The flagship event for PICA’s award-winning donor program, the annual Salon Vernissage celebrates contemporary art, music, food, drink and fashion in a uniquely PICA way.
In 2021 the Vernissage will launch Love in Bright Landscapes – a curatorial case study of Perth and Los Angeles, told through the work of artists living, working, hailing from, or passing through the two west coast cities. Many works will be for sale on the night, offering the opportunity to begin or grow your art collection, and in keeping with PICA’s commitment to supporting artists in as many ways we can, all sale proceeds will return directly to the artists.

This exclusive and much anticipated celebration has developed a reputation as Perth’s signature art event, with highly sought-after tickets only available to 200 of PICA’s closest supporters. We’ll be bringing a taste of LA and a touch of glamour to PICA for one night only, and you can join the party. This is your invitation to dress up, drink up and eat up, all while growing your network, your art collection and your impact.
