Unknown Art Exhibition

Fri 31 March - Mon 3 April

Based on the national Incognito Art Show, Unknown is an inclusive, community art exhibition…with a twist.

Unknown aims to increase the profile of regional arts, financially support local creatives, provide beginner and emerging artists with an opportunity to exhibit their work, increase regional access and exposure to the arts, as well as inspire a new generation of art collectors and supporters through affordable art.

So, what’s the twist?

All artworks are exhibited anonymously. Only once an artwork is purchased will the artist’s name be revealed to the buyer on the back of the artwork.

Every piece of artwork is the same size and will go on sale for $100, regardless of artist – beginner, emerging or professional.

The exhibition will be on public display at Forbes Town Hall from Friday 31 March until Monday 3 April 2023.
