ART & DESIGN - Mother's Day Flowers Ideas for Eastside

Don't arrive empty handed. Not this year. We've got the best florists to pop into on your way to any event and get something that will really make an impact. Whether it's nationally acclaimed Pearsons in Darlinghurst  with their bright and colourful arrangements and great selection of orchids, OR Pollon with their rustic and daring displays for the more wild hearted Mums amongst us.

There is a special spot in our hearts for Grandiflora in Potts Point and Hermetica in Wooloomooloo whose timeless elegance never fails to impress. This is where to go for a more sophisticated approach.  And we couldn't forget PoHo, whose artistic approach to mixing colours and shapes will have everyone talking long after Mother's Day is over.

ART - Queer Art After Hours... don't neglect your creativity this Mardi Gras

If you are craving some creativity in your life then get amongst the amazing partnership between Mardi Gras and the Art Gallery of NSW. At this year's Queer Art After Hours, Mardi Gras is celebrating queer tattoos. The project is discussing a number of questions like, Is it a phenomenon with a unified queer aesthetic? Do tattoos created by and for queer people have meanings and traditions that break from the tattooing mainstream? Or are there no categories or boundaries (and that is actually the point)? Overall exploring the complex language and significance of tattoos in our queer communities.

They are collecting images of queer tattoos as well as looking for six fearless people to participate in Queer Tattoos, a living display of queer tattoos at Queer Art After Hours at the Art Gallery of NSW on Wed 27 Feb, 2019.  If you have some ink to share you can simply tag your images with #queerarttattoos.
