Hard Cover No Jacket
Our friends from Oh Really Gallery are having a big exhibition to celebrate their first year and the launch of Oh Really Magazine issue 5 with a group show of hand painted books.
Over the past twelve months Oh Really has carved out a new space for art in Sydney’s inner west and has brought the creative community together around a diverse program of exhibitions and events. In it’s first year Oh Really presented over a dozen exhibitions from artists including Phibs, Beastman, Mini Graff, Simon Degroot and Ape7, played host to the Australian Stencil Art Prize, held half a dozen Culture Jams (improvised jams for artists and musicians) and more than a few productive artist lock-ins, launched the art-buying frenzy that was Cardboard City, produced a sold-out edition of Oh Really Magazine issue 4, and collaborated with local projects as Creative Sydney, CarriageARTSworks and Poliform for Design Sydney.
All that, while entertaining and directly engaging with hundreds of art lovers and passers-by every week, through the gallery space on Enmore Road.
Oh Really would like to thank everyone that’s made art, bought art, or looked at the art on the walls. Without you we’ll just be three guys sitting/drawing/laughing on a couch in an empty shopfront. We invite you to come celebrate one year of Oh Really and to welcome in the next big year at our new group show, Hard Cover No Jacket.
Hard Cover No Jacket, opening on Friday September 4, will present a collection of hand painted book covers from Australian and international artists, featuring:
