Newcastle House of Photography
Property Donor: PDJH Holdings Ltd
202 King St Newcastle
Update August 2011: Gallery Raw has closed doors on the King St premises. In 12 months in the space they produced 10 exhibitions of the work of 20 local photographers, attracting more than 2,500 visitors into the city to view the work. The property owner is commencing a redevelopment of the site.
Newcastle House of Photography is a meeting place for anyone interested in art photography. Be that pros or amateurs, students or enthusiasts.
Gallery Raw operated from January – November 2009 as one of the first Renew Newcastle projects. They had to vacate their GPT owned shopfront in the mall to make way for a commercial tenant, and have been keen to set up in a new space since then.
In June 2010, Gallery Raw has re-opened in a new space just opposite the Greater Union Tower Cinemas. The new shopfront on King St is a little smaller than their first site, but they aren’t short on ideas on how to use the space:
Part of the space will be used to hang exhibition prints & show case local talent as either individual photographers or group works (such as TAFE, Uni or flickr). The emphasis will be on art photography as opposed to landscape, commercial or wedding photography. We don’t want to take away from or compete with established businesses but rather offer an opportunity to show case free and creative work of any one willing to strut their stuff.
We would also like to run work shops on all sorts of topics related to photography and printing (such as Photoshop, printing or lighting etc). The size of the space available will also allow us to rent out studio space suitable for group or commercial shoots.
Last but not least we would like to become a centre for IT knowledge & excellence in photography and photo printing. Sharing information and skills is an important aspect of our Newcastle House of Photography and Gallery RAW.
Gallery Opening Hours: Thurs – Sat 10am – 4pm or by appointment 0401 614 132
