Platform Gallery is another popular example of art boxes elevated to the deserving level of gallery.
Lining the subway passage between Degraves Street and Flinders Street Station, thousands of commuters are treated to a rotating program of exhibitions, all while on the way to their morning coffees.
Platform Gallery is hosting their next opening this Friday, June 7.
This latest exhibition will feature three artists, Jacqui Shelton’s Waves are Just Part of an Ocean, Laura Skerlj’s Mystic Terrain, and Darcey Bella Arnold’s Event Horizon.
Head down on Friday night – gallery openings make for ideal pre-drinks after all – between 6-8pm to mingle with like minded art-box enthusiasts, meet the artists and most likely be handed a free glass of champagne.
Those art boxes pull through.
