And for those of you not in the know, it will be one of the last shows at the Bridget Kennedy Project Space, as Bridget is going to be closing down the gallery next March, after 5 years on Ridge St and over 14 years in galleries – starting with the amazing Studio 20/17 with Melanie Ihnen in Waterloo (postcode 2017).
So while we can hold off until next year for BK’s valedictory speech, next week’s exhibition opening will surely mark the beginning of the celebrations. I won’t be able to make it myself (I did show there this year, finally visiting the space in person, multiple times!) so from the sidelines I want to I encourage all who are in the neighbourhood to get along and celebrate all that she’s done for the industry.
