Garry Glaskin opened his gallery in 2009 and it’s well worth a visit if you are in the Trinity Beach area. Not only does it display a broad range of contemporary artwork, but it boasts a cafe, a reading/resource area, a teaching facility and a wide screen tv. This is a multi-purpose facility that caters for its community.
I was most taken with the extent of contemporary art on display. The gallery is very supportive of abstract art. Indigenous art is well represented and there is much to look at while you enjoy a coffee or a cold drink.
Visitors will see landscapes, seascapes, symbolist art, social and political, and abstraction through painting, mixed media, printmaking and drawing. The presentation of the work is first class and the gallery has a wonderful atmosphere. A weekly art class that encourages abstract art is also popular.
Galleries such as this are important as they give artists the opportunity to display their work and share their ideas with art lovers and patrons of visual art.
Next week I will share the work of some of the gallery’s artists.
