Saturday afternoon saw the sun shining upon the huge crowd that turned up to the opening of Arts Project Australia‘s Annual Gala.
The final exhibition for the year, the Annual Gala features at least one work by every artist attending the Arts Project studio, showcasing the variety of artistic styles by Arts Project artists in one visual feast. Artists, friends and families, and Northcote locals came along to soak in the atmosphere, enjoying the sounds of Pamela (the artist band consisting of Jon Campbell, Minna Gilligan and Georgina Glanville), and perhaps dabbling in a burger or ice cream provided by the Mr. Burger and Whippy Kiosks food trucks.
In the Christmas spirit Arts Project offers art buyers the option to take their artworks home with them as they buy them, and so the exhibition constantly changes as new works go up to replace those that are taken home. For anyone who missed the opening on Saturday (or those who made the opening but would like to see the new works that have gone), the Annual Gala runs until December 19.
