Trash Amour Exhibition Opening!

Romance with attitude and edge at Reverse Garbage's exhibition, Trash Amour

Reverse Garbage celebrates the traditionally loved up month of February with a handmade, junky, art exhibition with a twist! Forget traditional flowers, teddy bears and chocolates, this exhibition will showcase romantic handmade objects with a bit of attitude and edge!

“Trash Amour challenged participants to draw inspiration from dark bold colours, Victorian and Edwardian styling, steam punk, retro pin ups, Carnivale and Moulin Rouge for their artworks” says Exhibition Co-ordinator Brooke Nelson.

“We've had a great response with some fabulous creations coming in from our talented local artists” Brooke says.

Featuring the work of over 20 local artists, craftworkers and designers who work with salvaged materials, there will be a diverse range of items on display including fine artworks, jewellery, sculptural items, fashion accessories, cards, gorgeous home wares and more.
“If you're looking to add a bit of attitude to your Valentines gift this year, Reverse Garbage's Trash Amour will be the perfect place to find it” Brooke says.

The opening event on Saturday 18 February, 6-9pm will feature a live set from local Brisbane band, Midnight Revelators (formerly The Midnight Prophets -who cite influences such as Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Beirut) as well as finger food, a bar and late night warehouse shopping.

Trash Amour will run from 18 - 29 February 2012, open Monday to Saturday from 9 – 5pm.  Opening event: Saturday 18 February 6-9pm. Reverse Emporium Reverse Garbage 20 Burke St Woolloongabba.
