Anonymous Artists in ‘Incognito’

The Incognito Art Show is an initiative fuelled by artists and art lovers from all around Australia to champion the artists of Studio A, a Sydney based arts company that provides professional development for artists with intellectual disabilities. In this fundraising effort, creatives are asked to submit postcard sized artworks to the group exhibition, but there’s a catch – none of the artists, from Australia’s leading names to amateur artists, will be identified in the showcase.

With works priced competitively it’s a unique threefold opportunity for the art curious to be guided by taste and intuition, support the important work of Studio A in the process, and perhaps find a ‘bargain’. Art collectors, once you purchase a work the identity of the artist will be revealed! To get an idea of the array of works on offer, check out the gallery of last year’s work.

Last year’s show was a sellout, works are priced competitively and all profits will go to Studio A.

While artworks will be displayed online ahead of the in person event, you must attend in the flesh to purchase. There are three rules to abide by at ‘Incognito’;

  1. Artworks will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis.
  2. Buyers are restricted to buying up to 3 artworks each.
  3. All artworks will cost $100 each regardless of who the artist is.
