ROSYONE pressie


ROSYONE exhibited with us back in December. Her work was amazing, so much so that one buyer ordered up the original of one of the prints she sent over for the show. In the package she sent over she also sent us and the buyer 2 of her beautiful mix tapes each. We're feelin lucky. Check them out. My Super Woofer is lovin them!

We're starting a wee block of solo shows this year, the first being an exhibition of work from illustrator/ animator Andrew Rae which we opened on the 11th Januray 2008. You might recognise his work from Monkey Dust. Him and his lovely wife Chrissey came up and we all had a whole lot of fun, Andrew did a mural, Chrissie soggied the toilet, and we played guitar hero into the night...

Kirsty Whiten Auction Show




For our 4th show we exhibited work from the back catalogue of Kirsty Whiten's seven year career. The exhibition ended with all pieces being auctioned at a live event on the 30th of November 2007. All pieces sold for over their asking prices even though everyone got a bargain. The show was a great success, mon the Whiten sisters!
