|Venue:||Royal Exhibition Building,Carlton|
The Art Melbourne show offered both collectors and newcomers alike an easily accessible opportunity to view a wide variety of art styles, mediums and content. From paintings and sculpture, to new media installations and art objects, the artworks were affordable and the exhibition attracted art lovers from around the nation and from overseas.
Adding to Melbourne’s vibrant art scene, the show featured over one hundred galleries, artists’ studios, and thousands of new artworks.
Many of the artists were available to chat about their artworks with all the art enthusiasts who came to visit studios and gallery stalls while at the show.
I was delighted to meet so many talented people in one space. Everyone was there to share a passion for art and design. It was so inspiring to experience that expression of passion, and to see such talent on display.
We were fortunate to visit with exhibitors from as far afield as China, Japan, and the UK, as well our neighbours from New Zealand. It was fascinating to spend some time with, and chat with so many passionate artists and designers throughout the show. I was especially fortunate to have some wonderful conversations with artists in the Studio area of the show too.
It was these conversations that have inspired us here at Quantum Compass to add a whole new focus to the regular ArtSHINE blog…
A new and additional weekly feature: The ArtSHINE “Close Up” series.
With this series we’ll share knowledge and experience, as well as promote Australian artists and spread the word about creativity. Both Vinh Van Lam and Stuart Horrex at Quantum Compass have a commitment to assisting artists and artisans gain greater recognition for their work, and create the business lifestyles that will serve to sustain their art practices. That’s why the ArtSHINE project was initiated.
