SNO 110 – Fundraiser Auction 30 Nov 2014

SNO (Sydney Non Objective) Contemporary Art Projects is soon to celebrate its 10th birthday as one of Australia’s foremost artist run initiatives. As a biennial fundraising event, SNO organise an auction of artworks donated by emerging and established artists from Australia and overseas in order to maintain and further develop SNO’s ongoing projects. For SNO 110, Gallery 9 will host the auction and SNO’s birthday celebrations on Sunday afternoon 30 November.

SNO Contemporary Art Projects is an artist run initiative based in the Sydney inner city suburb of Marrickville. It was set up in December 2004 to provide an alternative critical position within contemporary Australian art supported by a curated public exhibition and education program.

To date there have been 109 monthly exhibitions showing over 350 artists from Australia and overseas. In developing these programs, SNO has established a number of important projects. These include a particular focus on providing support to young and emerging artists, the development of international networks with similar artist collectives in Europe and the USA, a resulting series of international exchanges and exhibitions, the inclusion of a parallel sound work and performance program and regular lectures and seminars aimed at increasing awareness of contemporary non objective art.

The auction will feature works by over 40 Australian and International artists and will provide a special opportunity for new and established collectors to acquire high quality artworks at very reasonable prices and at the same time provide support for the ongoing SNO projects.

Curators’ Floor TalkSun 19 October at 2pm

The landscape has been a significant aspect of Australian painting and continues to resonate in our consciousness metaphorically and as a presence, backgrounding a range of concerns and experiences for artists and the broader population alike. Sublime Point: the landscape in painting will demonstrate a wide variety of approaches to and uses of landscape in contemporary painting with some interesting intersections as well as differences. This exhibition intends to show how artists are featuring landscape in their work as a signifier for aesthetic and cultural issues and understandings.
