Unity, Connection and Innovative forms
INGUZ GALLERY IS
Inguz gallery is a 'pop up' style commercial exhibition initiative based in Melbourne. We look for space and then either email out an artist callout, or select from our growing list of artists. Subscribe below to receive news and artist callouts.
MEANING / VISION
INGUZ is a Nordic rune, meaning dynamic harmony and it refers to “a period of an isolation or separation in order to create a space where the process of transformation into higher states of being can occur.” * It’s a rune of gestation and internal growth.
So in the spirt of INGUZ and in the wake of COVID-19, after a period of isolation, we aim to facilitate connection to the arts and inspire creativity. Our vision is to bring about unity, connection and innovation through a range of 'pop up' exhibitions and progressive themes.
WHERE WE STARTED
Our curatorships + gallery journey began in Castlemaine. Four enthusiast art lovers combined energies and created Upstairs 22 Gallery. During its time we curated eight exhibitions and several musical performances. The project showcased a diverse range of talented regional and metropolitan artists.
All of the exhibitions / musical performances held at Upstairs 22 Gallery are still listed below and will give you a flavour of our professional practice and the standards we are committed to.

Upstairs 22 Gallery space in Castlemaine has now closed and we say goodbye to co-directors, Sherree Gallagher and Michael Gray, who helped create a fantastic dynamic exhibition space.
