Barefoot Gallery serves as a platform for artists, musicians, poets, and filmmakers
The Colombo Gallery was begun by Barbara Sansoni in 1967 and had its home in Anderson Road in a building designed by Ulrik Plesner. The Colombo Gallery became Gallery 706 and that became the BAREFOOT GALLERY in the mid-nineties, which serves as a platform for artists, musicians, poets, and filmmakers in Colombo.
If One Thing Matters…..
an exhibition of paintings by Elizabeth Porter from 29 September – 22 October 2017.
Elizabeth Porter is a graduate of the Royal College of Art London. In a series of oil paintings painted on gold leaf circular panels. She shows us a world where small animals encounter the detritus of the manmade: butterflies & plastic bottles; Loris and rusty old weapons; squirrels climbing a fraying rope; a bird on a tangle of wire. The images call to mind religious icons and ask us to revaluate the things we consider insignificant, as they advocate the transitory, the neglected, the fragile, the overlooked, and ignored. This is her first solo show in Colombo.
