How does converting an empty shop space into a pop up gallery for three months sound to you? Sounds like something we might see on the CBD streets of Melbourne or Sydney, maybe even New York. How about Burnie?
With the operational hiatus of the Burnie Regional Gallery for renovations as part of the new cultural precinct, Business Northwest wanted to create a space where art could still be enjoyed and practised. Drawing from our experience with the Renew Burnie program, we felt an opportunity might exist to use one of the empty shop spaces as a gallery space. Happily, Ten Days on The Island had a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition looking for a home – a match made in heaven! The Burnie City Council came on board to help secure the property for a three month period, and cover the fit outs needed to bring this space to a quality proposition. Contemporary Arts/Research, also working in the unique micro gallery space, were able to complete the team to transform the old Dick Smith building, into a quality art space.

Steel & Water
5 -24 April 2022 10am – 5pm
Curated by Scott Campbell from Contemporary Arts/Research
We are delighted to have a wide solo exhibition of new works by accomplished abstract painter Michael Muruste. Steel & Water takes a deep look at the relationship between our dedicated industrial port and the ever-changing waters of the Bass Strait.
Michael has been working on this extended series right here in Burnie for the last two years. An artist focussing on one subject for an extended period of time always produces results. Steel & Water shows how important the documentary side of visual arts actually is.
Represented by Colville Gallery in Hobart, Michael’s works are held in numerous public collections including TMAG, Charles Darwin University and our own Burnie Regional Art Gallery’s permanent collection. Michael’s paintings talk about the interplay of Industry and the Aquatic, Geometry and the Organic, The Resolved and the Right Now. Michael is broadly recognised as an accomplished and highly regarded painter. His works are deeply fathomed but bright and playful.
The exhibition opens on the 4th of April and continues until April 24th.
