Hello. Welcome to The Black Chandelier! This is Limerick & this is my exciting new project. :)

Thanks to Renew Newcastle and a very generous Landlady, I have the opportunity to follow a long held dream.

The Black Chandelier has brewing in my mind for about ten years now. It is a gallery which is a hub with heART, filled with work lovingly made & displayed in a space which is warm, inviting & accessible to people who are new to Art.

The Black Chandelier has fourteen confirmed artists who will be permanent exhibitors in this fantastic, harbourside location in Newcastle, Australia.

This, I have to admit, is the most exciting part. I have the amazing opportunity to get to know these fabulous people via interviews and their art. I also have the honour of introducing them to You. :) I know they will love you as I do & You – them.

I am uploading photographs of the site which is very raw at the moment. (Check them out – they’re just over there) It is very much a gallery under construction with the power only just being connected and the first coats of paint drying on the walls.

This page for the next couple of weeks is a journal documenting our progress but soon will have works for sale and to admire from some rather remarkable people.

I will introduce the artists to you via words and pictures as they arrive.

The photograph we are using for our Avatar was taken by Mark Ramstead who is one of my favourite artists and personalities on Red Bubble. Thanks Mark. :) I love it!!

Thanks for reading about The Black Chandelier!
