The exhibition space will feature 25 artists of various disciplines during the three months it operates, with up to four artists featuring in each two-week program.

“It’s been a crazy couple of weeks,” Judith posted to her Facebook Page.

“It all started with a vision not that long ago. To now pulling together an art gallery in the heart of Thirroul.

“Art Space 2515 is a pop up art gallery in support of the local artist community. A space where emerging and established artist can showcase their work, a place where we can all come together and celebrate the wonderful creative community we live in.” 

The first exhibition features three artists, Judith Russo, Alison Lawther and Daniel Breda, and will open on Friday from 11am. An official opening ceremony will take place at the shop from 6pm on Friday.
