ROBROS: the best of pals in all the galaxy

Last week, I mentioned Jim Billy Wheeler's exhibition ROBROS, which was on all last week at SHOP on Christmas Steps. I didn't think I'd get a chance to see it, but as luck would have it Jim held a closing party from around 7pm on Thursday so I scurried down there after work. I was the first to arrive, giving me a chance to get a good look at Jim's adorable renderings of C-3PO and R2-D2 doing best pal activities together: sharing a milkshake with two straws, relaxing in a hot tub and - my favourite - making shadow puppets (I'm dying to get my hands on that one to hang on my wall but sadly had no money at the time).

From Jim's Facebook
There was free cider from Tricky Cider and a rousing performance by the Beau Ties, a Bristol-based a capella quartet with the sweetest voices. I found myself toe-tapping amongst a sea of strangers. The atmosphere was merry as Jim's friends (and me!) all rallied round him. It can be a bit daunting to go along to these things by yourself, but I'm glad that I did.

You can find Jim's work over at his blog and listings of other exhibitions going on in the SHOP artspace at their website.
