|Aaron McKenzie - Glass art|
I managed to slip in a speech, thanking Rick from The Cool Room for his unwavering belief and support in us and his understanding of Aaron as an artist in his own right. Also the Artists and Mariella from Art so Far for there incredible portfolio exhibited at the launch, a feast in so many ways.
Also all the designers that Surface has collaborated with, who also see our vision and whom we are so excited to have exhibit and sell in the showroom.
The night was so successful we even got a visit from the kids in blue, who I might add where not particularly inventive with the lines they had learned verbatim from police academy when the main issue was just a spill out of people onto the footpath, I didn't particularly love being called "Corey" by them for blogging or sending out an email - I was surprised they didn't see with open eyes the value of such a success in ST Kilda creativity or how to hold a decent adult conversation...... but none the less the word on the street was........ its not a REAL party until the p-o-l-i-c-e arrive!
So here's a few pix of the night and the launch of the space;
lets engage, lets collaborate. lets shift the way we see space, whats next?
