Gallerysmith launched in its current premises in May, 2008. Since that time the gallery has developed a strong reputation for showcasing artists with international reputations and important mid-career artists while also successfully shaping the careers of younger practitioners. Founding director Marita Smith’s former career as curator of public art collections, coupled with her degrees in Architecture (Fine Art) and post grad Museum Studies has given her a firm foundation in the visual arts to be a leader in her field as a gallerist. Gallerysmith artists are regularly selected for awards, curated exhibitions and acquired by public gallery collections. Gallerysmith’s list of represented artists is carefully selected to uphold the gallery’s vision of presenting work which has enduring cultural value.
In addition to the three spacious galleries downstairs which present up to 15 solo exhibitions each year, Gallerysmith launched an additional project gallery in 2014 where it exhibits more experimental work, largely by unrepresented artists. Gallerysmith Project Space website is gsprojectspace.com
The Gallerysmith building is also home to a number of studios which provides space for twelve visual artists across a variety of disciplines.
