40% Wool / 60% Acrylic @ The Wall

Every Wednesday night The World Bar in Kings Cross plays host to The Wall. The dedicated weekly art party is providing an accessible exhibition space for emerging artists. This particular evening the resident show was 40% Wool / 60% Acrylic, a group show curated by Hardware Gallery’s director Lew Palaitis.

The title of the show was provided as the brief for the artists. The resulting artworks were amazingly diverse. Some very literal interpretations included knitted objects and creations from old woolen jumpers. There were, of course, a lot of works starring sheep.

100% Wool - George Nova

With 30 artists involved there was a nice sized crowd gathered to enjoy the show. The little bar dedicated to The Wall was surprisingly cozy and private from the rest of the venue… perhaps they try to keep the free champagne a secret from the rest of their paying patrons.  We’re definitely not complaining – it’s a nice little space indeed.

This is Why I Paint... - Thomas C Chung

We just love Thomas C Chung’s work. His sense of humor and (evidently) incredible knitting fingers brings a smile to our faces every time we see his masterpieces. Keep an eye out.

Glad to Have You Here - Adam Dorahy

Tunes for the evening were kindly provided by Milo Firewater.
