It was time to freshness up the gallery space, after 2 years of openings on carpet it was looking like I needed to chance the flooring as regular carpet cleaning just wasn't doing the trick. The options were polished concrete, painting the concrete (depending on the state of the concrete under the carpet!) or floating floor boards. Once we ripped up the carpet and saw the concrete, it became obvious floating floorboards was going to be our best option. Budget played a major role in choosing the floor material and after some back and forth phone calls, we finally secured some self installing 'click clack' boards from Bunnings! The result has been amazing, the light coloured floor has lifted the gallery space and made it a lovely brighter and has given the gallery a more spacious feel.
We celebrating the start of the gallery's 3rd year with a big group exhibition: THREE from SAT 14 JAN - SUN 29 JAN 2017, filling the gallery space and installing in a 'salon' style format trying to emulate the style of more European galleries. It was a challenge but we had fun and it was so enjoyable to be around such beautiful works for 3 weeks.
