Gallery259 October Update

As of Monday the 10th of October at approximately 1.15am in the morning, Gallery259 shut the physical doors to its location in Maungatapere New Zealand and began metamorphosing into a mobile entity.

Gallery259 Analogue Resistance Mag Vol. 4

It took a year, mostly because I had forgotten it existed and was nearly finished, but after a cool day printing lith prints at gallery259 yesterday I was excited to get back behind the computer.

In both these spaces […]

Lith Printing

Lith Printing

Several years ago I discovered lith printing when getting an armload of books on photography out from the local library.

Fridays….& Looking For A Gallery259 Partner

I don’t know what your life is like, but mine seems like there is never enough time to do what I have to do, without even approaching the subject of what I want to do. And so Friday arrives………….whew! Crossing duties is done at school, my last paid work commitment………..and there stretching in front of […]

The Times They Are A Changin’

The Times They Are A Changin’

When Gallery259 was originally conceived, the idea was to be a purely photographic gallery. And be a working gallery.Here are some of the ideas that were behind that beginning. Yes some of them have changed, but some are at the core of what Gallery259 is all about. In brief…. Art that was accessible to people […]
