Five days left for our ‘Forever Plastic’ exhibition! If you haven’t already swung by the gallery, you can always take a look at our online catalogue here – ‘Forever Plastic Online Catalogue‘.
Lucky us! The gallery now has a small collection of work by Penny Snars and Rhonda Dwyer from their ‘Artefact’ exhibition shown in the gallery earlier this year. Here are a few images….these would definately bring a smile to someone’s face this Christmas! – bk
can’t believe it’s February already! 2010 is looking great. Lots of things happening here at 2 Danks. We have ART MONTH coming up in MARCH! Brenda may Gallery will be hosting a film night on Thursday 18th March and all the galleries will be opening late. There will also be another Danks St conversation evening taking place on Wednesday 17th March…..in the mean time…..here at the studio we’re planning for 2011 already.
We’re now calling for submissions for our 2011 Exhibition Program. We’d love to hear from artists, and curators working in the area of contemporary jewellery, object and small scale scultpure. Please contact the gallery for proposal guidelines – our details can be found at www.studio2017.com.au.
Finally, the galleries at 2 Danks St have given in to the overwhelming demand to open Sundays! A nice way to spend a Sunday…. brunch at the Depot Cafe, then a leisurely browse amongst some great art…and of course, some great contemporary jewellery! The complex is open from 11am to 4pm on Sundays and 11am to 6pm Tuesday to Saturday.
One of the pieces in our current exhibition. From a series I’m working on titled ‘food for thought’. We’re looking forward to an exciting year ahead. Alot of our energy was spent last year setting up the space and getting our head around all the admin bits and pieces that are required for running a gallery/studio. This year we’ll be stocking work by some fantastic contemporary jewellery artists and focusing on bringing lots of exciting new work into the gallery. Here’s to a great 2009!
BK’s off to Japan!!! Poor Mel, I wish I could pack her in my suitcase. I booked the flight today. Am looking forward to Tokyo and discovering all the art galleries and visiting Deux Poisson Gallery. Was at an artist friends place for a bbq on the weekend and Daniel Goettin was there (he currently has a wonderful show on at Connie Dietzschold Gallery)…turns out he is a big fan of Tokyo, so I have a very long scrawled list of places to see, things to eat, and trains to catch (happy for more ideas from anyone out there)……am very excited, but before that we have our BIG LAUNCH of Studio 20/17 —– lots to do!! Mel and I discovered the difference between normal glass (green tinge) and Star Fire Glass today (much clearer and more expensive)….we now have to decided which one to get to put in our drawer units that we’re having made for the gallery space (do we want all the work to have a slight green tinge? Will anyone really notice?)……….fingers crossed they’ll be ready before the Launch and Emma’s opening!
We realise we’re in a fabulous location and that there are lots of wonderfully creative artist/designer/makers out there….so we’d like to offer our space for exhibition of your gorgeous and adventurous work………we’re putting out a CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS for exhibitions of work for a few exhibitions each year (we’re still nutting out how many we can deal with…argh, the admin!!! – we want to make our own work too)!! The people that wander in and out of the Danks St Arts Complex are an interesting and fascinating bunch, either interested in the arts, artists, or involved in the arts in some other way. Whilst we realise our space is a small one, it’s a wonderful opportunity to showcase your work to this audience. So, for anyone interested , please drop us an email at studio2017(at)optusnet.com.au, and a couple of images of your work you and we’ll send you out some info….
