Supporting and encouraging artists from the local community is an ongoing commitment for The Galeries as it continues to blur the boundaries of the conventional retail experience, combining contemporary art with cutting edge technology. In partnership with Lenovo The Galeries will enlist the skills of four emerging street artists , Bianca Beers, Cherie Buttons, Furry Little Peach and Ox King (who have worked with the likes of Netflix, Stussy and Nike) to Pimp Your Paper at the pop-up wrapping station on Ground Floor. Each week one of the artists will be on hand with Lenovo’s latest YOGA book to help create to create customised wrapping paper for everyone who spends over $100 at The Galeries. Designed and printed just for you.
Using Lenovo’s YOGA book customers are invited to flex their artistic skill and create their own masterpiece for entry to win a YOGA Book each week of Gifted. Simply visit the ‘The Garden of Inspiration’ where stationery, scrapbooks and crafting materials wait in abundance ready to inspire your entry and help you get creative.
With an alternative take on the traditional gift guide, each of The Galeries four laneways will be transformed by Gifted artists into a visual wish list with illustrations of gifts available from The Galeries retailers. There is something for even the hardest person to buy for with a specialist laneway devoted to gifts under $100, solving all your Kris Kringle woes.
The festive season is all about giving, and The Galeries is no exception. Take a picture of any gift on your wish list from any Galeries retailer for your chance to win it.
