Marrickville Women's Salon

The Marrickville Women's Salon is a group exhibition which is showcasing the work of over 40 female artists living or working in the Marrickville area. It was officially launched by the Marrickville Mayor on the day of the federal election.

Here are a few photos of the opening and the gallery:

Huge thanks to local artist Ellena Rados for putting together the show!

The exhibition is on until this Sunday 5 September 2010 at ESP Gallery, 228 Illawarra Rd, Marrickville.

Cardboard love

I find cardboard such an inspiring material, it's sturdy, versatile, and either recycled or recyclable.

Design boom featured a couple of cool new cardboard designs this week:

move-it cardboard cart is intended for users without transport who need to move large boxes from a shop to their home. The cart is composed of a handle and a set of wheels which stick onto any size box. Designed by David Warwick Graham.

'my space' is a cardboard folding/pop-up play area for children developed specifically for small apartments which lack the space for a play room. It can be folded up and stored behind a door or under a single bed. Designed by Liya Mairson.

When I was young, my older sister won a cardboard spaceship. Man, I loved that thing!
