A new contemporary art gallery opens. Congratulations Dave! Apparently this clean white cube is the result of a month’s working of mucking and sweat, and it certainly shows as a passionate exhibition space. He had that look I’ve seen in myself and others who meet a tight launch deadline – shell shocked, relieved and somewhat smug. Note the tin ceilings and new floors … deceptively simple major renovations.
Yep, this space represents my art fantasy in Hamilton – a clean white space and contemporary art in the Art Crawl zone. Guess I will have to settle for being a fan, and independent gallery owners in the area like Dave make that easy.
