Well we finally did it! After almost 5 years in the gallery we finally found the perfect new space to grow and expand. Located on the corner of Ipswich Road and St Kilda Place in Annerley the stunning heritage listed Art Deco building is the perfect space for our custom framing studio.
Previously a photographic studio the space was pretty much ready to step right in. High ceilings with exposed timber and sweeping glass windows the space feels open and inviting. We have also almost tripled our space. This is great news as it will make our framing processes smoother and more efficient. There is nothing worse than clutter in a conservation studio.
Although it may not seem like it at first there are many parking options including on street parking in St Kilda place, off street parking at the rear of the building (exclusive for clients of ARTIS PURA) and if you still get stuck there is always parking in adjacent streets in and around the area. We have noticed that Monday is an awesome day to come in as the neighbouring businesses are closed. More parking for us.
With all this space we have so many new and exciting projects on the horizon. All of which are aimed at supporting and promoting the arts in Brisbane and the wider community. We also have space for stock. You can now come in and browse and purchase unique ready made frames, antiques, original art, mirrors, prints, DIY and art hanging systems . All this just in time for Christmas.
We look forward to seeing you all in our new space. This really is a new beginning for ARTIS PURA. Those who have been in to see our new studio have been blown away. Pop in and say hi! We even have enough room for people to sit and chat about art and creative collaboration.
