MAY SPACE: FOURTEEN
- group exhibition, 2017

1 to 25 March 2017

MAY SPACE has transitioned from an anticipated idea into a physical reality. Supported by the 31 years of experience gained operating as Access Contemporary Art Gallery (est. 1985) and Brenda May Gallery (est. 2001), MAY SPACE aims to move forward under this new identity, reinvigorating a dedication to emerging, mid-career and established artists. The new name, new space and new direction will be coloured and shaped by fourteen people in particular - our represented artists.

We now present MAY SPACE: FOURTEEN; an exhibition in which each represented artist presents a significant work that best displays their creativity and capabilities. This inaugural exhibition will give our audience, new and inherited, insight into the vision and orientation of this third incarnation.

Robert Boynes, Sybil Curtis, Todd Fuller, Ashleigh Garwood, James Guppy, Waratah Lahy, Melinda Le Guay, Al Munro, Carol Murphy, Mylyn Nguyen, Catherine O'Donnell, Leslie Oliver, Peter Tilley and Nicole Welch.
