I just love Woolf Works co-working space in Joo Chiat - it's run by the lovely Michaela Anchan from New Zealand. I'm really excited about showing in the quaint shophouse space of Woolf Works with a dynamic group of artists! Looking forward to the evening and hearing some more fantastic speakers. Don't miss Woolf Works Wednesday Edition on 26 Wednesday, November at 7pm. Works will be on sale so a great chance to pick up a Christmas gift.
Synergy presents the work of six overseas-born painters and printmakers living in Singapore. As the title suggests, this group of artists regularly collaborate to support each other in their respective professional practices. With some artists only recent arrivals, and others here for almost 25 years, this exhibition brings together a diverse group whose work reflects a shared interest in their immediate surroundings.
