2013’s inaugural Sydney Contemporary art fair has drawn to a close with galleries, artists, collectors and the public happy all round. The four day affair from 19 – 22 September was full of great discoveries, surprises and people! The opening night quite literally stopped traffic – proving that the art scene in Sydney is as vibrant as ever.
Tim Olsen, director of Olsen Irwin, reported to Clive Paget of Limelight Magazine, “Sales have been extremely strong, defying the climate on the street,”… “After the first day of the fair we had at least 30 new faces in our stand that we’d never met before. Our experience has exceeded expectations – we’ve found it to be a vibrant event that was also a commercial success.” – Limelight Magazine
