Introducing Ask a Curator
Hi, I’m Kelly - the owner and curator of Platform Gallery, a successful commercial gallery in the Blue Mountains, 90 minutes outside of Sydney. I work with individual artists to create monthly exhibitions, and also with the dozens of artisans and makers who supply work for the gallery store.
My favourite part of what I do is working one-on-one with the artists and makers, from the initial studio visit, to workshopping exhibition ideas, to providing advice about how to manage the business side of their creative practice – things like invoicing, pricing their work and marketing themselves.
If you’ve ever wanted to know the best way to approach a gallery or retail store, or are stuck with your creative business idea, or even just wanted to know what a curator was thinking – ask away. I can’t speak for all curators, but I can tell you what I’m thinking, based on my many years of working with artists and other creatives.
