PICA Salon Vernissage 2012

PICA Salon Vernissage 2012

A dazzling evening of art, fashion, music and performance hosted by Narelda Jacobs, Ten News Presenter

The PICA Salon Vernissage is the invitational opening night reserved for PICA’s ART1000 donors. Recalling the grandeur of the original 17th century French Salons, this event is a must for followers of contemporary art and those seeking insight into this exciting world. Featuring artworks for sale, it is the chance to acquire a prize work while also meeting the artists and other like-minded members of the arts, media and business communities.

In 2012, PICA is offering a contemporary interpretation of the Salon, transforming its Westend Gallery into a futuristic vision. With special styling wisdom from leaders in fashion, Dilettante, interior design gurus Empire Highgate, culinary geniuses Heyder & Shears, as well as live music and a special pop-up performance, the 2012 Salon Vernissage is certain to be a night to remember!

A select number of works will be offered for sale by Silent Auction. These works have been chosen by PICA for their exceptional quality and collectability. Two of these are new works that have been made especially by the artists for this year’s PICA Salon.
