Ai-Ai Gasa - Exhibition

Ai-Ai Gasa, meaning 'to share an umbrella', is a joint exhibition between two amazing artists, Cat Rabbit & The Seven Seas. So inspired by a joint trip to Tokyo in the Winter of 2012, that they came home and created an abundance of beautiful works. Made up of collaborative and individual mixed media pieces, the exhibition features embroidered pictures, alpaca dolls, installations and drawings that reflect their two week stint in an amazing city. This must-see exhibition kicks off at No-Vacancy Gallery from 6pm tonight, and runs from the 10 - 19 May.

Koskela Creative Workshops

Koskela is an Australian design company, located in a converted warehouse in Rosebery, Sydney.
