The Main Gallery is an initiative of Ozlem Yeni, a visual artist with a PhD in stage design who enjoyed eighteen years as an academic in Dokuz Eylul University in Turkey and as a lecturer in performing arts before moving to Australia in 2016. The decision to move on was prompted by a decision to further an artistic practice that has seen solo and group exhibitions across Australia and around the world and with more than 20 years of varied professional experience in the art world, Ozlem launches her new art gallery in the heart of Adelaide with the express purpose of furthering her love of art and her passion for both promoting and collaborating with a diverse art community both locally and internationally.
The gallery name ‘The Main Gallery’ derives from the idea of entering any museum or gallery for the first time. To enter a gallery is the beginning of a journey and I want to engender the sense of adventure and excitement that will follow as you enter the main room and progress through the visual and visceral experience of imaginative discovery that awaits you. This latest chapter in my personal artistic journey reflects the lifelong dream of not only being an artist but of opening an art gallery that will create a feeling of community and a shared artistic aesthetic. The Main Gallery is the first art gallery launched by a Turkish artist in Australia. I believe in these challenging times, it is important to nurture the idea of hope as well as providing the physical means through which local, national and international artists can exhibit their work. Our modern style art gallery offers 138 sqm of exhibition wall space divided into three Gallery sections of varying sizes. We can accommodate group shows, as well as individual exhibitions and events.
