A pop-up gallery is an art gallery that literally ‘pops up overnight’, unannounced, in empty retail spaces. Other shop spaces that have recently popped up around Byron include clothing stores and the Big Fish recycled furniture shop beneath the cinema complex.
Mr Dahlsen said, ‘David Gordon from Ray White in Byron Bay has been an ongoing advocate of this cut-price or sponsored use of empty commercial spaces and has come on board as a major sponsor of the exhibition’.
Other sponsors include the Great Northern Hotel and Earth ’n’ Sea Pizza.
The exhibition will run for one month and will be officially opened on Saturday January 14 from 6 to 8pm at 39 Fletcher St, Byron Bay.
It will be compered by Robert Bleakley, from Sotheby’s Australian Art Auction.
