July 3rd, 2022Little Gallery reaches double digits
THIS year marks the 10th anniversary of the Little Gallery, which was originally established as an artist collective in 2010.
One of the founding artists, Rose Wilson, who has been with the gallery for the duration says the gallery has grown from strength to strength and housed the works of well over 200 regional artists since it was established.
“The Little Gallery is a privately run artist space but it also supports other local creatives, by hosting group exhibitions and showcasing numerous consignment artists and guest artists to exhibit throughout the year.
“The Winter Group show and Christmas shows are all about bringing the art community together and sharing it with the region.”
Trentham’s Little Gallery 2022 Winter Show opens Friday, July 15 and has become a popular event, highly anticipated by locals, art lovers and collectors.
“The majority of the guest artists in the Winter Show have not exhibited at Little Gallery before so patrons of the gallery will see something completely different from previous shows and will be very impressed with the diversity of art exhibiting.
“The artists in this year’s show have a plethora of awards and accolades due to their high standard of excellence in their chosen medium, so this is a perfect opportunity to buy an investment piece or just own a beautiful piece of original art.”
The show will feature prominent local names including Julie Chandler, Philip Edwards, Sylvia Hollis, George Lianos, Jo Linsdell, Gabrielle Martin, Akiko Nagino, Alison Parkinson, Marina Pribaz, Mike Rutherford, Taka Sugawara, Kirsty Williams and Peter Young. The show will also include works by the Little Gallery collective – Helen Cottle, Larissa Gray, Kim Haughie, Ri Van Veen and Rose Wilson.
On the back of every exhibition the Little Gallery has, over the years, always donated to various charities as its way of giving back to a community that has been a massive support over the past 10 years. Apart from The Little Gallery donating the commission on all sold works, the gallery collective artists will each donate a piece of artwork alongside donations from local businesses for an art raffle.
This year proceeds will go to the Trentham Primary School with previous recipients including The Path of the Horse and the Quarry Street Reserve.
The 2022 Winter Show officially opens on Friday, July 15 at 5.30pm to celebrate the 10th anniversary and everyone is welcome. The exhibition will run until August 8. Gallery hours are 10am to 4pm from Thursday to Monday.
