Artists in Arms hit Northbridge

THE former Berlin nightclub, on the corner of Roe and Milligan Streets in Northbridge, will get a new lease on life next month, when not-for-profit group Artists in Arms (AinA) transform the space into a temporary art gallery. The group held its inaugural exhibition for charity last June at the All Pike Motors showroom in Mount Lawley, which raised over $40,000 and a few surprises, when up to 1,000 people spilled from the venue on opening night. Lord Mayoral candidate Max Kay will open the three-week exhibition, sponsored by Calibre Projects, on August 10, which will feature works from over 80 artists in the fields of ceramics, paintings, sculpture, textiles and multimedia. One-third of proceeds from the sale of each work will go to charities Youth Focus and Mercy Ministries, with the rest of the money going to the artists themselves. AinA manager Fran Vos said the exhibition space could hold up to 300 people and would be open to for private corporate events from August 10-31. The group will continue to hold one major exhibition each year alongside smaller events in country towns. For more details visit www.artistsinarms.com
