Keen-eyed Aussie blog Tough Titties boosts female talent weekly by highlighting cool new things by women around the country, be it art, or music, or anything. While they've already been selling things and generally rounding up the word from women with talent, they're taking their first step into polite society with their first exhibition at Surry Hills' Somedays Gallery.
The site has gathered up 20 women with a special commission for its first show, A Touch of Class, with each artist asked to draw, print or otherwise create something cool on giant paper doilies. Contributors include poster-making typographer Georgia Perry, radical cross-stitcher Rayna Fahey, animal-sketcher Lucy James and Bianca Chang, whose intricate, precise work cutting fine curves on paper has just popped up in non-doily form at Showcase as well.
Tough Titties wants to help you. They've already made you a tough-minded, legally correct guide to flirting. That this exhibition fulfills your need for oversize, artistic table furnishings is only another step in their mission to bring good things into your everyday life via women with talent. The medium may be doilies, but the content is all hard art.
