We have a great opportunity for an artist or group of artists to exhibit in our Main Gallery and Project Space from 25th October to the 6th of November 2014. We are calling for artists’ proposals to take these two gallery spaces.
Over the last six months we have had a diverse and exciting lineup of artists; the standard of work has been exceptional. It is very rewarding looking back through the summer months and thinking of all the exhibitors, their artworks and the unique experience of working with each individual artist. The Depot is firmly on the map for a unique exhibitor/visitor experience.
As part of the Auckland Festival of Photography the Depot Artspace was privileged to host Paul Mcnamara Gallery’s photographic exhibition Flora Photographica Aoetaroa. As well as locals, many visitors travelled from across town to see this exhibition and take advantage of the talks and events arranged as part of the festival. We saw over 1,600 visitors during the festival. Year 13 photography art students from Westlake Girls and Takapuna Grammar took advantage of a special opportunity to attend an insightful talk by Peter Peryer and Grant Kerr.
The gallery is a diverse environment and provides a fabulous backdrop and forum for all sorts of creativity. Each time a new exhibition goes up it’s amazing to experience the transformation of the space. The Main Gallery rental is charged at $450 including GST a week and the commission for sales is 30% plus GST. Please see the Proposals page to download a proposal form.
