This Side Up
I got an e-mail from Wootini today letting me know about an upcoming exhibit opening this Friday, June 9th at 7pm. This Side Up started as an idea on a Gigposters.com forum last year and has turned into a travelling exhibit of artwork created on square pieces of cardboard by 56 artists from around the world, most of whom are active members of the online rock-art community. A book containing all of the artwork from the show is in the process of being published. There will be a copy at Wootini to view and they will start taking orders for the book next week. A portion of the proceeds from the book and art sales will be donated to national and local homeless charities. Some of the artists will be on hand for the opening. There will also be snacks, drinks and records spun by DJ's from "Family". Check it out if you get the chance. I might even be there drinking free keg beer and trainspotting the record selection.
