Out and About with Rise Art
Ongoings and Goings On
There's a lot happening at Rise Art at the moment. Try decking out the rooms of two enormous hotels with artwork. It's quite a feat. Luckily our curators are up to the challenge, as are the guys and gals in charge of logistics. Since we love to set ourselves a challenge, we have a big photoshoot planned for next week to snap pics of some of our best artworks. So we've hired a house for a day. Casual. For this reason, the office is bursting at the seams with canvases big and small. There is an insane amount of bubble wrap involved. Whatever, we love it.
