25 September 2013 | After an 18 month hiatus spent surfing, sailing and fishing around the south coast of Victoria, Lindberg Galleries director David Moulday has teamed up with Leo Dewitte (from Melbourne-based architecture firm McGlashan Everist) to relaunch the Lindberg name.

The gallery officially reopened earlier this month in a new space located in Melbourne. Moulday states "the new location, in its humbleness, allows the direction of the stable to head on a more contemporary bearing, whilst still holding on to its painterly ties from the past."

Lindberg Galleries currently have six artists in its stable, with new signings to be announced in the coming weeks. The relaunch exhibition closes today - it showcases work from Lindberg artists Warwick Baker, Heather Betts, Abbra Kotlarczyk and Simon Pericich, as well as work from Saskia Pandji Sakti. The gallery is located on Brunswick Street in Fitzroy, Melbourne.

After 22 years of unchanged operations, Adelaide's Greenaway Art Gallery is currently closed to renovate and refresh.

Aside from a new look for the gallery itself, there will also be a new program. Exhibitions will run over five weeks instead of three, and there will be a longer period of closure over the summer so the gallery can focus on its international art fair commitments for 2014, in particular Art Dubai and Art Stage Singapore.

Greenaway's Berlin-based offshoot GAG Projects will also be renewed, with a new space and expanded activities to be unveiled.

Greenaway Art Gallery will reopen in its Rundle Street address with an exhibition of new work by Christian Lock in October.
