If you don’t have plans this week, make them, because Verity Lane Market is hosting a Winter Solstice Festival until this Saturday 25 June.
In partnership with Projection Art, Verity Lane is projecting a collection of four indoor and outdoor experimental artworks across the walls of the food hall.
The exhibition Circle will see four immersive artworks that provoke thought and engage your senses while highlighting the Market’s iconic building and architecture.
“This exhibition will offer an immersive experience that invites the senses to be curious for discovery and reflection,” says CEO Centre of Projection Art, Priya Namana.
“Through their existing workings, the artists – Tina Stefanou, Yandell Walton, Peachey & Mosig and Liang Luscombe – tell a different story focally, around the themes of water and futurity. These practices deeply consider and respond to their urgent concerns around nature, labour and identity.”
Also overlapping with the exhibition is Verity Lane’s renowned Truffle Week, beginning Friday June 24 until Saturday July 2.
Once again, the week will see all four of the Market’s vendors showcase a week of exclusive truffle-infused dishes. Think potato, truffle and prosciutto pizza from Pizza Artigiana, truffled spaghetti carbonara from Pasta Artigiana, shoyu truffle ramen from Ramen Daddy and more!
The truffle theme will also continue through to the bar with a Unico Zelo “Truffle Hound” Nebbiolo, as well as a spectacular truffle Negroni made with truffle-infused gin from Canberra’s Underground Spirits.
Encouraging Canberran’s to get out and about winter, Verity Lane Owner Phillip Kier says there is plenty to be excited for.
“All too often we hear that Canberra is not a nice place to be in winter due to the weather, when in fact it’s a fantastic place to be! We want to give people a reason to celebrate it, rather than run away from it,” he says.
“Winter Solstice at Verity Lane is a festival that celebrates art, the building, the season and the food all in one. It’s going to be a fantastic few days!”
