Unfortunately, Amanda and I will be missing out on all the fun, so make sure you check it out for us.
Last week Tiny Paper Hearts attended Verge Twilight Markets & Zine Fair at Sydney uni once again. It was nice night, a tad lacking in zines but still nice and with ample friendly faces. It was also our 1 year anniversary of crafting, so feel free to send us flowers and ginger candy to our P.O. box (seriously).
P.S. panda wants to also say thankyou to all the zinesters and otherwise who came over and swapped or just chatted, in my opinion it made up for the abominable lack of twilight cocktails.
Amanda and I were lucky enough to be part of the sQuareOne art 4 auction held at Mori Gallery on friday where our art was auctioned off. It was very exciting and nerve wracking and a great night all round. There were some amazing artworks up for auction.

Don’t forget This is not art zine fair will be on again this year in Civic Park in Newcastle on Sunday 5th of October and the stalls are FREE for zines makers, so make sure you book a table before they are all booked out.
Have a lovely week my little goos!

Here’s just a taste of some of the stuff we’re working on for an upcoming art auction in September.
It’s being held at the Mori Gallery (168 Day St Sydney) to raise funds for the art space SquareOne which is a project run by the non-gov, non-profit youth media + arts organisation Vibewire. The actual exhibition and auction is on September 13th but if there are any kids out there who want to donate their mad skills in the form of art you have up to September 1st to send or hand it into SquareOne in Ultimo.
The deal is:
“We are asking artists to donate a work of art. It may be of any size
or format, but we ask that you send us a description of the work
incuding it’s title, dimensions, media, and if possible, a photograph.
All works will be auctioned on the night; 80% of the money raised will
go to SquareOne, & 20% will go back to you – the artist.”
If you want any more info about this email natalie [at] vibewire.net for all the details. Either way you should pencil it into your diaries, it looks like it’ll be a great night.
Opening night was pretty great! Heaps of people came and all in all everyone had a great time. The vegan gingerbread cookies and fairy bread I made were a hit (Maddy & Natalie also made fairy bread and cupcakes yum yum!), and were gone before I could even get some. The place was decked out in really awesome works, Chris Tamm did an amazing job of it all. I feel very lucky to have been given a chance to be a part of it. Exhibition is open till the 20th of May, 10am – 5pm daily at Pine St Gallery in Chippendale.

Coming up: MCA Zine Fair. Its going to be huge.
This is a very exciting exhibition that Chris Tamm is organising (and exhibiting in!) for all us D.I.Y. lovers. Think zine-makers, street-artists, urban photographers, counter culture, politics, cave kids and other counter-culture freaks in a show and tell exhibition.
