If your in Sydney and free this Saturday (September 19th) you’ll have to check out the COFA spring fair. COFA will once again open its doors to the public to celebrate art, design and multi media in a multitude of activities in a carnival atmosphere.
A great opportunity to see young emerging talent, grab unique gifts and if your a prospective art student, check out the campus and see what is on offer. Located on the corner of Oxford St and Greens Road in Paddington.
This year the program promises even bigger and brighter events, markets, and entertainment including the fine art and design market, exhibitions, studio tours, food and DJs.
Gates open 10am.
In Sydney and free tommorow night?? Jarrah is a second year Fine Arts student majoring in sculpture/ installation at COFA. Having experimented with jewellery making, papier-mâché, metal casting and textiles over the last year, she has produced a variety of collages and wearable art pieces that possess a fantastical, self-consciously kitsch aesthetic. These works explore our perpetual, cross cultural desire to imitate wealth and status, particularly in light of democratic freedoms and mass production, and how this relates to ancient customs of immortalization. Riveting stuff? Or just like it because it looks pretty. Come along and play dress ups!
