In July 2014 Sarah K is opening an annexe of Gallery Oh at Mr Kitly in Melbourne. Annexe Oh is being launched with a retrospective exhibition of all the works that have been shown at Gallery Oh since it opened. This special launch event presents a unique chance to view work made especially for Gallery Oh by leading international designers and artists.

In March 2012 Sarah K opened Gallery Oh in Sydney. Gallery Oh is a micro gallery - a clear perspex box mounted to a corner of a room and customised to accommodate a clumsily placed structural post  - it unceremoniously inhabits a corner space of Megan Morton’s Studio + School in Roseberry, Sydney (also home to Kitchen by Mike + Koskela)

The premise is simple: I invite one work (or more if it can fit) by one designer, to be shown for a minimum period of 2 months… this usually runs longer. I offer the dimensions and leave it to the designer to create something specifically or to make some existing piece work in the small space. On the whole, in response, the designers have created works especially for Gallery Oh.
