.M Contemporary opens!

Despite it being the coldest night in Sydney this year with horrendous traffic and rain we had an amazing turnout of more than 150 people at the opening of .M Contemporary by Michelle Paterson. Friends, neighbours and fellow supporters of the arts came together to support the opening which was held in conjunction with the opening of Levitate, a well-thought out body of work by incredibly talented South African artist, Lyndi Sales. Our guest speaker Professor Jill Bennett from COFA (College of Fine Arts) summarised Lyndi’s work and the content with such delicate clarity that it was a privilege to hear. We would also like to thank Barry Keldoulis, CEO and group fairs director of Art Fairs Australia, for taking time opening the space and his ongoing support.

Thanks all for attending, it was a great night!
