastle. Through some past networking, I'm pleased to secure an exhibition space for Gallery Artists, Helene Leane and Dino Consalvo at Janet Clayton Gallery on Oxford (Sydney) in the first half of 2017.
Now in the process of installing the next exhibition, "COAL DUSTED: Helene Leane" which starts this Wednesday 10 August, opening Saturday 13 August from 2-4pm and ends 27 August. Hopefully, will get a blogpost up before this exhibition ends.
