Presented by Jenny Morris, ART OF MUSIC is a unique and dynamic event combining both visual arts and music. A group of prominent contemporary visual artists come together to create an original artwork exhibition. Each artist chooses an iconic song to inspire a piece of artwork which is then auctioned during a gala dinner in the spectacular Grand Court of the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
2018 artists presenting works for auction are: Ben Quilty, Guy Maestri, Holly Greenwood, Joshua Yeldham, Laura Jones, Leila Jeffreys, Lucy Culliton, Luke Sciberras, Nicholas Harding, Yvette Coppersmith. Performers include Mark Seymour (Hunters & Collectors), Ainslie Wills & Julia Jacklin.
ART OF MUSIC [Facebook] is one night only, Saturday 23 June 2018. 6.30pm at Grand Court, Art Gallery of NSW. Ticket includes: exhibition viewing/cocktail party, gala dinner and artwork auction. View the artworks here.
