Art Sniffers - The New Trend?

I can't say exactly why but while I was out at this exhibition opening at the 'new' Chalk Horse Gallery, William Street Darlinghurst, for some reason I was suddenly possessed by the urge to start a whole new blog called Art Sniffers! Was it the ear-wax aroma of the fresh white paint that had set me off? Was it the artworks themselves? Well I do like this show.. Was it the windowless underground, basement location? I am not really sure but; if you look closely at the pictures it almost looks like the art patrons bending forward for a closer look.. well they could almost be sniffing the art! And if you have ever painted in big smears of oil paint; you will know that art sniffing is pretty heady stuff.
