All the fun of the fair! It’s that time again when the Sydney Contemporary Art Fair rolls back into town and sets up at Carriageworks in the striking Eveleigh train yard buildings, near Redfern. With over 90 galleries participating this year from 13 countries it is a one stop shop for those looking to start or expand their collection or just take in what is happening on the global art scene.

Sydney Contemporary brings together an eclectic mix of the best Australian commercial galleries, international spaces and specially commissioned installation works. Keep your eye out for Installation Contemporary this year where sculptural works of varying scale are placed throughout the fair with the aim to challenge and engage the larger audience. While some galleries have tightly curated shows of one artist you will find that most galleries will opt for a mixed exhibition of works; thus allowing a mental note to be made of artists’ whose careers you’d like to follow.

There will be quite a number favourites on show too; look out for Brendan Huntley’s wonderfully quirky characters in ceramic and oil at Tolarno Galleries; Belinda Fox’s exquisite paintings at Arthouse Gallery; Miranda Skoczek has some fabulous new work straight from her studio at Edwina Corlette Gallery, and Olsen Irwin has a strong collection of works by Julian Meagher and Paul Davies.

If too much art is not enough, then you can also visit The Other Art Fair, with its emphasis on unsigned artists this will definitely be the place to pick up more affordably priced work.  The Establishment Hotel plays host to Spring 1883 this year, and sees galleries take over hotel rooms and common areas to exhibit work where site specificity is the name of the game.

All the fairs offers a great range of guided tours, workshops, lectures, kids activities and guest speakers; numbers for these events are sometimes limited so visit their websites and register your interest.

If you plan your visit Sydney Contemporary on Saturday 12 September you can also take in the gastronomic splendour of the farmer’s market held every Saturday morning from 8am – 1pm and then feast your eyes on over 10,000 square metres of art! Sounds like a perfect Saturday to us!!
