Opening this evening! Natalia Milosz-Piekarska & Karla Way, Deirdre Feeney and Ricarda Bigolin & Michael Spooner

Opening this evening is a very exciting round of shows... please join us for festivities, good times and red wine (red wine!) from 6pm onwards to usher in the following exhibitions:

In Gallery 1 jeweller-babes Natalia and Karla (and Fresh! alumni!) are presenting a new body of work based on their interest and exploration into the realm of the 'heebie-jeebies', or more specifically warding away the 'heebie-jeebies'.

Craft Victoria would also like to extend a massive, MASSIVE congratulations to Natalia for nabbing the British Council's 'Realise Your Dream' prize. Hooray!

Over in Gallery 2 is Deirdre Feeney, who will also be presenting a very recent body of work that engages with architecture and the moving image (the latter being sometimes known as the 'seventh art').

Ricarda Bigolin & Michael Spooner, For What It's Worth

And around the corner in Gallery 3 are PhD candidates Ricarda Bigolin (Fashion) & Michael Spooner (Architecture). For this exhibition Ricarda and Michael have fused together their two fields of research... and added an elephant to it. Talk about the elephant in the room!

Awesome jokes aside, for one night only (tonight) you can try on and be photographed in one of their elephant-inspired knitted garments. These spontaneous portraits will then be added to a photographic installation on the walls of Gallery 3. All we're saying is that you better bring your A-game...

These three shows open tonight at 6pm. See you there!
