Fledgeling Skyfire Studio – a new gallery, workspace, and home of a mysterious underground supperclub nestled within Leichhardt’s Italian Forum – is now the first to run a guided gallery tour-by-bus focused on the Inner West area. Skyfire’s “Leichhardt Gallery Tour-By-Bus” will be one part wine tour, one part exhibition, and one part lesson on art buying.
Designed to neutralize the intimidation factor that often prevents otherwise interested art buffs from becoming bona fide collectors, this bus tour is formatted as a lighthearted but insightful romp through Sydney’s lesser known arts cradles. By structuring “art” as an accessible thing, and making learning about it a social event, Skyfire hopes to create regular visitors to the area who are more naturally culturally fluent.
The five hour tour will visit galleries in Leichhardt and surrounding suburbs, stop for lunch at a local restaurant, serve wine throughout the tour and even provide espresso at the tour’s conclusion. All this for a mere $60! Register your interest or secure your seat on the bus at www.skyfreart.com. Seats will sell out fast!
