Saint Cloche Gallery

ABOUT

Saint Cloche Gallery is a contemporary art gallery and concept space in Sydney’s Paddington with a mission to support the work of established artists, whilst also providing a nurturing platform to champion fresh talent and present their ideas to the world.

For emerging, evolving and mid-career artists, ceramicists, sculptors and photographers it’s a non-traditional, opportunity to present their work to new audiences in a reformist space elevated through design. The gallery’s advocacy is multi-dimensional promotion across many platforms including print, digital and social media.

The schedule of shows is carefully curated by the gallery director Kitty Clark, or by invited guest curators on occasion. While Saint Cloche Gallery is not an artist run space, we do accept submissions from artists who are interested in exhibiting their work in one of our curated solo or group exhibitions. Saint Cloche Gallery now also selectively represents a small stable of emerging artists.

“We as a gallery believe in the Sydney art scene and want to use our resources and experience to promote what our local scene has to offer. Saint Cloche is by design, built to make the commercial space less intimidating to young and new collectors.”
– Founder, Kitty Clark.

Being one of only a few galleries in East Sydney that gives opportunity to emerging artists has proven to be an asset, and Founder/Director, Kitty Clark has swiftly cultivated a new clientele of collectors who have an eager eye and appetite for her ‘reveal’. Kitty’s judicious curation is becoming well-renowned, for being exhibited in the most innovative, elevated picture-hangs and installations.

Saint Cloche is a dynamic gallery with diverse and high-calibre exhibitions changing fortnightly and is at the epicentre of a growing community of like-minded creatives, promoting art, culture and contemporary thinking.

The Gallery is also a creative concept space selectively available for exhibitions, installations, collaborations, workshops and events that share in the gallery’s signature style and aesthetic.

The production and scheduling of shows is carefully curated by Kitty, or by Guest Curators invited on occasion to collaborate on the exhibitions. While Saint Cloche Gallery is not an artist-run space, accept submissions are accepted from artists who are interested in exhibiting their work in one of the curated solo or group exhibitions. Saint Cloche Gallery exclusively represents a small, select group of emerging artists that connect with the gallery’s particular style and aesthetic.


SAINT CLOCHE UPSTAIRS

After 4 years of operation as one of Sydney’s most exciting galleries and creative venues, Saint Cloche Gallery is excited to announce our physical expansion to offer a project space onsite. ‘Saint Cloche Upstairs’, situated literally just upstairs from the original gallery, provides an alternative exhibition space for more intimate shows. Offering the same clean and minimalist aesthetic for which Saint Cloche Gallery is known, the upstairs gallery flows through to a sundrenched outdoor terrace with views across the Paddington district – perfect for opening receptions.

When not in use as a project space for a particular show, ‘Saint Cloche Upstairs’ will host the full and diverse Saint Cloche Gallery stockroom, allowing an easier means of perusing works from previous shows and available works.

SUBMISSIONS

Saint Cloche Gallery does accept artist submissions. To be considered, artists are asked to provide a sampling of their current works as well as short form bio including any key accomplishments and an artist statement for the works you are looking to show. We are also interested to hear why you think your works would be a good match for our gallery!

For submissions, please email info[at]saintcloche.com
