I currently have an on going exhibition and manage a FREE artspace (the only strings are for hanging the images) at The Gladstone Hotel, Dulwich Hill and I also have an on going exhibition at The Marlborough Hotel, Newtown. The artspace has been operating since July ‘03 with excellent results for the artists exhibiting while also creating an interest for patrons who normally do not venture into a ‘pub’. Although it is a free artspace I run it along the lines of a commercial gallery. Organising flyers/invites to the media and on my e-mailing list and opening night refreshments. I usually create a DVD slide show of the artist’s work which is then displayed on large format TVs in the artspace for artistic consideration on opening night and for the artist’s resume. I also create a web site for the artist using a free web hosting service. Solo shows are for a month, group shows are for 2 months. We usually have the opening night on the Saturday that the exhibit is hung, that is up to the artist. As it is a pub, I've found that patrons seem to be fairly relaxed & linger longer on a Saturday night than on a week day event. If the artist wishes to provide refreshments, I've arranged that the wine can be bought through the bottle shop and as the schooners are only $3.00, the prices are very reasonable. The artist is limited to 2 plates of 'nibbles' only as there is a bistro/restaurant in the hotel, the display area is part of it. I feel that it is only fair to arrange anything more substantial through the bistro, considering the community fee, FREE. All really quite casual really. Oh yes, insurance, third party/personal injury insurance only, no property insurance.
Expressions of interest are more than welcome, I'm usually at the pub on Thursday evenings from about 5.30pm & I simply book the next artist who allows me to view there art, so come and have a chat.
I am also is interested in connecting with other photographers, fine artists and painters for any projects.
