I'm going to jail tomorrow night, and I'm taking my art with me!
Yep! Tomorrow night 7th of November '15 - I'm being involved in an art show at the historic Boggo Road Gaol in Brisbane. I will literally have a jail cell in Cell Block D set up as my art gallery for the night.
This just isn't any jail. This place is a 100+ year old maximum security prison, and known as one of the most haunted places in Brisbane.
It's part of a 'party' that is being held by Flying Eyeball Promotions. It's open to the public, and you can get tickets at http://flyingeyeballpromotions.com/
Info from their event page:
The night’s entertainment includes drum’n’bass, heavy metal, rock and progressive; projection mapping on 3 storey brick walls, the Heavenly Art Gallery inside cell block D, interactive video walls, live performance art in cell block F, to name a few – and once again we have BYO status!
There will be limited tickets at the door, but the event is limited to a certain number of people, so if you're keen I recommend to pre-book your tickets on the website.
I'll be taking art prints, colouring books and postcards with me, as well as a couple of original paintings including:
"Ice Cream Fantasy"
"Wicked Witch of the West"
|"The Little Mermaid's Demise"|
I've been here once before (during the day) for a tour when I was a teenager and I remember it being really eerie, so I am a little anxious about it...although I'm excited as well. Nervcited?
Wish me luck!!!
