Salmagundi Joins the MOSTrail

Salmagundi Joins the MOSTrail 

Salmagundi studios will open its doors to the public as part of the Marrickville Open Studios Trail (MOST) on March 9 and 10. It’s a prime opportunity for gallerists, collectors and lovers of art to explore studios and meet artists.

Salmagundi means a mix of random elements. It’s also the name of a type of stew cooked on pirate ships. True to its name, the Arncliffe warehouse boats a diverse mix of over twenty artists. Many have post graduate qualifications and exhibit regularly on the local and international stage.  A range of media is represented at the studios, including painting, sculpture, jewellery, print making, performance, installation and animation.

To celebrate the open weekend, the Salmagundi gallery space will showcase major works, a 9.5 tonne truck will be transformed into an outdoor sculpture and refreshments will be available.

A barbecue for all MOST artists will be held on Saturday, 9 March from 5.00pm at Salmagundi, and you are welcome to join us for that too.

WHEN:     9 & 10 March 2013, 11.00 a.m. – 4.00 p.m.

WHERE:  49 Bonar Street, Arncliffe
