NSW Art Gallery Exhibition
My Sydney 2013
Abira’s Artwork titled ‘My Sydney’ was hung in the NSW Art Gallery. It depicts parts of Sydney Abira especially loves to visit.
Renowned iconic Australian artist, Ken Done, Countess Natalie von Faber-Castell and Archibald Prize People’s Choice 2012 winner Jenny Sages attended.
Supported by the oldest pencil maker in the world, Faber-Castell, the theme was My Sydney, with young artists encouraged to explore themes of landscape, both natural and urban, and draw inspiration from the Art Gallery of NSW’s much-anticipated exhibition, Sydney moderns: art for a new world.
Sydney has been a constant source of inspiration for artists, from the harbour shores, city vistas, parks and rivers, to the modern forms of the Harbour Bridge, and urban landscapes. The 2013 Exhibit will see the city’s irresistible beauty and majesty come to life as budding young artists illustrate what they love about the harbour city.
