Intro
A group exhibition featuring works by Gallery artists to farewell and celebrate the existing space before the Brenda May Gallery moves onto its new location.

Artist list

Brenda May Gallery artists, Linda van Niekerk
Last year Brenda May Gallery celebrated the major milestone of turning 30. These three decades have been split between Access Contemporary Art Gallery (est. 1985) in various Sydney locations and Brenda May Gallery at 2 Danks St in Waterloo. The end of 2016 marks 15 years since the Gallery first became a part of this creative complex on Danks Street and also marks its last, in anticipation of being reborn as May Space in 2017. Although the Gallery had fifteen years of exhibitions, artists and clients prior to opening its doors in Waterloo, it owes many of its strengths, experiences and achievements to this complex, including: the introduction of many incredible artists to the Gallery’s stable, expanding to a more global platform across Australasia through art fairs, observing the resilience and innovation of the artworld in the aftermath of the financial crisis, and the embrace of new media technologies within the commercial art market. 

"Yeah. Cheers. Thanks a lot" is an ode to Brenda May Gallery's time at 2 Danks Street. An ode to the relationships made, fostered and developed; to the hard times endured and the incredible times shared; to the many anniversaries, openings and events held and enjoyed; to the other galleries within the complex that have been our peers, neighbours and support group; and to the artists that transform the space every month into something original and exciting. With this vision in mind, this exhibition will feature new works by our Gallery artists, in admiration of their talent and in honour of how they have shaped the Gallery as it stands today. This good bye to the current space is both a celebration of what Brenda May Gallery and its artists have achieved under its roof, whilst also marking this milestone before the Gallery moves onto new things… Yeah. Cheers. Thanks a lot.

About Linda van Niekerk
Tasmanian based jewelry designer, Linda van Niekerk, had her very first exhibition with Brenda May Gallery in Danks Street in 2004.

“I credit (or blame…) Brenda for starting me on the path to jewelry design.  Without her insight and encouragement I might never have embarked on this fulfilling endeavor.
To celebrate and farewell the gallery in Danks street, I have created fun, easy to wear sculptural pieces that I hope will encourage the wearer to be bold, proud and walk tall.
Yeah, cheers and thank you Brenda and Meg.”
