Alex Currie aka Runt, the artist behind the local favourite Lee’s Palace mural, curates a show of fellow “indie outsider” artists at Steam Whistle Brewing. Showcasing five established artists, each with an unmistakable style, “Hanna Barberic” features the work of Mike Parsons, Menno Krant, Runt, David Irvine, and John Abrams. Although each artist has a unique style, all share the same love of pop culture, film, music, urban life, and art at-large.
The Opening Night Party will take place on Wednesday January 9th 2013 from 7-11pm at Steam Whistle Brewing at 255 Bremner Blvd or visit the brewery during all of January to see the exhibition.
