Underground ARTMarket

I went to the opening of the Underground ARTmarket exhibition yesterday and was blown away with the quality of art work on show. The exhibition was buzzing as I checked out the amazing artwork from local painters, photographers and mixed media artists. I feel in love with so many pieces but with an overseas trip only days away I could only justify 1 early Christmas present (thanks, il mio) – a giraffe diorama by artist, Peta Morris.

The gallery did a great job at keeping the market vibe with tables as well as wall space displaying the artwork. I think this really helped to make the pieces feel accessible and probably contributed to the number of red dots on the wall!!!

This is only the second exhibition the gallery has launched and already it seems to be getting a strong following. My studio is next to the gallery space so many of the underground studio artists (except me, who didn’t finish anything in time!!!) were exhibiting with other local, emerging artists. The exhibition really says a lot about the artistic talent we have this side of the harbour bridge.

The exhibition is open until the 19th September and I’d highly recommend anyone who can access the gallery to go and have a look!
