An early look at the Pop Up Rogues works for sale | Photos, Video

HERE’S an early look at the gorgeous artworks for sale in Friday’s Pop Up Rogues exhibition.

The exhibition showcases 14 of the region’s best sculptures and will open for one night only.

This is the fifth year of the Pop Up Rogues exhibition, which sculptor Aileen Francis said started as a way for local sculptors to network and keep in touch.

“Because sculpture is such an isolated practice, it was set up to let sculptors get together and discuss materials and ideas,” she said.

Ms Francis said an earlier start this year was to prevent the “absolute bedlam” of previous years.

“It was hot and deafening and people couldn’t see. We discovered people wanted to come in beforehand and have a look,” she said. 

Pop Up Rogues starts at 3.30pm at the Parkview Hotel, with speeches, including a welcome by president Jaq Davies, starting at 6pm.

All works exhibited are for sale.
