Salmagundi Joins the MOSTrail

Salmagundi Joins the MOSTrail 

Salmagundi studios will open its doors to the public as part of the Marrickville Open Studios Trail (MOST) on March 9 and 10. It’s a prime opportunity for gallerists, collectors and lovers of art to explore studios and meet artists.

Salmagundi means a mix of random elements. It’s also the name of a type of stew cooked on pirate ships. True to its name, the Arncliffe warehouse boats a diverse mix of over twenty artists. Many have post graduate qualifications and exhibit regularly on the local and international stage.  A range of media is represented at the studios, including painting, sculpture, jewellery, print making, performance, installation and animation.

To celebrate the open weekend, the Salmagundi gallery space will showcase major works, a 9.5 tonne truck will be transformed into an outdoor sculpture and refreshments will be available.

A barbecue for all MOST artists will be held on Saturday, 9 March from 5.00pm at Salmagundi, and you are welcome to join us for that too.

WHEN:     9 & 10 March 2013, 11.00 a.m. – 4.00 p.m.

WHERE:  49 Bonar Street, Arncliffe

"If you wanna fly, you gotta give up the shit that weighs you down." - Toni Morrison
Do you dream of flying? When presented with the dilemma, "fight or flight", is your first instinct to opt for the better part of valour? Have you, through necessity or expedience, had to flee a situation or locale? Do you indulge in flights of fancy? When about to embark on a flight, do feel excitement, anticipation or dread?

An obsession for artists, dreamers, visionaries and inventors throughout time, analogous for ambitions and fantasies, and now such a common practice it's positively mundane. But next time your heading on a flight, just remember you're sitting in a 400 tonne machine, flying through the air, 11 kilometres up in the sky, at around 900 kmh - the correct reaction is FUUCK!
