We Know Nothing About Art
A Comedy Show
March 18, 2017


Do you love art? Does art confuse you? Have you ever though that art historians could just be making everything up on the spot? Join comedian Abdul Aziz and his friends Brent Constantine, Ross Dauk, Chris James, Devin Alexander, Jenny Toews and Charlie Demers as they do their best to make sense of the world’s most treasured works of art, with little to no formal training in the field (or training of any sort actually… to be honest, we’re seriously considering going back to school).

Graham Clark presents…
This Is The End
March 10, 2017


Graham Clark presents… This Is The End. This is Graham’s final show at HAWC. We’re not entirely sure what he’s doing but it’s SOLD OUT and there’s NO REFUNDS so it doesn’t really matter. He’ll likely show pictures and clips he found on the Internet and a best-of from his past shows. His guests are Sophie Buddle and Aaron Read.

This Is The End
Art & Craft Social
March 8, 2017


One final Art & Craft Social at Hot Art Wet City before the gallery closes at the end of March. This is a crafternoon and art jam all rolled into one. Bring a small creative project such as stitching, sketching, crocheting, whatever you’re into. The event is an opportunity to bring together a cross-section of makers, crafters, artists, designers (and all those other titles creative people give themselves), to knit, sew, collage, draw, or paint while they socialize and share. Hosted by Rachael Ashe.
