Gallery installs hi-tech lighting

AT least two hours of work goes into creating the perfect lighting for each exhibition, so a decent system is paramount.

Warwick Art Gallery will look its best for next week’s Fantastic Fabrics exhibition after it had a new lighting system installed this week.

Gallery director Karina Devine told the Daily News yesterday that work on the lights was progressing in record time.

The previous lighting was about 20 years old and as each light failed, the gallery was unable to replace it.

On a tracking system the gallery has 45 lights which all need to be taken down and positioned before every new exhibition.

Funded by the Federal Government’s Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program, the lights cost about $25,000 and Ms Devine said they would make a major difference in the gallery.

The gallery is going from strength to strength and is fully booked until 2012.

Ms Devine said she would look at the gallery’s space into the future and aimed to address the issues that surrounded having a space that’s “in demand”.
