District welcomes Magnet Image

By Karina Schulz Wharwood

Social enterprise Magnet Galleries opened up a second location last month at The District Docklands.

Magnet joins other galleries such as Dark Horse Experiment in The District’s new art wing.

Working with both established and emerging local photographers, the not-for-profit enterprise uses photography as a tool for teaching and interpreting the world through a lens.

Founder Michael Silver said: “We want to preserve and celebrate the best of Australian photography and encourage the art.”

“Over the years, the craft has been diminished and we want to revive its importance.”

Constantly changing, the gallery offers a space for permanent or temporary exhibitions, poetry readings and a place to have a quiet coffee.

“Magnet is designed for people to share their knowledge, experience and be able to gain new insights and expertise,” Mr Silver said.
