Hugo Michell Gallery Open: Kate Just + Min Wong

As part of Kate Just’s exhibition PROTEST SIGNS featuring hand knitted homages to protest signs around the world, Just has created a piece to raise funds for charities working on the current Ukrainian humanitarian crisis.

This unique artwork is a hand knitted Ukrainian flag mounted on a plywood board with a Tasmanian oak picket stick. The words PEACE – in black – are knitted into the flag design.

To raise money and go into a draw to win this work, Just is inviting individual members of the public to donate $50 or more to one of three charities:
