We opened the Elms Gallery in September of 2018 with the goal of establishing a hub for creativity and community engagement by collaborating with well-aligned emerging and mid-career Australian artists on exhibitions and workshops. Located in the heart of Surry Hills, our gallery is a beautifully renovated space that retains its inherent character with original features including masonry walls and an exposed raked ceiling, while the large north-facing windows and a south-facing patio provide ample natural light.
We simply could not wait to begin programming and are thrilled to announce our first exhibition with Danielle Cross. Please join us for the opening night on Thursday, 20th of June, where Danielle will be presenting her latest work — PLATONIC PROVOCATEUR.
When: 20th June 2019 / 6 - 8 pm
Where: Elms / 393 Crown Street, Surry Hills
Please RSVP by 13th June and be sure to sign up for our newsletter to receive further information.
Massive thanks to our beautiful sponsor:
About Danielle X
Sydney-based Danielle Cross is a multi-faceted visual artist with a repertoire that stretches from painting to photography.
Her abstract work embodies movement & elusive compositions whereas her photography merges imagery into abstract forms - where waves & landscapes look they were created using brushstrokes rather than through a camera lens.
Art is about connection - connecting with the artwork, the artist & a moment in time.
