Auraflox art exhibition @ Art Systems Wickham
Local artists Peter Speight and Ahn Wells are excited to announce the opening of their Auraflox exhibition at Art Systems Wickham today.
Renowned throughout the Hunter for his bold sculptures skillfully carved from found camilla wood Speight’s work has been known to simultaneously shock and seduce viewers.
Alternatively Wells’s method with white printmaker’s paper and light hues initially seems to be far more minimalistic. It is not until closer inspection that you appreciate the delicate manipulation of
the paper surface, the obsessive puncturing of tiny holes layered with pencil, paint and oil sticks.
Despite having known each other for the past decade it has not been until this year that they’ve exhibited together.
Open from the 20th of July to the 5th of August, 12-4pm Fri-Sun you can check out the exhibition at the Art Systems Wickham at 40 Annie Street, WICKHAM 2293.
Dave Graney and The MistLY @ Lizzote’s
Dave Graney and The MistLY are bringing their whip-smart pop rock songs to Lizzote’s tonight as they promote their most recent album entitled, You’ve Been on my Mind.
With a laid back no-bull approach Dave states, ‘this bunch of songs was recorded quickly, just the way I like it. It’s not about layers of sounds, it’s just the simple setup of the band…’
Promising to be an upbeat set showcasing their brand of 70’s rock complete with r&b grooves and a sense of jazz Dave Graney and The MistLY guarantee a great night out.
Tickets to this event are $30pp with an a-la-carte and bar menu available. To book or for more information call (02) 4956 2066 or visit this site.
