COLLECTIONS exhibition at PLATFORM72
On Saturday 30 August, contemporary art gallery, showroom and creative retail store PLATFORM72 officially opened their newest space at 62 Atchison Street, St Leonards, Sydney with the launch of their inaugural exhibition COLLECTIONS.
COLLECTIONS – features different themed rooms including an exhibition of contemporary black and white work by 10 Australian artists working across various mediums including painting, drawing, mixed media, photography, sculpture and a delicate feminine room featuring watercolours, oil paintings and textiles by 6 Australian artists.
Exhibition highlights include works by 2004 Archibald winner, Craig Ruddy and other acclaimed Sydney artists.
This exhibition is now finished.
The new Atchison Street venue is PLATFORM72’s third Sydney showroom and also acts as the base for their in-home art consultation service, dubbed ‘the art gallery that comes to you’.
Customers can book private one-one-one art consultations at their home, office or the St Leonards showroom, to explore the range of works with an experienced art curator who will walk them through the art-buying process and assist them in finding the perfect artwork that suits their taste, budget and space.
Customers can select from PLATFORM72’s huge range of contemporary artworks on display at the showroom and online. They currently have over 80 contemporary Australian artists on their books with prices ranging from $5 to $15,000.
PLATFORM72 at St Leonards will also host bi-annual exhibitions in their upstairs gallery which will be open to the public.
PLATFORM72 Director, Juliet Rosser, said she was delighted to be opening her third Sydney venture within the TWT Creative Precinct.
“PLATFORM72 at St Leonards will be our first venture on the north shore and our largest showroom and gallery space to date. We’re really looking forward to bringing PLATFORM72’s eclectic collection of artworks to St Leonards and providing a personal art buying experience that allows people to engage with contemporary art in an enjoyable and convenient way that suits their individual needs.
“I love introducing people to the joy of living with and engaging with art and artists. I believe art should be acquired from the heart and if it becomes an investment even better but should never be purchased with the resale value in mind.” Ms Rosser added.
LOCATION: 62 Atchison Street, St Leonards
