Bluethumb X Southern Buoy: 40 x 40 Exhibition Opening

On May 2nd, we welcomed artists and collectors into our Richmond and Adelaide galleries for the official opening of the Bluethumb X Southern Buoy: 40 x 40 dual exhibitions. Thank you to all who joined us for the unforgettable evening. The talented Kit Edwards took the images below, which provide a visual tour of the Melbourne exhibition.

The gallery was packed full of people and artistic excellence.

“Opening night was a huge success,” says Richmond Gallery Manager Conor. “A large crowd attended, including members of the Bluethumb family, exhibiting artists, and new and returning collectors. The event was a fantastic celebration of expression from a diverse group of talented artists.” You’ll find Conor at the Richmond Gallery Monday through Saturday, where you can vote for your favourite artwork!

Passersby can’t help but stop and gaze through the gallery windows at Bluethumb X Southern Buoy: 40 x 40.

Each artwork, meticulously crafted on 40cm x 40cm canvases framed by Southern Buoy, showcases the unique vision and talent of the participating artists. The works range from striking still life and portraiture to tranquil landscapes and captivating abstract compositions. Artists have pushed their boundaries; those accustomed to smaller-scale pieces have tackled larger canvases, while large-scale abstract artists have condensed their work.
