Zen Garage played host to a horde of sweaty cyclists last night as our man cave marked the finishing line for the Cops and Convicts Alleycat race through Sydney CBD.
For those not familiar with an Alleycat race, think “The Amazing Race”. Starting in Hyde Park, participants were given a map of checkpoints they had to cycle to. Checkpointers at each checkpoint handed out clues and all along the way participants had to fill in answers on a riddle sheet (get answers wrong and time gets added to your final race time). Prizes were handed out to first place in various categories, as well as the traditional “Dead Friggin’ Last”.
Last night we officially opened our gallery. Our first group show featured the work of Automotive Photographers: Jordan Donnelly (USA), Jason Hanif, Philip Nguyen, Easton Chang, Chris Brasher, Felix Alim, Matthew Mead, Kory Leung, Matthew Everingham and Kelvin Ng.
James Squire beers were supplied by our good friends at The Malt Shovel and 4 of the 10 works were sold on the night. The show will continue through to the end of this month, so be sure to drop in for a visit!
I’ve kept my eye on these robot vacuum cleaners for a while now and I felt that I had waited long enough for revisions and refinements. This device not only makes pretty sounds, it talks to me (with a sexy female voice) and best of all it returns to it’s base for charging (something the Sony robot dog should have done in my opinion!).
The share tables made portfolio reviewing easy. Vibe was all-together different to the city store, much more relaxed.
Vince ‘the man’ Frost, surrounded by keen ears, in the zone!
Infront Presents Workshop went down at the Apple Store in Bondi Junction yesterday afternoon. Massive thanks to Apple, students in attendance and our portfolio reviewers: Vince Frost, Chris Doyle, Toby Pike, Pip Jamieson, Andrew Moffitt, Sam Adeloju and Jon Christensen for making it a great success. Photos are now up on our Facebook Page.
All set for our gallery opening @ Zen Garage tomorrow night. I’ve even got those little red dots you stick next to a piece to indicate that it’s sold :) If you’re free, drop in to celebrate our gallery opening with us: 6.30PM 7/99 Moore Street Leichhardt tomorrow (Thursday) night.
Nanami surprised me this morning with some pressies. :) A book on Bike Art (both bikes in art, and bikes as art, it’s awesome and very much in tune with a thread I started on BMU a few years ago), a moleskin which is so dead sexy I’m almost afraid to mark it with my doodles and horrible handwriting… and some naughty bull-clips too which have been a hit in the Zen office hehe.
