Boom Gallery finds new home on Pakington Street

Words by Staff Writer

After 13 years on Rutland Street, Boom Gallery has moved out and around the corner.

Contemporary art gallery, Boom Gallery says farewell to its original location of Rutland Street in Geelong West after 13 years of decorating the walls with incredible artworks.

Moving to a new location just a hop, skip and a jump from the original space, their new Pakington Street home houses two exhibition spaces, an object gallery and a dynamic stockroom.

The new space will be opening to the public on Saturday 8 June from 1pm – 3pm, launching in their new round of exhibitions. The first round features a solo exhibition from returning artist Ben Crawford for Between Addresses. A painting showcase, Between Addresses depict peaceful figures, remembered landscapes and dwellings; these scenes are rich with nostalgia, drawing from Crawford’s experience of living across Ireland and Australia.

The second exhibition on offer is New Beginnings, symbolic of the gallery’s transition. As a celebratory exhibition, the shows features works from Amber Stokie, Hop Dac, Kasper Raglus, Sam Massey, Jen Tarry-Smith, Cricket Saleh and Harry McEvoy.

These are sure to ignite the new space as a welcoming event for visitors to revel in the luscious gallery.
