Meet Debbie Gallulo, our first Pro Shop resident artist

We are pleased to introduce you to our first resident artist for the Sample Coffee Art Program: local neighbour, customer and photographer Debbie Gallulo.

We will celebrate this with a friendly gathering on Friday 31st January, from 5.30 to 7pm at the Sample Coffee Pro Shop in St Peters. There will be cold brew, local beer and a few house-made nibbles — a rare chance to enjoy our beautiful cafe space in the evening! The party will keep going at Willie the Boatman until 9 pm, where beers and truck food will be served.

If you wish to be part of this, please register here and join us for some good times.

What is the Sample Coffee Art Program?

This is a program that will use our now empty walls at the Pro Shop to showcase different emerging local artists, rotating every 3 months. We came up with this after suddenly having to say goodbye to the beautiful illustrations by Wendy Loefler, which filled our space since we opened our doors in 2015.

EMERGING ARTISTS CALL 👩‍🎨📷: Sample Coffee wants you! For the last 5 years, we’ve been so lucky to hold a few amazing large-format artworks by Wendy Loefler. Her family is now taking them from the Pro Shop to brighten up another space. This news has come ice-cold, as this art has somehow become part of who we are. We are really going to miss it! But from every hiccup, there is an opportunity to create something new. We are super stoked to offer our empty walls to local emerging artists who want to show their work to the diverse people who visit our space every day. Ideally, we are looking for large format pieces that connect with the Sample spirit: connection nature and people, honouring the little things and calling to slow down and appreciate every single moment. This will be a rotating program, turning the Pro Shop into an inspiring space that offers the opportunity to honour the creative community around us. If you are interested or know anyone who would be, tag them, share it or send us a DM! 🙋‍♀️ Spread the word and help us make this space part of everyone.
