Black Coffee in Newtown is hosting the Institute of Refuge in Art exhibition. Each piece has been created using discarded artworks. All recreated artwork will be up for sale over the week with 50% of the proceeds going towards Vinnies Wellington social services. Have a chat with Carmel from Black Coffee if you’re interested in any of the work. There’s something for everyone with a variety of techniques and materials including digital print, collage, acrylic paints. In some the background of the original piece shows through while in others it’s almost completely obscured.

The cafe has two pinball machines, lively music, and sun streaming through the windows – it’s a good way to start the day.
