NOTE: Dust Temple is presently being renovated. We’re enjoying the reveal…bit by bit!
Home to Hinge Gallery, fl.oz Espresso and Dangerous Adventures, Dust Temple is right at home in its industrial surrounds. Opened by architect John Wilson and his wife Isla, it’s an atmospheric open plan exhibition space with art pieces for sale and comfy lounge seating for relaxation.
With so few exhibition spaces available on the Coast, Hinge Gallery plays an important role promoting established local artists who may not be well known in their hometown.
The venue is community-based with a focus on exhibitions including charity events and art classes rather than sales. Hence, Dust Temple is supported, in part, by the espresso bar, fl.oz, at the front of the gallery.
Serving Fonzie Abbott roasters’ coffee in takeaway eco cups, there’s also a daily cake (a Banana Cake when we visited). With a commercial kitchen on the plans, this is an amazing venue which is widening its facilities and reach.
I take my coffee on a walk through the gallery. Exciting and thought provoking, the art pieces beg to be photographed. Industrial and raw it may be, but Dust Temple is well worth a visit. There’s nowhere else quite like it.
