Artworks featured are part of the Incognito Art Show.

An Anonymous Exhibition Featuring Top Australian Artists Where All Works Are $100!

2nd June, 2021

The Incognito Art Show features 1,000+ postcard-sized artworks by Ben Quilty, Julian Meagher, Laura Jones and more – for $100 each. First in, best dressed!

There are many fantastic art charity initiatives going around these days, but none are quite like the Incognito Art Show.

At 8am this Saturday, Verona Studio #1 in Paddington will open its doors to the public with 1,000+ artworks by some of Australia’s best established and emerging artists.

Earlier this year the Incognito Art Show put a call out for any artist to submit a work to the exhibition. Big names the likes of Ben Quilty, Julian Meagher, Laura Jones, Abdul Abdullah, Paul Davies, Reg Mombassa, Jasper Knight and Nicholas Harding have painted original works on A5 cards, which will be displayed alongside the works of emerging  artists. But here’s the catch – each piece is anonymous! Artworks by top Australian artists and those lesser-known alike will all be for sale for $100. The names of the artists are inscribed on the back of the card, which are not revealed until after purchase.

All the profits from the art show will be donated to Studio A, New South Wales’ only supported studio for artists with an intellectual disability. The enterprise help their artists overcome barriers in the art world, such as accessing education and professional development pathways.

‘Studio A is an organisation I’ve worked closely with over the years,’ says artist and co-founder, Laura Jones. ‘Their artists contribute immensely to arts, culture and the greater community. I’m so happy to be involved in a project delivering tangible fundraising outcomes for the work they do.’

All artwork is sold on a first-come-first-served basis, and sales are limited to three artworks per person.

We love this excellent initiative!
