After 10 wonderful years in Chippendale, the Directors of Galerie pompom, George Adams and Samantha Ferris, have decided to close the gallery. Since opening in 2012 Galerie pompom has presented more than 160 exhibitions and we have been privileged to exhibit the works of more than 200 Australian and international artists. We sincerely thank the artists, gallery personnel, and all who have engaged with our program. Our archive will remain on the website for the review of our presentations and published videos. Please don't hesitate to email if you have any enquiries.

It’s been a fantastic ride - thanks for the good times.
