Easey Street is open


The Easey Street exhibition opened last night with a crew of fashionable young folk downing beers and wine and having a good laugh.
The exhibition features the works of Missi Alix, Jo Doney, Nina Sers (curator of the exhibition), Timmi Fresh, Olivia Bartley, Mario Camilo and Bloody Bloody Brasco. From the catalogue:
"The Easey Street Studio is a shared working space between seven different artists. Each artist works with different mediums using different ideas and processes. This shared working environment inspires the use of different approaches as work is created in the space overlaps and interrupts each other. This exhibition explores the accidental links between each artists work, showing the impact a shared lifestyle has on each artist."

One of the most popular elements of the exhibition is the long table situated in the middle of the gallery. Carefully is placed is an array of photographs, found objects and small artworks that are taken directly from the artists' studio. This table gives the viewer some insight into what inspires them and how the artists interact with a variety of materials to gain inspiration. On the table is also a short film of the artists working within their environment which is quite addictive viewing!

Easey Street runs until 5th April. More info can be found at www.easeystreet.info also a fun photoshoot is taking place at the gallery on Friday 20 March and Saturday 21 March whereby viewers can interact with a variety of objects and costumes and pretend they are part of Easey Street. It is free, fun and light refreshments will be served. See the public programs section of the blog for more details.
