N.Smith Gallery opens its doors in Paddington’s gallery district.

Words: Rose of Sharon Leake

With previous gallery roles at Philip Bacon Galleries in Brisbane and Sullivan+Strumpf in Sydney, Nicholas Smith has this month announced his ambitious new venture.

Opening the doors to his very own gallery, aptly titled N.Smith Gallery, Smith kickstarts his exhibition schedule with Welcome, a group exhibition of works by artists in the gallery’s stable: Jordan Azcune, Tom Blake, Casey Chen, Neva Hosking, Kyra Mancktelow, Dylan Mooney, Thea Anamara Perkins, Rebecca Selleck, James Tylor and Kai Wasikowski.

“I’m incredibly humbled to be working with such amazing artists,” says Smith. “They all have ambitious exhibition plans and I can’t wait to give them that platform. Watch this space.”

Taking over 6 Napier Street, the former site of UNSW Art and Design’s Kudos Gallery, N.Smith Gallery joins Paddington’s thriving art district.

Following Welcome, N.Smith Gallery will present Shimmer, a solo show of works by artist Thea Anamara Perkins. Shimmer opens 8 June, for more information visit the N.Smith gallery website.
