For the second time this year, the vibrant Rainbow Studios space is adorning its walls with the work of two spectacularly talented people. First up, it was Clare Dubina and Kate Florence's in-tandem show Being, which took over the corner spot to see out summer's heat. And the next is no less special: a collection of joint works from the duo who work under the fresh and fun moniker Gelbell, Angelica Wootton and Bella Greene. The vibe? Rich hues, long-limbed figures and a floaty expression swept across the canvases.

From Thursday, March 23 till Thursday, April 6, Gelbell's collection titled Never Never Land will be exhibited in Rainbow Studios' Darlinghurst digs. Thick brush strokes of fuchsia meet lofty tones of blue, starry cowboy boots hold nimble legs and abstract hands hold martinis — the works are rich with feelings of sunny days and melting Paddle Pops stickily dripping down sun-kissed arms.

Deliciously, the clever tastemakers — and fellow Harbour City locals — at Ester Spirits will be pouring on-the-house martinis on opening night. From 6pm on Thursday, March 23, you can enjoy your arty surrounds, drinking in the talent of the pair of the moment, all while sipping a crystal clear 'tini. It's set to be a special one, Sydneysiders.

If you can't make it on Thursday, feel free to drop in during opening hours (10am–3pm Wednesday–Friday and 10am–2pm on Saturdays), or arrange a private viewing by appointment throughout the two-week exhibition.

Never Never Land takes to the walls of Rainbow Studios this March, with an opening night event — complete with martinis courtesy of Ester Spirits — on Thursday, March 23 at 6pm. The event is free to attend, though you're encouraged to register your attendance prior.
