'UN SOLO' debut solo show by Tom Henderson w/ live music from Grace Turner
An art show, but with live music- so let's call it a gig. Either way it looks pretty good.

The show will feature semi-abstract work with bold lines and colours to match and it marks a turning point to a more concise and striking way of Tom expressing his style.

Catch the show at ALCHEMY (488 Hunter St) on Friday the 25th of August from 6 -8pm

THEN the after party is at The Edwards from 8pm in the beer garden (so as soon as the show wraps up) till late. There’ll be projections of Tom's work on the walls and huge prints hanging that would have been a bit too big for Alchemy. Plus there’ll be live music, merch and more tasty beverages, it’s gonna be like ‘UN SOLO DUO’!

When: Friday 25th August
Where: ALCHEMY (488 Hunter St) + The Edwards
Tickets: free entry
