Art Heist

Many, many months ago now, Amy came to us with an idea – let’s put on an exhibition! Hire a space, have some fun – we all had various artistic hobbies going on, why not?

Paul, Tom and I all said yes, and so the adventure began.

We had the space booked for a week and spent some time brainstorming ideas for various other activities to make full use of the space. Slowly, it emerged that we liked one idea the most – an Art Heist.

Think of your typical escape room, but instead of trying to solve puzzles to get out – you’re trying to get in, steal an artwork and make it out. We only had space for 12 slots so tickets sold out instantly! See a review of the game here.

Months of planning, building, play testing and work later – the time has come.

The exhibition opens on Weds 17th February, at the Stirrup Gallery in Marrickville. The exhibition is open during the day 18-21st Feb (Thurs-Sun) with the heist game running after hours.

We have a diverse range of artworks on display so come along and check it out – I am incredibly proud of the quality of work we’ve all come up with!
