Lepus Australis

Lepus Australis

I was reallllly starting to feel like a Melbourne local yesterday when I was invited by Sally Land and Emma Leonard to drop in on their set-up of upcoming show; Lepus Australis at the No Vacancy Gallery. They were hard at work! There were laser levels and the stringing up of no less than 100 origami bunnies! The exhibition is driven by Sally to bring awareness to the plight of the humble domestic (as in pet!) bunny in Australia and their battle against myxomatosis. And she is doing this in style with a show running from Thursday 4th-14th of July that includes work from powerhouse Aussie illustrators Kelly Smith, Lilly Piri, Laura Blythman, Cat Rabbit, Courtney Brims, Auf Wiedersehen, Megan McKean and SO MANY MORE! (I was a little gobsmacked!) Of course not to forget originals from Emma Leonard and Sally Land themselves.

Check it out if you can!
