We interviewed them back when they had just released their first issue, and the second issue has been out for a while now, but the one thing we’ve been waiting for has been the official launch party! Six Years Later, bitches, get onto it!
"Six Years Later is proud to present ‘Surface’. Its a launch party and exhibition to celebrate the second issue of the Six Years Later magazine. No ads, no articles… just art. We’ve curated a fantastic group show with 25 of our contributing artists to show-off their recent work.
On opening night you’ll be able to get your hands on Issue 2 of the 6YL mag as well as get some original artwork and prints by our super talented contributing artists. We also have to mention that they’ll be massive giveaways on the night. Our friends over at Afends and Boywolf have been super generous and have donated some of their hottest products worth a total of over $1000. How sick is that!?
For your chance to win a ‘Golden Ticket’ prize-pack all you have to do is donate a gold coin or make a mag purchase. Where is all this money going you ask?
Well! All, yes that’s right, 100% of our ‘Golden Ticket’ donations and an additional $3 from every mag sale will go towards The Artful Dodger Studios. They’re based in Collingwood and provide creative spaces for young people whose lives may have been affected by difficult circumstances.
It’s going to be a massive opening night with a little bit of music, a whole lotta of drinks and delectables and definitely heaps of great great art! Come be inspired, have fun, and get a tick on your good deed list. See you on Thursday!"
So join the Six Years Later crew this Thursday night as they display a whole heap of work from artists featured in the second issue – can’t wait!
