Street Jewellery
A group exhibition

31st Jan – 2nd Mar 2013

Next time you look at the street it will be different.  You may see the occasional thin strip of steel left by the Municipal Street Sweepers after they have performed their obsequious duty, or the discarded washer, the crushed and rusted bottle cap with their usefulness presumed to have been terminated.  Majella Beck and Nina Baker's work challenge this presumption.

"Street" almost always implies the graffiti or tag that decorates? or defaces the urban landscape?  Inspired by street culture, artists Erin Keys and Gretal Ferguson have taken street art off the wall and place it on the body as wearable art.
