In another blow to Sydney’s art scene and the diminishing number of its quality contemporary art galleries, Damien Minton announced this morning the closure of his Redfern gallery space.
DAMIEN MINTON GALLERY TO CLOSE
We regret to inform you the Damien Minton Gallery is closing.
Commencing in Newcastle in 2001 and then moving to Redfern in 2005, the gallery will be closing its doors at the end of July 2014. We simply ran out of money. It has been an honour and delight to exhibit contemporary Australia art for that period of time. The gallery has always maintained its fundamental driving principle of exhibiting artists who engage with the Australian cultural landscape. We give you, our audience, a very big thank you for your interest and engagement.We encourage you to join us for the very last exhibitions on the gallery’s calendar.
