At Colour Factory we have a range of industry professionals, gallery curators, fine artists, students, art writers and collectors coming through the door on a regular basis. Thus, the opportunity for exposure is great.

The exhibition committee will consist of three members of the Colour Factory team; director Phill Virgo, production manger Shane Waghorne, and artist and academic Linsey Gosper. A guest collector and an established practicing artist will also be part of the panel.
