Gallery walls ready for art The new owner of a Nelson art gallery is looking for contemporary artists to show their work. Daniel Mortimer has taken over the lease of a small art studio on Alma Lane on Bridge St. He has also taken over the lease of next door Sun City Taxis, providing a larger gallery. Daniel previously worked in a high end art gallery in Wellington’s Cuba St, owned by prominent dealer Peter McLeavey. He also opened his own gallery on Cuba St, which closed. He hoped to do something slightly different in Nelson, by allowing artists to rent a wall space in the gallery. He would give artists the first week free, and they could then pay for wall space. Artists were offered 2.5m of wall space at $77 a week. If they sold artwork he would charge 20 per cent commission. He was looking for artists who were interested in displaying their work in the space and was looking for contemporary work. Daniel says ‘‘all kinds of art and media, apart from mediocrity’’, would be considered. This week he was busy painting the space and said he hoped to open before Christmas. He hoped eventually to have 10 to 12 artists displaying their work in the space. He would like a range of artists displaying their work including artists and ‘‘outsider artists’’ who might not get the chance to show their work in galleries. ‘‘It’s very much designed to be a community space.’’ ❚ Daniel welcomes interested artists to drop by to 140 Bridge St. Tui Glen Rest Home & StepOut StepOut is an “in home service” provided by Tui Glen Rest Home.
