The FIRST Doorknob Award of Excellence
We are very excited to announce that the first award goes to Steve Chambers and the Laundromat Art Project Space [LAPS] in Tauranga.
This rare gem among Tauranga's art galleries truly deserves this award. We just love this place.
It's a gallery where you can go and see contemporary art that is innovative and inspiring but also at times controversial and challenging. However it's not an intimidating kind of gallery where you feel a little out of place if you don't know much about art. Quite the opposite. It's an open and friendly environment where you feel instantly comfortable. Steve makes you feel welcome as soon as you walk in and will happily talk about the artwork on show or have a chat with you about art and ideas and all things exciting.
Also located at the Laundromat Art Project Space is the Arthub providing artists studio space for lease which makes LAPS even more special. Offering so much for the local art community it creates a uniquely creative atmosphere which leaves you excited and inspired every time you visit.
So there you go, this is why we think The Laundromat Art Project Space on 92 Second Ave deserves this award because it's simply
warm and woolly regards
