Yesterday we received some very exciting news regarding one of Rebecca’s businesses! We are proud to announce that Traffic Jam Galleries has been selected as a Finalist for Australian Small Business Champion Awards 2015, in the category of Specialised Retail Small Business.
Traffic Jam Galleries (tjg) was established by Rebecca four years ago in 2011, and is run with family members and others to form the tjg team. The art gallery now represents 30-40 predominantly Australian artists in the contemporary genre with an emphasis on a mixed exhibition space alongside a monthly changing exhibition space. The business has grown into co-branding with various corporate partnerships, hosting events including artist dinners and weddings, all becoming a positive addition and valuable part of the local community and art industry.
The building was also designed by Rebecca, all false ceilings were removed and in some sections mortar on walls has been chiselled off to reveal brickwork to heighten the industrial minimalist feel and strengthen the presence of the art. For more images on the renovation of the building follow the link here.
It is great for the whole team to be acknowledged for their hard work in creating and nourishing the art gallery as an elite Australian small business.
On behalf of Rebecca, we would like to thank the tjg team, clients, partnerships and friends of the gallery for supporting the business.
Winner’s will be announced on Saturday the 18th of April, 2015, so….fingers crossed!
