 Though we may still shiver in our shoes, Sydney's Object Gallery have wasted no time in launching their new Spring Series
A deliberate diversion from their regular program of exhibitions, this platform of ideas and creative thinking will run from July to October and is sure to bring some much needed warmth to the creative scene.  Taking place in and around the Gallery as well as online, we have a particular favourite that we just have to share. Much Lead is an installation inspired by Surry Hills, (our stomping ground) as a 'studio neighbourhood'.   The work explores the idea of the pencil as a simple yet essential tool.  Donated by designers, makers, artists, tradespeople and students, the pencils will be suspended to create a canopy of colour, drawing together a surprising, cross-disciplinary community of pencil lovers.
...if you would like to donate a pencil, we would love to hear from you...
Claire and Felicity from Sam Crawford Architects , the brains behind the B2 and HB suspension, are getting you in on the action by asking for your pencil and your story.   For more info, pop over to the Much Lead BlogKE-ZU will also be serving as a drop off point for pencils, we'll make sure they wind their way to Claire and Felicity ready for the opening in October 2010!
