Renewal – Post Industrial Design

Some of you may recall the team from Post Industrial Design and the great little shop they had a for a few years in Church St Richmond Vic. Back then they sold a stunning range of one off home wares, quirky design pieces and Artworks of all kinds.

Jos, checking out the soon to be refurbished space.

Jos and Mary Van Hulsen have decided to bring back some of the old stores charm, eclectic and quirky artistic goods to entice a whole new range of arts and decorative craft devotees along the way, no doubt many of the older devotees will be there in force too.

Based in Barkly St West Footscray the intrepid duo are just starting to refurbish a 1 1/2  sized shop space to be a mecca for those wanting the artistic, well crafted and locally produced items. It will also boast a small exhibition space which at this stage will be a rental space.

Mary said, “It’s time to revive the shop, and now it’s closer to home we will have more time to create objects, source artefacts, encourage local artisans and the like to be a part of what is fast becoming an arts region on it’s own.”

Jos Van Hulsen is a contemporary artist of some repute with a number of exquiste exhibitions to his credit, a placing in the Helen Lempriere sculpture exhibition a few years back and an exhibitor as part of the Lorne Foreshore Sculpture show in 2009. His commissions for artistic gates and restaurant interiors can be seen far and wide.

If you produce “Artefacts” in the western suburban region of Melbourne Victoria, then consider contacting them via their website and have a chat to see if they can take on your works (Hey you can only ask!)

We wish them well in their endeavour and hope the region boasts as many Art Buyers as it does Art Producers.
