Happy Holidays from Onespace

Message from the Directors

2018 has been another significant step forward for Onespace Gallery. And it couldn’t have happened without the amazing talent of the artists we work with and their passion for their practice. Thank you to both our represented artists and artists who we have additionally presented through our program.

We have also had a huge boost in support from both curators and individual collectors who have both engaged with our program and artists as collaborators or supported us through acquisitions. In particular we would like to especially thank Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation, QAGOMA, State Library of Queensland, National Gallery of Victoria, Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, University of Queensland Art Museum, QUT Art Museum, Redland Art Gallery, HOTA (Home of the Arts - Gold Coast), Pinnacles Gallery, Caboolture Regional Art Gallery, Queensland Childrens Hospital, Cairns Indigenous Art Fair (CIAF), Women's Legal Service Queensland and Australian High Commission (Singapore).

A very big thank you to our staff, our Gallery Officers – Jamie Mercer until July this year and then Alicia Hollier. Alicia has made an extraordinary contribution in all aspects of our gallery program since picking up the reins from Jamie and is totally geared up for 2019. This year we have also had great support in the gallery from Simon Suckling, our CREATIVEMOVE Project Manager.

We want to sincerely thank all our collaborators who have enabled us to achieve successful projects this year. Our writers, editors, opening night speakers, photographers, graphic designers, and printers. Your contribution and attention to quality outcomes and timely delivery has made us a more effective gallery for our artists and clients. We very much look forward to working with you again in the new year. It was a pleasure and a privellege to welcome new audiences to the gallery this year, especially the Music and Arts Circle hosted by the Hon Justice Anthe Philippides.

We want to wish you and your family a very relaxing and safe holiday period and look forward to exciting collaborations with you in 2019.

- John & Jodie

2018 - Wrapped Up!

2018 gave us the opportunity to curate, coordinate and establish new exhibitions, unique formats and showcase a range of work by some 30 professional artists.

It was a true pleasure to present solo shows by: Zoe Porter, Leigh Schoenheimer, Benjamin Werner and Elisa Jane (Leecee) Carmichael. While supporting group and two-person shows by Kim Demuth, Henri van Noordenburg, Debbie Taylor (Worley), Di Hall, Jay Younger, Amy Carkeek, Sarah Rayner and Mika Nakamura-Mather.

In the latter part of the year, new artists such as Brontë Naylor and Paula Payne showed alongside familiar artists from our 2017 program, Georgina Hooper and Samuel Tupou as part of rightNow, a studio survey exhibition of recent paintings.

To finish the year on a high, we saw the launch of Onespace Pop Up: Art + Design this month, showcasing a terrific group of artists, jewellers and designers alongside the return of Afterimage Editions in the form of our 2018 Collection.
