RIPE Live is back! Join us as we launch Pear Drops at the Alfred Arcade and a solo show by Ben Top­ping at the Hid­den Wardrobe.


RIPE Live: Pear Drops / Ben Topping will feature a showcase of new works by local and emerging artists, plus a live DJ set and drinks at the Alfred Arcade and the Alfred Arms.

Pear Drops is a short-term residency project that aims to encourage artistic and professional development through a series of skill sharing activities.
For this third Pear project the Ripe Pears, who exhibited at the Alfred Arcade last summer, have reconnected and developed both individual and collective outcomes, culminating in a group exhibition.

The project is a hybrid of digital and physical exchanges and art-making, and provides participating artists with the opportunity
to remain connected and optimistic in these challenging times.

We will also be celebrating the launch of a new solo exhibition by Ben Topping in the windows of the Hidden Wardrobe, which will also include an artist talk with Ben.

Plus, you can have a drink, food and enjoy some music at The Alfred Arms from 8pm. Music will be provided by Address – DJ Collective and Ginkgo's!
