Current Exhibition

A Real Shoemozzle Foundart by Peter Shoemark
One of the great quandaries facing an artist when staging an exhibition is what to call the exhibition. Not so for local junk sculptor Peter Shoemark, who was using a shoe theme, so “A Real Shoemozzle” seemed a logical name and besides what could go wrong?
The original exhibition was scheduled for Nov 2021, however lockdown masked those plans, so now the exhibition will proceed on 17 March 2022 at Gallery ONE88 in Katoomba, with the opening on the 19th.
