A fledgling idea for a collaborative curatorial initiative began to spark in late 2016. By March 2017, Co-Director Heather Tralaggan and I opened the doors to Collab Gallery, with the generous support of the City of Sydney's Creative Spaces Program.
Beginning as a bricks and mortar gallery space within Pine Street Creative Arts Centre, Collab has evolved and grown to present exhibitions, coordinate arts projects and connect art lovers to art through our online platform of affordable art.
As a curatorial initiative, Heather Tralaggan and I work closely with Australian artists to promote their work and offer specialist curatorial services to realise arts projects. We focus on emerging and unrepresented artists and aim to foster arts engagement by connecting artists with the public.
