ART OF MUSIC returns with some of Australia's Most Iconic Songs Inspiring our Best Visual Artists!

DON WALKER, MISSY HIGGINS AND SUNNY AMOREENA CONFIRMED TO PERFORM

Jenny Morris together with Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy are delighted to once again bring one of Sydney’s most unique and dynamic fundraising events, Art of Music, to the Art Gallery of New South Wales on Saturday, 14 June, 2014.

From the overwhelming success of the inaugural event in 2006, Art of Music has become one of the most anticipated events on the calendar and is a biennial event which combines the mediums of visual art and music.  Eleven  prominent contemporary visual artists from Australia come together to create a uniquely music inspired exhibition with each artist choosing an iconic piece of Australasian music, using it as inspiration for their own  original artwork, culminating in the Art of Music Charity Auction and a sumptuous Gala Dinner, with some very special guests and live entertainment.

The field of amazing artists presenting works for 2014 are Giles Alexander, Lucy Culliton, Nicholas Harding, Fiona Lowry, Guy Maestri, Amanda Marburg, Ben Quilty, Luke Sciberras, Alexander Seton, Leslie Rice and Michael Zavros.   Bio information on each of the artists, as well as their chosen piece of music (see below for full list), can be found at www.artofmusic.com.au/artists.

Art of Music 2014 will also include three very special musical performances highlighting the works of art on display on the night.

Don Walker is legend in Australian music and a man who needs no introduction.  As Jerry Lee Lewis once said, great singers sound like they’re telling the truth and that’s a line that fits Don Walker to a tee. From Cold Chisel to his hugely successful solo career, Don Walker is a musician’s musician and Art of Music is thrilled he has agreed to perform on the night.

Also generously giving up her time to appear is multi-ARIA Award winning Missy Higgins.  Singer/songwriter Missy Higgins has struck a profound chord with Australian music fans with her irresistible melodies, ‘arrow through the heart’ lyrics and a voice that clearly means it and Art of Music welcomes and thanks Missy for generously supporting the event.

Sharing the stage on the night will be Sydney based singer/songwriter, Sunny Amoreena, who will be performing one of the songs on display on the night.

"Art of Music first came together because of my love of music and the visual arts," said Jenny Morris.  "I have lots of friends in both areas and I thought I could push my friendships with them to help out.  Now, 8 years on, the event has gone from strength to strength and I’m so proud to be able to help such a great cause”

All proceeds from the Gala Dinner and Charity Auction go to Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy who transform lives through music. Registered Music Therapists use the power of music in live and interactive sessions to help people cope with the struggles of living with a wide range of needs. These include children and adults with physical and intellectual disabilities, autism, trauma, illness, dementia, behaviour disorders and learning difficulties.
