ILLAWARRA-based artists are being given the opportunity to add colour to summer with the opening of a pop-up art space in Thirroul on Friday.
Art Space 2515 is the brainchild of landscape photographer Judith Russo to help struggling artists reconnect with their audiences and gain recognition following COVID-19 restrictions.
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.
Art Space 2515 will be located at Shop 1, Thirroul Plaza, Lawrence Hargrave Drive, Thirroul.
