'We feel it's fair when visitors to the gallery ask, where did you come from?'. Theo and Soula are aiming to create an exceptional Australian gallery and workshop and so it makes alot of sense that their new community, gallery visitors, patrons, workshop participants, and new artists, ask this question.
