Opening: ‘Until Next Time…” final show at The Tate Gallery – Sydney

We were deeply saddened by the news of The Tate Gallery’s closing…

It’s been a gallery close to our hearts, and a space that in it’s time, has hosted an incredible mix of both world renown artists, and young emerging artists. All without rent or commission. Something which is so unique in the art world.

We’re excited to be helping The Tate Gallery team with one last show. So we’ve gathered as many available artists on short notice as possible to curate one last group show.

Where: The Tate Gallery, Glebe
Opening Hours: Wednesday 4th March, 6pm onwards

Stockroom was a one night only show that boasted an eclectic mix of styles and genres, with artists ranging in age from 21 – 40 years old.

If you’d like to see the full catalogue or find out more about the Stockroom, please email sales@thehours.com.au or click below to see the full set of photos.

Opening: Shida “Higher Planes” at The Tate Gallery – Sydney

We are proud to announce the opening of Shida‘s debut Sydney solo show. An artist that has recently made a name for himself all around Australia and across the world with his unique aesthetic and drive to paint large scale walls.

SHIDA’S new body of work, HIGHER PLANES is writhing with Dionysiac energy. Arabesque figures coil amidst deciduous branches, as fluid, mountainous panoramas reflect SHIDA’s painterly dynamism. Through HIGHER PLANES, SHIDA continues to experiment with visual space and landscape painting. Contrasting his traditionally fluorescent palette with phthalo blues, Shida uses layered brushstrokes to create shuffling, otherworldly scenes.

Curated by THE HOURS, HIGHER PLANES opens August 21 at Sydney’s Tate Gallery.
