Hidden Gallery is a new gallery space under construction in Dulong, opening in mid-March and now seeking expressions of interest from emerging and established local artists.
The first solo exhibition, by Sandy Van Herberghen, will open on April 21 for three weeks, closely followed by Open Studios Sunshine Coast, Hinterland Trail, an annual event curated and promoted by Arts Connect Inc., which gets under way from May 19.
During the Open Studios event and at various times, there will be demonstrations taking place in the space: acrylic painting with Sandy Van Herberghen, watercolour painting with Kimmyg and Linda Rea, book binding (making handmade books) with Amanda Calder and freehand machine embroidery with Kimmyg.
Hidden Gallery is currently around 40m2 but with relocatable partition walls, can be increased to a maximum of approximately 70 m2, or decreased as required. Gallery stainless steel wire hanging systems and lighting are already in place.
Initial opening hours will be Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11am until 4pm (other days/times by appointment). Participants in the space will be encouraged to get together to network, share ideas and inspiration, relax with a cup of coffee and will also have access to instructional and inspirational books around glass, jewellery, textiles, painting and more.
Hidden Gallery intends to foster and encourage emerging artists in a friendly and helpful environment along with other creatives, as well as to support and promote established artists in the area.
Workshops will also be conducted in the future at Hidden Gallery, bookings and details will be available in late March.
