Today’s super number 3, is from the awesome Tom Hovey. Who also happens to be featured in the Forth Thread zine, which we are excited to say is now available. We are yet to set up shop, and organise stockists, but if you are keen to get your hands on a copy just contact us. Or if you are interested in stocking the zine, also get in touch.
We are excited to share with you an upcoming exhibition ‘Once Upon‘, which we are proud supporters of.
Feeling disheartened by the “Sydney Art Scene” Renee Anne and Angela D’Alton (of Leeloo) decided to hold the exhibition to celebrate Leeloo’s 2nd birthday, in one of Sydney’s best underground venues supporting struggling artists, aMBUSH gallery. Fast forward a few months, over 100 submissions and a lot of headaches later, Renee and Angela have curated 38 of the finest Australian artists participate in the ‘Once Upon’ exhibition which will no doubt be a highlight on the Sydney art calendar. Including some of Australia’s top emerging talent, amongst newcomers, with a wide variety of styles.
Each artist has been allocated their own fairy tale to interpret, and 30 of the artists will create four original and new artworks to exhibit. Also due to the volume of submissions, there will also be ‘On The Wall’, where a further 8 artists involved will submit one piece to be included.
Opening Night: Thursday November 19th. at aMBUSH gallery from 6pm-9pm.
The show will continue to open daily from Friday to Sunday, and there will be a Leeloo ‘Pop up store’ for the public to have a hands-on look at some of our gorgeous online goodies.
Leeloo has established itself as a solid supporter of young emerging designers and artists, as well as providing a nurturing community environment to those involved.
As a result, Leeloo will be celebrating it’s 2nd birthday, and its ongoing mission to support local artists by holding its very own exhibition (and opening night party of course!).
Titled Once Upon, Leeloo is currently seeking talented artists within the Australian community for an exhibition to be held at aMBUSH gallery in Sydney from Thursday 19th November.
Keeping with the theme, all accepted artists will be allocated a fairy tale to provide a basis for interpretation for the works which will be displayed. Artworks provided will be for sale during the exhibition, with all pricing, specifications, entry fees and other details to be advised after acceptance.
The event will feature a sponsored opening night with strong industry support and exposure via our extensive online networks and other media. The Leeloo artists you will be exhibiting alongside are Bec Winnel (My Charlie Girl), Alicia Rosam (Ali J), Tabitha Patterson (Tabitha Emma) and Jessica Hyde (truth.be.told) amongst many others.
Submissions are due by 18th September. Click the above image for details or go to Leeloo Dog blog.
