Dawe Gallery is a small art gallery located on the east side of Cranmer Park. It was designed to house the artwork of Gabriel Dawe, an artist who focuses on light and color. The Dawe Gallery was designed in order to create two unique lighting conditions in each gallery space. One space features a window that runs the length of the southwest wall and the top of the southeast wall to allow direct sunlight to interact with the work in the space. The other space was designed with channel glass and incorporates a large overhanging roof for a gallery space with more ambient lighting conditions. These two different spaces allow for two different experiences when viewing Dawe’s artwork.
