Let’s get HAPPY with 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace as they share some incredible work from over 45 International and Australian artists.

19 Karen Contemporary Artspace’s group exhibition HAPPY is a bright, upbeat offering in a world that is sometimes a little dark. What makes you Happy?
“When I thought about our next group, I knew I had to come up with a fun, happy title because we always have fun when the Sofitel Hotel hosts our group shows and everyone walks away happy.The year 2015 was full of unhappy world events and so to create a positive and happy vibe for 2016, I thought why not keep it simple and call our group show HAPPY? So I asked the artists participating in the show to create artwork that best describes what makes them happy. The results, as you can see, differ from artists to artist. Hopefully their statement explains in more detail what makes them happy.” ~19 Karen Contemporary Artspace Director. Terri Lew
