Opening: ‘A Study of Eyes’ at Backwoods Gallery – Melbourne

Backwoods is hosting a group show of epic proportions (no pun intended). ‘A study of eyes’ sees the gallery group together some of the world’s best to examine the eye. If the last group show ‘A study of Hands’ is anything to go by, we recommend getting down to see this show. With a lineup like this, it’s bound to be amazing.

Photos: No Vacancy 5 year anniversary

In the low brow art world, some galleries stay, some go, some linger and grow old, but there’s one gallery in Melbourne that has stayed true and has always been at the forefront of the Melbourne gallery circuit. That’s No Vacancy.

The gallery, who’s main space is in the heart of the city, and also has two satellite spaces, has recently just celebrated their 5th birthday!

Featuring a stellar line up that was Meggs, Ghostpatrol, Ben Frost, Miso, Two One, Nior, Beastman, Makatron, Tom Vincent, Jasper Wong, Max Berry, Numskull, Adnate, Sheryo, Nails, Stephen Ives, Luke Lucas, and many many more (too many for me to re-type)… the show was packed full of both recent work and un seen old work that the artists contributed to a killer show. For us, we think there needs to be more of these group shows. Big celebrations of what’s happening right now in the young art world.

Thanks to the NV team for sending over the great photos (taken by Caitlin Muscat). Click below for the full set (there are ALOT of photos)…
