“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.”

“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.”

“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….”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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!!'”

“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.”

“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.”
