On the Rocks is a 3D art exhibition bringing together photography, design, music, food and drinks within a virtual rendering of a home. The exhibition has been designed to bring together artists and creatives from Concrete Playground photographer Kate Shanasy's area who might have lost a source of income or exposure during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each piece of the exhibition has been designed around the theme of 'on the rocks', a fitting reflection on the turbulent year many of us have had. Some of the artworks include photography of natural rock sites from around the world, unique flower and plant arrangements, and coloured glassware, with music from Liam Alexander of Colour nightclub soundtracking your virtual walkthrough.

Food has been supplied by Mia Coady-Plumb, head chef at Oh, Loretta and drinks by Campari, however, they are virtual so for the full experience, you may have to supply your own. Thankfully, Coady-Plumb has provided recipes, so it's easy to whip up exactly what you see.

The exhibition is free to attend, which you can do so directly on Kate Shanasy's website, where you can also buy prints of her artwork or book her as a wedding photographer.

On the Rocks will run online until Friday, December  18.
