In the early days of BIG we met the fabulous Leigh Russell though Arts Rocket, where she blogs about discovering and exploring arts in Sydney and beyond with kids. Recently Leigh, together with Vanessa Berry, launched a project called Re:make where 12 artists were invited to re-imagine and create new work abandoned art rescued from the side of the road. Funds from the exhibition and sale of the works will be used to establish an art workshop program at East Sydney High, a school which provides education for young people who aren’t able to access mainstream schooling. The creative process to re-make the work evolved over many weeks and here we let the images tell the story/stories.
Exhibition opens Saturday 29th March 4-6pm, 75 William St Darlinghurst.
