The pop-up art shop that was instigated by Hank Spirek as a collective showcase for local artists is closing down "with a bang".
From April 10 to April 17, the exhibition space at the Summer Centre Shopping Centre will host exhibitions and demonstrations - with some selected work selling at discounted rates- , before closing for good on April 25.
Since opening in November, the shop has sold over 100 pieces of work - at a total value of $20,000.
"I would like to thank Paul Saunders, the owner of the Summer Street shopping complex for the free use of the space. I'd also like to thank the public for their enthusiastic support. The members of the Orange Society, Orange Camera Club and Art From The Heart for their art works and manning of the exhibition," Mr Spirek said.
