Earlier this year I was honoured to be involved in this Charity event for ICE
Project Five returned in 2013 with Volume Five, look presented by aMBUSH Gallery and Darling Quarter. Featuring the work of Australian artists Adnate, pilule Jodee Knowles, sick Numskull and Rone, Project Five launched in September as an associated event of Art & About Sydney.
With a portfolio of four volumes, sixteen commissioned Australian artists and over $52,000 raised for charity, Project Five is back with Volume Five, featuring Adnate (VIC), Jodee Knowles (WA/NSW), Numskull (NSW) and Rone (VIC).
Join aMBUSH Gallery as it ushers Project Five Volume Five into its new home in burgeoning creative hub Darling Quarter with a three-day live painting event on Darling Quarter’s Village Green. The four featured artists will transform Darling Quarter into an open-air studio from 6-9pm on Friday 27 September as they paint before their public audience, and will continue from 12-4pm on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 September.
Over four weeks, Project Five will present a series of art events, including an exhibition of works by the featured artists at OPEN – aMBUSH Gallery and Darling Quarter’s free public art space, a series of free kids’ urban art clinics facilitated by World Famous Westsyde, and an invitation-only auction of the works created during the live painting weekend. All proceeds from the auction are dedicated to the development of the Information and Cultural Exchange’s (ICE) youth arts program. Over the course of Project Five’s previous four volumes, ICE has benefitted in over $52,000 in proceeds from the auctions, an achievement of Project Five that was recognised in the 2011 National AbaF Awards.
