The threat of chance art exposition is based on the temptation of possibility. The possibility of change in the face of stagnation, the possibility of hope in desperate times, the possibility of alternative thought and lifestyle in the doldrums of complacency.
For this installation a railroad shanty town has been recreated to further emphasis the struggle between hope and despair. Amidst a gallery filled of shacks made with found material and walls decorated with freight trains and decaying industry you will find photographs by boxcar culture enthusiast the Polaroid Kidd. Proletarian signs, flags, prints, and banners from author/activist Josh Macphee. Interactive sculptures, drawings, paintings and stencils, from graffiti artist Billy Mode, and the sociological display of hand cut stencils by Chris Stain. The Threat of Chance art exposition is pure socialist propaganda, (at least that's how the mainstream will see it) , so stop by opening night and they'll tear you a new asshole.

Just a quick note to say hi & let you know I have a solo exhibition happening at The Art Traders.
It's called Welcome to my Neighbourhood.
'Inspired by the local characters in her neighbuorhood – Darlinghurst – Wendy Murray introduces her vision of the people and places which define her ‘hood, with a freshness and sweetness, not often associated with grunge, grime and anonymity of the inner city' - Fiona McIntosh, The Art Traders
The show includes all original artwork, including silkscreen works and delicate cast-plaster compositions.
The show runs until 26 April 2008 - still plenty of time to check it out!
Over the past few months I have completed several independent art projects, commissions and workshops, including a stencil art workshop at the MCA.
I have also collaborated with many folks including Daisy Linhares of LA based Bread and Butter, The Darlo Bar, Little Joe by Gail Elliott, Lisa Ho, LOVE#3 Cafe and David Jones. Check out some of these projects & more atwww.wendymurray.com.au
Thanks for your continued support!

Portions of the sold art go to benefit the SLO County Bicycle Coalition.
Last year we raised $1000 dollars and only had it for 2 weeks. This year we have two galleries for the wnole month. We will have events at both the galleries all month long so I hope to double our fund raising.

As a kid you could walk into a candyshop and get caught be this amazing feeling of “crackforyoureyes”. That is the same feeling you experience decades later. The beloved candystore has turned grey with Jellybeans of concrete. Seeing treats that other people neglect is what makes living in the urban playground so interesting. Your city is not always my city...
