A new bohemian gallery is making its way to Adelaide.
Opening this February in James place Worth Gallery at The Coffee Pot will transport you back in time to the 1920s.
Inspired by the art cafes of early 1900’s Paris, This gallery off the west end of Rundle Mall follows a winding staircase into an old Gentleman’s Newspaper Reading Room.
Worth Gallery founder Amy Sierp-Worth described the space as “dark and intimate with a unique interior.”
“You feel creative just being in the space,” said Amy.
Upon entrance, guests will find large format newspaper stands that have been modernised by artists work that is contemporary and affordable.
“There are booths and intimate little spaces where I want to display art that is for sale under $1000,” she continued.
“The goal is to have artists in residence who are working in the gallery and have art for sale.”
“The space won’t follow the traditional cafe layout or menu, it will be more Parisian and bohemian.”
“I’m really passionate about how the arts can help people get through this tough time we’re in. Worth Gallery at the Coffee Pot is a publicly accessible art venue. Bringing entertainment and art together!”
Fresh Art from the producers will be served up as well as some other tasty brews and snacks from our local talent in SA. Stay tuned for music gigs!
The first exhibition will take guests up the winding staircase to the top floor, where you will find a large light-filled space with breathtaking artworks by Muzaffar Ali, a Hazara photographer and human rights activist from Afghanistan.
The exhibition is titled – An Afghanistan Lost: Photography by Muzafar Ali At Worth Gallery at The Coffee Pot.
In the true Fringe form the venue has promised the odd surprise and improvised performance… expect a bit of music, perhaps some cabaret and comedy
Everyone is welcome to themselves at home in ‘The Coffee Pot ‘ and use it as a space to be amongst other artists.
The venue is set to open at the end of February to coincide with Adelaide Fringe.
You can visit The Coffee Pot at 1/27 Rundle Mall, Adelaide, SA, 5000 – enter off James Place
