Last night I went to the opening of Art Sydney, which is a yearly event. It's on at the Royal Hall of Industries (next to Fox Studios) this weekend. The exhibition is huge and shows a diverse selection of both established and up and coming artists.
Unfortunately I don't have the scoop on the fabulous artists whose work I saw because I had a tired 4 year old in tow who was trying to carry a glass of lemonade (I know, bad mother, but they didn't have any water and she was 'really, really thirsty mum!!!') while walking on a concrete floor and being bumped into by hundreds of champagne drinking art lovers. I did love the paintings by an artist is known as 'dirtfish' - there was no other name on his business card or website. His work appeals to me because it's textural, layered and graphic.
The following images are Roxy's photos of the event:
I love this photo (below) which I took of the girls enjoying a giant octopus-like inflatable sculpture.
Get along to Art Sydney this weekend if you can - it's huge and inspirational, some of the art is quite affordable and it's very much worth the effort. Info about the event can be found here.
