Karen Woodbury Gallery launched Nite Art with a speech by not the Lord Mayor (did you now there is a deputy?). The Gallery featured artist Magda Matwiejew's show Moonlight and Wax.

Art and Korean online shopping were hot topics but only until the clock stuck 6.

BOOM, into the cold and through the Flinders Lane Precinct.

Overall the work was amazing and exactly what you expect from Melbourne's art galleries.

Unofficially Flinders Lane Gallery is my new favourite place, serving Scotch Finger Biscuits, AMAZING choice, bloody amazing!  They know they was to this country kids heart! (I suspect also to old people and sugar addicts hearts.)
