This is it folks, the one we've been waiting for: The Fold an exhibition of new work by HML favourite Nathan Gray. And we love it, not just because we love Nathan's work (and we do) but also cause it's really really local and we only have to cross the road to see the show.
The Fold runs from the 27th of July to the 17th of August at Joint Hassles
2a Mitchell Street Northcote 3071
Opening night :Friday the 27th 6-8pm,
then from Thursday til Saturday 12 - 5pm.
And because Nathan and his band of merry pranksters want to wow your ears as well as your eyes make sure you make it to one of the performaces on throughout of the show.

AND If you feel like making a comparative analysis of the paper scene you have one week to see things from a distincly NYC perspective in PAPER SWORDS at Third Drawer Down Gallery in St. Kilda. The show has been c0-curated with Brooklyn's Cinders Gallery and explores a current group of artists working primarily on paper, a medium that has been one of the gallery's main focuses. Artists include John Orth (see "flood" above), George Ferrandi, Kevin Hooyman, Matthew Feyld, Julien Langendorff, Zachary Rossman, Allyson Mellberg, Jeremy Taylor, Logan Macdonald, Justin Williams, Kelie Bowman, Diane Barcelowsky and Sto, all part of a generation that has embraced simple tools such as pencil, pen, paint, and collage with influences from the usual suspects of comics, popular culture, punk rock, and psychedelia. Cinders Gallery is an artist-run space that has existed in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn for 3 years.
