Snip, Slice, Saw

If you didn't get to see these guys at C3 for the Australia Project, they're having a second outing at Hand Held Gallery's next exhibition Snip, Slice, Saw.

If you haven't been, Hand Held is a great gallery. I've seen some surprising and really lovely shows there. Surprising because I didn't know there there are so many artists making beautiful small scale works in Melbourne. And surprising also because it's in a really strange location. It's upstairs in a modern but almost deserted shopping centre on the outskirts of Chinatown.

Hand Held Gallery opened in August 2008. Hand Held is an object and artist book gallery with a collection of books, zines, posters, postcards, paper arts and eclectic objects. Hand Held is also an exhibition/installation space available to artists for solo or small group shows and installations. (from the gallery's blog)
