I'm a lawyer who likes to write about our wonderful city instead of affidavits from time to time.
Purchase beautiful hand-made art and create some too!
As Aristotle once said, the aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. The Inner West Council of Sydney is channelling this philosophy by hosting a great initiative which showcases art, not just as a form of individual expression, but also as a platform to inspire, initiate and celebrate artistic community vision.
Every Sunday from 13 November to 18 December 2016 come down to the Affordable Art Markets at Pop In Space at 74-76 Pyrmont Bridge Bridge Road, Camperdown to browse a beautiful collection of hand-made art for purchase which humbly ranges anywhere from $5 to $500. This will be a great chance to snap up some unique Christmas gifts as well as support local Sydney artists. Enjoy some coffee and cake while you shop (or some smashed avocado later if you're a millennial) for the perfect lazy Sunday.
The artworks range vastly in style and therefore appeal to a wide range of individual taste and expression.

After experiencing the artworks at the lovely white and light filled Pop In Space venue, you are invited to create your own piece of art for the LOCAL Pop art installation which celebrates all types of art and community contribution.
This is a rare opportunity for community members to have a platform which showcases their creativity and expression as part of a larger public art installation. In this way LOCAL Pop is about inviting the community to participate in making an art installation together.
There will be experienced art workers at Pop In Space to assist and guide you with any advice you need so you don't have to a professional artist to showcase your talents. A Closing Celebration on Thursday 1 December 2016 will celebrate the creations as well as all the artists behind them.
If you wish to make a group booking at the space, drop off your artwork or attend the Closing Celebration, please contact Bronwyn Tuohy at email@example.com.
