Halinka Orszulok’s latest exhibition opened at Flinders Street Gallery a couple of weeks ago. This series of eerie night time landscapes are painted from photographs taken around her home town on the South Coast. There is a sense of irony that these public spaces are lit for safety, yet the lights seem to deepen the […]
Maybe we’re just not as hip as we’d hoped, but when we read that Sweets Workshop was putting on a show of Gocco prints we had no idea what the hell that meant. If you’re thinking something similar, let us now enlighten you via the words of Sweets Workshop…
Walking into MOP to explore Tim Schultz’ s newest exhibition was a fairly frightening experience. Schultztown is a retrospective of Shultz’s work, put on display as a fire sale to make some room in his studio.
Part of Art Month Sydney’s goal is to heighten the profile of artists and galleries. What better way to do this than to curate and exhibition that people have no choice to wander through as they go about their lives? James Dorahy has called upon some of his favorite artists and local businesses to turn the main […]
As the Project 5 team mentions often: urban art is hot property right now. With this in mind, they have facilitated a collaboration between four street/urban artists and the charity Information and Cultural Exchange which results in an Project 5′s third “live art” event where you can watch the artists in action followed by an […]
BIG night at China Heights last week with the opening of PETRO’s solo show “Too Big To Be Human”. The man is a graffiti writer, illustrator,sculptor, installation artist and photographer and we are sure he’d go ahead and try anything else you threw at him.
FBi is a radio station that seems to always be in desperate need of cash and and as a result these guys have some very creative fundraising ideas. 2009 saw them have a shot at asking Richard Branson for $1 million and the birth of Still Life. Still Life is an auction of donated artworks […]
There is a very very sexy new exhibition space in Sydney – the name is LO-FI Collective. We recommend you get along and acquaint yourselves.
Friend of Leon turned international on Thursday night hosting an exhibition of works by New York artist and designer Sara Blake.
There has not been a show so appropriately titled as Ali Noble’s “Pink Thing”. Ali gave us pink collage, pink sculpture, pink installation in the Factory 49 gallery space, as well as an impressive neon pink facelift for the Aurora Biscuit Factory across the street.
Marrickville Contemporary Art Prize has just turned four years old. It is such a thrill to see that this humble little competition is getting bigger and better every year.
The Stalk – Rhiana Griffith, mixed media on canvas. Forgive us for abbreviating the title of this post to “Wednesday August 4th, 2010″. Our excuse lies solely with the fact that when Global Gallery opens its doors for an opening it’s a major event. This particular evening played host to solo shows from 7 artists, as well as open […]
Second year students from Sydney College of the Arts were in the spotlight for RAW: a group show from 5 artists currently studying sculptue, performance and installation art.
Well well, there’s a new kid on the block. We only caught wind of the launch of Plump Gallery the day before the event. We couldn’t we resist a peek.
Another night, another opening. Feeling lazy and yet in desperate need of art, we decided to try something new. ESP Gallery was a very pleasant surprise (!), as were the artists exhibiting on this particular night.
Julia Schauenburg is a photographer with an impressive resume. Her advertising and fashion portfolio is beautiful. However, it is often personal work that really brings out the most in photographers when they are able to use their art to communicate their own messages.
Last night MOP Projects played host to the launch of SafARI 2010, a multi-site exhibition that sees a collection of Sydney’s Artist Run Initiative Galleries pull together and hand their walls to a select group of emerging and unrepresented artists.
Apologies for the delay on sharing this fabulous show with you. And now that that is done and said… WOW! Outre doesn’t have too many solo shows, but when they do you know it’s going to be good. Niagara’s April solo show did not disappoint.
