2 May 2011 | A new contemporary art gallery and project space called Venn Gallery has opened on Queen Street in Perth’s CBD.

The 2011 program includes Alan Jones, Jacqui Stockdale, Gian Manik, Clare Davies and Jackson Eaton.

The gallery also houses a design shop, artist studios and a bar & café.

It has been launched by business partners Desi Litis and Jade Rubino who hope to provide a venue for curated group shows, solo shows and collaborative projects, as well as supporting new media and multidisciplinary arts. There will be approximately eight exhibitions a year.

Litis and Rubino plan to take on formal representation agreements with artists in the near future but are still in the process of finding their feet. They expect to have the first few artists confirmed before the end of the year.
