We recently met style guru and Gallery 2010 owner, Sam Preston.
For those who haven’t heard of Gallery 2010, it is a contemporary gallery in a leafy Surry Hills garage. Supporting emerging artists, Gallery 2010 is non –profit and curator-run.
Gallery 2010 is loved by many Posse fans and we had the pleasure of meeting Sam to find out which places she loves and recommends from around the world.
Here’s what she has to say…..
If you love to wine and dine cafe style, then the Revolver in Annandale will be your cup of tea.. Literally! In Sam’s opinion it is ‘the best café in Sydney, [which] ticks all the boxes’ – this is quite a claim! Revolver has some expectations to live up to!
A coffee lover, Sam insists Corduroy, in Surry Hills is the place to go for some caffeination! Corduroy use Little Marionette coffee which is deliciously smooth. Sam used to live near the Little Marionette Roastery in Annandale, but the Corduroy is now the closest purveyor.
Sailor’s Thai in The Rocks, Sydney is a family favourite or Sam. Her father has been visiting Sailor’s Thai for years, and has collected each of David Thompson’s cookbooks. If you are lucky enough to be seated on the balcony in summer you will be overlooking one of the most magical landscapes in the world – Sydney Harbor.
As a former resident of France, Sam has had the privilege of living a Parisian dream. Palais de Tokyo is one of Sam’s favourite places in Paris – a modern and contemporary art museum by the Seine. As many museums do, the store within the Palais is amazing; designed by Andre it’s called Black Block.
Mistress Jerry. Defined by Gardels Bar as Sailor Jerry spiced rum, honey & ginger syrup, lime juice & raspberry puree…. Need a drink? This is just one of the signature cocktails you could enjoy at Gardels Bar in Surry Hills.
So there you have it, five fabulous recommendations from an innovative, influential art curator. Follow Sam on Posse now. If you haven’t already, check out Gallery 2010’s Atomic Wings exhibition by Dion Horstmans.
