Sweets Workshop…sweet, sweet, sweet!!!

I must have driven right past Sweets Workshop in Summer Hill countless times on the way to and from work and never knew it was there. It is a gorgeous little gallery space and store that specialises in illustrations, graphic design and all sorts of wonderful goodies from both Australian and International artist and designers. It wasn’t until last week, when I received an invitation to the Pen & Pencil Exhibition by Pam French that I discovered it. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to drop in. It may be a small space but it is jammed packed with so many great things.

The current exhibition at Sweets Workshop is Pen & Pencil, by Pam French which is on from the 12 March – 6 April 2011. Her work is intricate and her love of the bush and nature is clearly evident. The exhibition has a mix of large botanical drawings, illustrations of people and drawings from imaginations based on shapes, thoughts and dreams. The detail in her work is beautiful.

There are so many wonderful illustrations, cards and books in Sweets Workshop, in so many different styles. I would be genuinely surprised if anyone can walk into this gallery/shop and walk out without making at least one purchase!! I certainly didn’t have the willpower to resist the visual candy that is all over the walls and I ended up buying 2 gorgeous artworks. One print by Emma Simmons “Coffee and Sweets” which is a street scene in Summer Hill and a whimsical illustration by Mechelle B called “Henrietta”. The best thing about Sweets Workshop is that it gives everyone the opportunity to buy some really great artwork because it is affordable, so you won’t be paying off your credit card for months to come.

I love it and will be back soon… I have heard that Emma Simmons is having an exhibition there soon…Can’t wait!!!!
