Days Left

RED Gallery is one of Melbourne’s most loved independent gallery’s nestled firmly in Fitzroy’s dynamic Art’s Precinct since 2002. This artist-led and driven gallery has been supporting and showcasing incredible artistic talent in all stages of their careers but especially at the ‘grass-roots’ level, giving artists a warm and supportive platform to showcase their innovations and passions.

Our scarlet doors have hosted artists such as: Adrian Doyle, Steve Rosendale, Emily Ferretti, Graeme Doyle, Steve Cox, Louisa Jenkinson, Yvette Coppersmith, Aly Aitken, Kate Hendry, Julie Silvester, Isabel Davies, Damon Kowarsky, Michael Staniak, Nora Sumberg, Colleen Morris, Spike F**K, Deborah Williams, Lucy Irvine, John Bodin, Barbara Bolt, Tim Jones, Peter Clarke to name a few.

We are a space that pushes art boundaries and welcomes multi-modal artists in all stages of their creative career. We offer support, creative mentorship and opportunity to be part of the RED family. We also offer workshops for artists and the general community.

RED Gallery is everything that makes art important in our community. We support young emerging students with our annual New Blood Graduate Show as well as female artists in our annual Ladies in Red exhibition. We provide innovative, dynamic and creative mentorship for artists and students in the various stages of their career.

As the owner and Creative Director of RED, I have over 20 years experience as a visual artist but also as an award-winning Art Consultant and Curator with career highlights that include working for the Ministry of Culture at the Athens Olympics and curating art for the Royal Family of Dubai. The gallery is a family business and I have run the business as a Sole-Trader for many years which means the company did not qualify for any of the business grants offered by the government for the COVID19 crisis.

I am seeking support for the ongoing costs to keep these wonderful scarlet doors open as well as the ability to plan dynamic and exciting shows for the future at RED. We are reaching out to the generous community to support our beautiful space during these challenging times.
