“The exhibition was a huge success!  The gallery worked very well and it was a pleasure spending the week there.”
Leonie Watson, March 2020

“Our group exhibition at Percolator went very well. The gallery space and location was excellent for our purposes. Natalie was fantastic in all our communications giving helpful and timely advice and information as needed.”
Lou Gilbert, November 2019

“We really enjoyed exhibiting at Percolator. You’ve got a great set up.”
Kelly Southee & Alan Morrison, October 2019

“Just a quick thank you to Natalie Pelusi and Percolator Gallery for the opportunity to show my art recently. Not only was Natalie informative and professional, but also encouraging which meant a lot. The Opening Night was a great success with approx 130 in attendance and over half of the works were sold (with several commissions requested as well).
The Gallery was the perfect size and a fantastic space to show varying sizes of drawings and paintings and I feel extremely lucky to have had my first true solo exhibition at Percolator Gallery – including their support. It also gave me a chance to meet with some of the current artists in the area as well as those who have/had exhibited their works at the gallery, recently.
I wish all of the artists luck and best wishes for their shows and thoroughly recommend this gallery to those thinking about exhibiting in the future. I also encourage everyone to get along and support our local artists who are producing some really beautiful works.”
Mark Andrews, September 2019

“It was my pleasure to lease Percolator for an entire month for the second year in a row. The gallery provides a perfect opportunity for artists to present their work in a professional gallery setting. Natalie, the Gallery Manager,  is warm and generous with her support from the supply of a detailed list of publicity contacts to prompt responses to any queries throughout the duration of the show.
A heartfelt thanks to everyone at Percolator Gallery for a very successful exhibition. I highly recommend artists to take advantage of this opportunity. It was worth every penny of my investment.”
Jacinta Stewart, August 2019

“Percolator Gallery is a perfect venue for artists of all levels needing a space to hold an exhibition. The gallery is in tip top shape and I was pleased with the clean painted walls, the lighting in the gallery and overall the gallery was super clean.  Helena, as a fellow artist, thank you for making this a viable option for all artists. With the beautiful weather, the foot traffic was substantial. People were out and about in full force.”
Tracy L Spalding, July 2019

“The gallery spaces work well. Having a variety of room sizes lends itself to different size works and allows a variety of themes or techniques to be grouped together and not look out of place. The character of the building gives a more intimate feel and is inviting for those passing. All facilities are provided. This is the second time we have had an exhibition here. It’s a very easy gallery to manage and we’ll certainly consider hiring it again.”
Maggie Cross, July 2019

“A well located gallery which suits artists and the public very well.”
John Blackley, June 2019

“It is such a lovely place to exhibit and I was delighted with the way my pieces looked alongside the paintings.”
Roshni Senapati, April 2019

“It’s been a super experience, from beginning to end.”
Sharmila Nezovic, March 2019

“The Percolator Gallery is a light filled flexible space with quality lighting and hanging facilities. The director and staff are very helpful and easy to work with. I enjoyed the freedom to curate my own space, organise a couple of events and meet visitors to the exhibition.”
Kerry Holland, November 2018

“I have exhibited a few times at the Percolator gallery now… 2 solos and 2 group exhibitions…  The venue is great but the staff make it!!!  Not only always friendly and helpful but true professionals.”
Diane McDonald, October 2018

“I love the gallery and it’s location.  I would recommend and have recommended to everyone.”
Janet Farley, October 2018

“I had a wonderful exhibition at Percolator Gallery. A great gallery space to showcase your work. Thank you to Natalie for her organisation on making it so easy.”
Lynne Lyons, October 2018

“Huge thanks to Natalie at Percolator Gallery for all her help to ensure the MAANZ Queensland Branch Mosaic Exhibition 2018 ran smoothly. Percolator Gallery at Paddington, provided a beautiful space to showcase 54 mosaic artworks, wall hung and sculptures on pedestals, with ease. The Friday evening event was packed out with approx 128 visitors to the Exhibition and the kitchen facilities and front deck and garden space were perfect. We had many comments on our window display and appreciated the mail outs from Percolator Gallery which brought many visitors to the Gallery. I would recommend Percolator Gallery for artists wishing to sell and showcase their artworks. Thanks again.”
Sandy Robertson, September 2018

“Highly recommended. A fantastic, well maintained space in an artistic, up market area. Excellent service as well.”
Sof Georgiou, September 2018

“Booking Percolator Gallery was a big deal for the Queensland Camera Group.  We had used a different gallery previously but decided we needed a space that had its own mailing list, better street exposure and was located in an area known for art and collectables.  Our decision turned out to be genius.  Our exhibition exceeded our expectations and in no small part this was due to Percolator.  The gallery itself received rave reviews and we received many inquiries from other visiting artists.  You were so easy to work with, and made things simple.  We will be back in two years’ time.”
Anne Pappalardo, July 2018

“I had such a fabulous time holding my first exhibition with Percolator Gallery.  Not only is the venue in a great position, but everything was so easy.  Natalie answered all questions quickly and as an ‘exhibition newbie’, no questions I asked were considered too silly 🙂   I would definitely recommend Percolator for the ease and convenience.”
Belinda Scott, June 2018

“It was a privilege and a pleasure for Alberto and I to hang our Immersion exhibition at Percolator.  The Gallery is warm and inviting and provides a well lit, creative hanging space with a village atmosphere. We have had wonderful feedback from our guests about the gallery and our collections, which has flowed on to us through the sales of much of our work.  Thank you Natalie and Helena for making this space available to emerging artists and for a fantastic Percolator experience.”
Kate Kelly-Duke, June 2018

“Percolator Gallery is a fantastic exhibition space, and I plan to apply for further exhibitions there.”
Gayle Reichelt, May 2018

“Thanks Helena and Natalie for all your support prior to and during my solo exhibition in November ’17. The gallery spaces worked really well for me, the location on Latrobe Terrace was ideal, lots of passers-by came in to have a look. I am pleased with the number of works sold and plan to hold another solo at Percolator in the near future.”
Ilse Buttiens, November 2017

“Another wonderful experience that I plan to repeat. Such a lovely space, roomy and atmospheric, with good passing traffic for walk-ins.”
Anne-Louise Ciel, October 2017

“The Escape Exhibition at Percolator Gallery finished on Sunday and we had some great success! I sold 7 pieces and have 6 commission requests! So grateful and blessed.”
Jane Ericksen, April 2017

“A quaint post war Californian homestead converted to a small gallery with rustic charm. Hosting a self service kitchen, storage facilities, ample wall space and easy use hanging system with sufficient lighting. It’s an ideal exhibition space for the emerging and budget conscience artist wanting to deliver a warm and personal viewing experience as well as art collectors wanting something special and uniquely original.”
Damien Pasquale, November 2016

“Great gallery space. Good location. Definitely recommend Percolator Gallery.”
Marion Cornwell, November 2016

“We hired the gallery for a week to hold my first solo exhibition. The whole experience went so well, from the initial booking to the final part of the show. Natalie and Helena were both so helpful, friendly and professional. I recommend Percolator Gallery and I will definitely be back. Thank you.”
Diane McDonald, October 2016

“It was an amazing experience. Really happy with the sales but more so with all the support given, the number of people who called in, and all the lovely comments. I’m inspired….”
Clare Green, June 2016

“I was very happy with the response to my paintings and also the sales!“
Louise Thomas, December 2015

“We really loved Percolator and we are sad it is all over.  Our exhibition was a great success for us, with good sales and great traffic through the show.”
Lance Boucaut, September 2015

“My, this is a lovely gallery and I’m really enjoying being here and talking to everyone about my art.  There is the most wonderful light in Percolator Gallery and I highly recommend it as an exhibition space.”
Anne-Louise Ciel, September 2015

“This was my second time exhibiting with Percolator Gallery and it was once again such an easy, hassle free experience. The gallery staff were super friendly and helpful, both Natalie and Helena popped in to check on how I was going. The floors of the gallery have recently been repolished which gave the space a great fresh look and once my work was up it all just looked fantastic. I sold a lot of work and had a really successful week. Thanks Percolator Gallery!”
Diana Miller, August 2015

“I absolutely love this quaint gallery. The typically Brisbane building really suits my work. The Percolator emailouts really worked for my show. I have also had many pop in from my letterbox drops. I am happy as a lark. Thanks Percolator.”
Kathy Duronio, May 2015

“I would like to take this opportunity to say that the quality of service by Percolator Gallery since our first contact over a year ago has been highly impressive. Every aspect of your service has been beyond reproach.  As an artist who has exhibited on many occasions, I felt this experience to be the most professional and stress-free. I was impressed by the high standard and efficiency of Helena and Catherine’s approach to running the gallery.  I would like to say thank you and I hope we can work together again in the future.”
Jessica, February 2014

“This is to let you know that our show went well, and to thank you for all your help. You and Helena have made the whole experience one to remember fondly. Sales were moderate, but its not all about the money, hey? I think we sold 9 paintings, 3 drawings and 3 prints. The paintings were mostly of the small, less expensive variety. The opening was ‘chockers’ and to walk between the front door and the kitchen required some gentle force. We used my small busking amp for the speeches. Once again thanks, as they say ‘its bin a pleasure doing business with you!!'”
Ray, May 2012

“Percolator Gallery hosted my solo exhibition ‘Surface Tension’ in May 2012.  The gallery is full of surprises. Step inside this quaint cottage, and you suddenly find yourself in a modern gallery space, perfectly appointed to host any exhibition.  Compact yet somehow roomy, Percolator retains the warm, welcoming feel so often missing from many art gallery spaces.  Percolator boasts high visibility, with its large display window offering artists maximum exposure. On top of that, its prime position on Paddington’s bustling cafe strip ensures visitors are drawn into the gallery every day.  The staff could not have been more helpful or supportive. In short, I would not hesitate in recommending Percolator Gallery to other artists.”
Anthony, May 2012

“Initially we thought the gallery size might be too small but it turned out to be a lovely space with good exposure to passers by.  Lots more people visited the show than I had expected. The gallery is very welcoming and has easy access – unlike some.  I recommend this gallery to anyone wanting to have a show.”
Sue, May 2011

“I want to thank you for all of your help and support during my recent solo exhibition at Percolator Gallery.  The whole experience was a very positive one for me and I really appreciate the opportunity my exhibition at your gallery has afforded me to further my art career.  The venue itself is a very pleasant and well presented space and displaying my work there set it off to best effect. The gallery is well lit; the display window is attractive and definitely draws attention from the street.  The process of exhibiting with you was well-organised with just the right balance of input and autonomy. The gallery is equipped with everything necessary to conduct a professional exhibition and opening and I appreciated your well planned contract and the information and processes you have set in place regarding invitations and other organisational issues that make it easy to put on a professional exhibition.  You and your gallery are well respected in the Brisbane art community and there is no doubt that this has been a contributing factor in the success of my exhibition.  I felt very supported by you and your staff and I would (and have) highly recommend your gallery to other artists looking for a space to hire. I wish you all the best for the continuation of the success of Percolator and your own artistic endeavours and look forward to working with you again in the future.”
Ann, July 2009

“Not a better gallery would you find… The Australia Tibet Council presented an exhibition to mark 50 years of Hope, Courage and Survival of the Tibetan people.  Percolator Gallery was perfect as a partner in assisting us to present the exhibition. Catherine was exceptionally helpful and professional and the gallery setting was a perfect backdrop for the photos. The warm Queenslander cottage setting with polished timber floors and white walls highlighted the rich Tibetan cultural items and displayed the photographic story of Tibet to perfection. Many thanks to Catherine for her help and assistance in staging the exhibition.”
The Australia Tibet Council, June 2009

“I held my second solo exhibition at Percolator Gallery in June 2009 and found it to be a great venue for emerging artists.  The managers were helpful and informative, and the position and the appearance of the gallery attracts people.  It’s a light-filled and flexible space and I would recommend it.”
Victoria, June 2009
