The Melbourne Art & Design Fair is on this Saturday just around the corner from us. Be sure to pop by if you’re in the area.
Here’s a little info about this one day pop-up fair:
Supporting home-grown talent
It can be difficult to turn a creative passion into a sustainable business as big global brands expand and rental space & promotional costs rise. That’s why we exist. Pop Ups recognizes the needs of artists, designers, bakers and makers striving to make their mark, providing them with an opportunity to raise their profile and get their name out there.
Pop Ups are funded by sponsors to produce exciting, professionally designed markets with full-blown publicity and advertising support, at just a tiny cost to our stallholders.
Two S&N artists, Kaitlin Beckett and Letitia Buchan are involved in this project. Kaitlin will have a stall at the market and Letitia is vying for the opportunity to have her original artwork decorate the facade of the new Art Apartments about to start development on the site.
To vote for Letitia’s artwork (pictured above) follow these steps:
- Click HERE
- Become a friend of the Art Apartments page (friend approval will come through quickly)
- View the WALL page
- Scroll down till you see the posting mentioning the ART SUBMISSIONS album
- Click on the album and when you get to the photo that shows Letitia Buchan’s submission click the LIKE button
- That’s it – you’ve cast your vote and done your part in supporting local art!
What a coup for Prahran! Greville Street in particular is becoming a real art hub with Carbon Black, Art Boy Gallery, Helen Gory, T-Squat, RTIST and of course, Signed & Numbered all located in and around this tourist precinct.
Maybe it’s time we launch an Art Trail Map… stay tuned….
