thursday met us with a heatwave and also the opening of once upon at ambush gallery. the night was quite overwhelming in all its delight! putting aside melting makeup and a stifling temperature, my friends and i travelled down to ambush gallery. coincidentally three of us were dressed in black and looked like a funeral posse. behind the golden arches of McDonalds hid ambush gallery and a swarm of art adorers and fairytales bordered by white baroque frames. i had to step outside and compose myself a few times. the quantity and quality of art shown was astounding. i am just so glad i was lucky enough to be able to take part. overwhelmed, i was so overwhelmed!
all in all, the night was stellar. i met some lovely people, saw alot of great art and enjoyed wine, free frankie magazines and the company of my extraordinarily supportive friends.
highlights of the night included seeing works by courtney brimms, bec winnel and sarah mcneil in the flesh, midnight nachos with alejandro, beetle brooches, nervous conversations and fran drescher adoration.
i was also pleased to find that one of my paintings had sold on the first day! yay.
the exhibition and leeloo pop up store are open until the 22nd of November, so go and have a look if you live nearby.
