Artists@Work: SiD 2012

Chairbiz’s emerging artists program, Artists@Work saw 10 Melbourne artists selected to produce artworks live, as part of The Project at Saturday in Design in Melbourne

Artists@Work: SiD 2012


August 29th, 2012

Visitors to Chairbiz on Saturday could wander over to Chairbiz’s neighbouring car park to view each artist producing their work on-site, to be auctioned off at the end of the day.

Each artist was selected based on skill, technique and authenticity of style, and turning out to see the culmination of this was a crowd of enthusiastic SID-goers and prospective bidders. Going under the hammer at 4pm on Saturday, the artworks were auctioned off to a selection of committed bidders.

Congratulations to winning artist Barbara Kitallides, whose work was chosen as being most outstanding on the day by judges, Miriam Fanning of Mim Design; Prof. Martyn Hook, Dean of Art at RMIT and DQ Editor, Alice Blackwood.

Also congratulation to People’s Choice Award winner, artist Grace McKellar whose work went to lucky recipient Louise Taphouse.

A second prize of one night’s accommodation at the Art Series Hotels was also raffled off Renee Moran.
