Tonight Gawler Place is celebrating World Tiny Art Gallery Day with a new exhibition celebrating the big things that come in little packages.
The Tiny Gallery Easter celebration will begin tonight at 5:30pm with a Tiny Easter Art hunt. Six small artworks by previous Flaneur Gallery exhibitors will be up for grabs in Fisher Place and Gawler Place – all you have to do is find them!
“The artists have wrapped them up and are hiding them this afternoon… people will be sent out to hunt!” said Gallery Flaneur co-curator Sarah Maddock.
Hear from co-curators Matt Jorgensen and Sarah Maddock at the official launch of the Gawler Place exhibition and learn everything you need to know about these tiny pockets of fun.
At 6:15pm take a stroll down Fisher Place with co-curator Matt Jorgensen to see the latest Gallery Flaneur Exhibition. Join lovers of tiny art at Adelaide’s bar scene at 6:30pm to continue the celebrations long into the night.
If you can’t make it out tonight, the exhibition will be livestreamed for galleries interstate and overseas. Locals can also catch the exhibition until Friday 22 April.
Acknowledging the big impacts that tiny galleries have around the world, a collection of 10 artist’s works will bring miniature fun to Adelaide.
Tiny artworks hidden around the city tonight are provided from some of Australia’s most beloved local artists including: Hamish Fleming, The Walking Creative, One Small Piece Mosaics, Sair Bean, JDoor Please and Jack Fran.
“Its exactly like an eater egg hunt- a once of event for the exhibition,” said Sarah.
Tiny Art has quickly become a favourite for Adelaide City goers since the opening of Gallery Flaneur. The hole-in-the-wall art show is Adelaide’s self proclaimed smallest Gallery featuring the very best from local artists.
“We started the gallery in 2018- I was used to seeing an empty cabinet when I used to catch the bus and thought.. I would love to see some art in there!” said Sarah.
“We applied for an art grant and we kick started the gallery – it was meant to be a 6 month project and here we are 4 years later.”
The event is supported by Adelaide Unleashed, an initiative of the City of Adelaide, the Adelaide Economic Development Agency (AEDA) and State Government of South Australia with the aim to bring economic activity to the city.
World Tiny Art Gallery Day Celebration will kick off from tonight 5:30pm at Gallery Flaneur Fisher Place between Rundle Mall and North Terrace.
