Gay is personally invited to attend on the evening of the 27th September the exclusive Private View of The Turner Prize 2019.

Gay has found in her experience that Sculpture, Engineering and Architecture often crossover such as in The Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao by Frank O. Gehry. This lead her to take the creative ideas from her sculptures and Art to pursue study in Architecture, completing a BA (Hons) Architectural interior Design and onto a Masters MA 3D Design.
Gay has been part of many mixed Exhibitions and successfully displayed her own Solo Shows/Exhibitions giving her experience and first hand knowledge in overcoming the complexaties of displaying 2D and 3D items, sometimes with difficult materials, reflection and lighting aspects. Knowing also what it is to be the Artist entering the exhibition and display arena, this led on to involement and extensive research into the Curatorial role; add to this Gay's Design, Access and Architectural expertise and knowledge places her in a unique position to advise both by involement and also a consultancy role. To engage Gay in an Architectural, Design, Curatorial consultancy roll please contact her directly.

Completed Designs for a church and an Art Gallery. The church also involved Fundamental Christian religious architectural positioning and arrangements.The Art Gallery also involved extensive specialized research and understanding of Curatorial and Access aspects. Also the Artist to Curator to Architect crossover of views and requirements.

'Gay said ' All aspects of Disabled Access are very important to me. Starting from before I was disabled by being involved in Design and Architecture, also the Tate Britian's exceptional research. Then becoming one of the unseen disabled myself, to eventually using wheelchairs as well as all types of disability equipment. This has given me added exceptional knowledge and the experience by way of trying out and using the Architectural, curatorial display and Design Disability aspects of buildings, wayfinding and exhibitions. I know what will work and what will not!
