Slave to art

Gambia Castle is the name of a new gallery to open in Auckland sometime early in 2007. The name is taken from a slave ship stolen by the pirate George Lowther. If you believe everything you read in Wikipedia, check out the back story. One good omen. When Lowther signed the crew of the Gambia Castle up for the pirate life, he changed the name of the ship to Delivery. You can check out the pleasantly erratic Gambia Castle blog here.
