On Thursday night we celebrated two artists, their close friendship, synchronised birthdays, and an amazing body of work. Congratulations and Happy Birthday to our brilliant POOL founders Sean Izzard and Simon Harsent.
A huge thank you to everyone who attended the ‘Fifty/50’ exhibition Thursday night. Being the huge celebration it was, apologies it’s taken a little longer than usual for us to share the photos from the night. It was so wonderful to see so many friends and family come out and support this long awaited joint exhibition.
Thank you to Head On Photo Festival for featuring and supporting this special exhibition. To our wonderful guest speaker for the evening – Industry guru and all round legend, Warren Brown for sharing his stories from working closely with the guys over the years.
A special thanks to 4 Pines Brewery for providing the crowd with their refreshing brews, cheers. This exhibition would not have been possible without the lovely Selena from Sun Studios who did an amazing job with all the prints. Also thank you to pooligans Cameron, Hannah and Courtney for pulling it all together.
And finally, thank you to the one and only DJ Jack Shit for keeping the party going well into the early hours.
‘Fifty/50’ will be on display until the end of May, so make sure you head down to Black Eye to see this wonderful series up close.
Exhibition dates: 19 – 31 May 2015
