OPENINGS AND THE ARTS IN SYDNEY – 10/09/2012 – 16/09/2012

This week’s ‘In Gallery’ is Mop project, the interview can been seen on our blog at:

On  a sad note, as many of you know Oxford Art Supplies has closed its doors. Oxford Art Supplies began its days in 1964 as a hardware store in the rundown inner city suburb of Darlinghurst. It  was run by Alf and Bessie Altshuler.  In 1974, the owner’s son, David Altshuler, decided to expand the product range to include hand=stretched canvases, artist and student quality paints, brushes and pencils. Since then, Oxford Art Supplies has been serving professional artists, art students, graphic designers, advertising agencies and the complete beginner. We are sad to see you gone.

Check out of listing of arts events as there are many to choose from, you can also subscribe to the blog and get the information straight to your inbox.
