Venn gallery has announced plans to move from the current Queen Street premises at the end of 2014 in order to operate on a consultancy and project basis. The future direction of Venn Gallery will mean that the organisation will no longer operate from a physical gallery space and will instead work on independent curatorial projects.
During Venn Gallery’s four years of operation, the program has included the work of a number of leading local and national artists. It has focused on exhibiting established and emerging contemporary artists that work across a variety of mediums. Director Desi Litis says: “It’s been such a wonderful experience running Venn Gallery and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the amazing artists’ we have worked with and the Perth arts and wider community for all of their continued support.”
Reflecting on the gallery’s impact on Perth’s local arts Litis and gallery manager Bayoush Demissie explain: “We hope the success of the gallery has emphasised how vital a dynamic cultural sector is in creating a vibrant city and we encourage everyone to continue to support the extraordinary group of West Australian contemporary artists and arts organisations that strive to make our city a wondrous place.”
Venn Gallery’s exhibition Summer Show 2014, showcasing a selection of works by the gallery’s represented artists, will run until Friday 5 December 2014.
