It was about a year ago that I decided to hire an artspace and develop an exhibition that would showcase the work of some very talented artists from the Wide Bay Region.
The first five artists I spoke to jumped on board quickly, and when we discussed the show, we decided that six artists would be enough.
The Graydon Gallery is a lovely space in New Farm. It is available for hire and with six artists involved it was quite reasonable in terms of costs. The artists can also share the workload and the manning of the gallery.
We had a great opening night with over 200 attending the event. There were several sales. By the end of the two weeks we had sold about $11,000 worth of art.
We declared the event a great success, and are thinking of booking for 2017.
Attached is a photo of one of the works shown at Graydon Gallery.
