Skin Gallery: 'Two', an exhibition by Adam Knapper and Güler Altunbas

Arts Access Victoria is pleased to invite you to the opening of Two, an exhibition that features the work of Güler Altunbas in dialogue with the work of her partner, Adam Knapper. This is a great opportunity to meet the artists and get your hands on some of their artwork!

When: Thursday 31 January, 5pm – 6pm

Where: Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc, Level 1/80 Drummond St, Carlton, VIC, 3053

Access: wheelchair

Cost: free

RSVP: Please email pnoack@artsaccess.com.au by Wednesday 23 January (refreshments provided).

Adam’s work takes its cue from street art, pop art, as well as the magical dreamscapes of surrealism and fantasy art. Adam has received many commissions for street art and his work can be seen at various sites across Melbourne. For more information about Adam’s work, please visit his website.

Social justice issues are important to Güler; these can be seen in her previous work and are particularly the focus of her current artworks. Her creations are often decorative and symbolic in nature. She is interested in spirituality and art, and how the two can co-exist. For more information about Güler’s work, please visit her website.

Two will be on display at Skin Gallery from Thursday 31 January to Wednesday 3 April, Monday – Friday, 9.00am – 5.00pm.

Skin Gallery is an initiative created in conjunction with Arts Access Victoria and the Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc. Skin Gallery provides local artists with disability, mental illness or who are deaf/Deaf with the opportunity to display and sell their works, and a creative outlook for Foundation patients and staff.
