Sidewayz Art Exhibition Opening Party

May 27th, 2011

 

After a two year hiatus, the Sidewayz Art Exhibition returns to Sydney. In keeping with the original format, there will be a display of artworks used on skateboards and snowboards auctioned off to raise funds for charity.

Opening at the National Grid Gallery on Saturday 4 June, Sidewayz contains the artwork of over 50 artists from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. The opening party will be held on the Saturday night, from 6pm, and all are welcome. The exhibition will run for 6 days, closing on Friday 10 June.

For the first time Sidewayz will be including the work of snowboard companies GNU, K2, Roxy, Ride and Yes. A mix of emerging and established Australian work will be available for silent auction, representing a fantastic opportunity to get your hands on some snow/skate culture items. The National Grid Gallery is located at 24 Chard Road in Brookvale, Sydney.

The funds raised from Sidewayz will be split between The Christchurch Earthquake Appeal and the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund.

“We are really stoked to reintroduce Sidewayz at our Opening Season party this year”, Nathan Buhagiar co-owner of Balmoral Board said. “Sidewayz has always been a great initiative and really brings out the generosity of the board sports community.”

“We’ve always wanted to see it as an exclusive exhibition,” said Sidewayz Exhibition manager John Saulo. “Simply everyone joining together for a good cause. This year it is great to see the snowboard industry getting behind the exhibition and bringing the stoke from a different angle.”

Some samples of the work on display have been included below. For a complete list of contributing artists, history of the Sidewayz Exhibitions and all other info please visit the Facebook page: facebook.com/sidewayz.art.exhibition
