Thank you to the Geelong Advertiser and GT Magazine for their exquisite feature, Curating a New Life, published Nov 11, 2023.

Cam Ward captured the story of the origins of Queenscliff Gallery superbly after a lovely long chat with directors Soula and Theo Mantalvanos earlier this year during Michael Leunig’s Don’t Give Up exhibition.

“We plucked ourselves out of life and went to Tassie to figure it out.”

Read the full story to learn more about what prompted the curation of a whole new life away from Soula and Theo’s hometown of Collingwood.
