here is the press release for Now We Do Shellac at the Sassoon Gallery behind Bar Story tonight from 6 pm for the private view
come and see my crocheted/weaved set of nails puss many more ...
Now We Do Shellac is an exhibition of Nail Art at Sassoon Gallery, Peckham.
Peckham is home to a thriving and expanding creative community alongside over 30 Nail Bars.
This exhibition sees these two worlds collide and celebrates the revival of this unique practice in
an exhibition of work created directly onto false nails.
Wonderhammer have invited a range of creative talent, alongside local nail technicians to reimagine
this process, put their skills to acrylics and explore the full potential of these miniature canvases.
Shellac is a resin secreted from the female lac bug. Discovered over 3000 years ago on the barks
of trees in India, the same substance is now commonplace in nail bars throughout the world. This
exhibition explores the evolution of a process and is a closer look at an intersection of creativity
Now We Do Shellac at Sassoon Gallery will showcase for the first time this ongoing exhibition
project. Follow the project at www.nowwedoshellac.tumblr.com
