When the industrial suburb of Waterloo started to gentrify in 2001, arts patron Leo Christie developed 2 Danks Street, a complex of commercial galleries, each specialising in a different genre. Brenda May, for instance, represents emerging and established Australian talent including painter and printmaker Robert Boynes and Peter Tilley. Elsewhere, Utopia Art Sydney has a roster that features lauded painter Gloria Petyarre, as well as Papunya Tula artists from the Western Desert region; and Aboriginal & Pacific Art concentrates on contemporary indigenous works from all over the country. There are five other galleries here, in addition to the jewellery workshop and showroom Studio 20/17.
