This weeks sees the temp get cooler and the art getting hotter.
This week sees the first solo show of LJ Peters on Wednesday.
A great week of shows, make sure you check out Gaffa’s pop gallery the second opening on Friday.
Congratulations for the Hopscotch/Sydney Galleries ‘Little White Lies competition winners, who were notified via email.
The last little white lie that I told was to my 94 year old nanna when she was concerned about a painting that I am doing as a comission for a family friend. The family friend gave me a small religious picture of Jesus holding a man in his arms whom he was about to heal, and the man was holding a cross. He wants me to replace the cross with a Jack Daniels bottle because it seems that the image relates to him because he looks as though he has ‘been through the wars’. When my mother told my nanna about the painting, she was very concerned and said that I will have to watch my back around religious people. This is when I told her that it was not a Jack Daniels bottle he was holding, but instead wine, because they had wine in The last supper. She was very relieved when I told her that.

THINGS OF INTEREST
ABOUT THE ROCKS POP UP PROJECT:::
Four buildings//six months//limitless thinking
For six short months The Rocks will pulse with the energy and passion of
an ever-changing mix of creative minds as they take up residence in four
vacant heritage buildings on George Street.
Artists, sculptors, fashion designers, jewellery makers, writers, and even
a tailor will turn The Rocks into a nucleus of studios, galleries, pop-up
shops and event spaces as they breathe new life into familiar surrounds.
How each artist or collective uses their space is limited only by their
own imagination. The only thing you can be sure of is that nothing stays
the same for long and you’re always in for a surprise.
Check therocks.com to find out what’s happening each week.
10am to 7pm Wednesdays to Sundays
