Who are the Aussie artists on your radar for 2015?

Blouin Artinfo listed their top twelve and we are thrilled to see some familiar faces, including Tully Arnot, whose solo exhibition opens at Artereal Gallery this March as part of our Art Month Sydney program.

On Tully Arnot's work, Nicholas Forrest writes; "The Sydney-based artist is best known for investigating the intangible relationships we have with objects and illuminating new, poetic ways of interacting with the world around us. 2015 was a big year for Arnot who was announed the winner of the inaugural NAB Private Wealth Emerging Artist Award for his innovative work "Nervous Plant, 2014" which consists of an artificial plant animated by motors attached to the base of each branch. Artereal Gallery will present a solo exhibition of Arnot's work as part of Art Month Sydney's March 2015 program."

Among the other twelve listed include Artereal favourites Michael Staniak, whose body of work, Slow Pictures, was exhibited at Artereal Gallery in June 2014, and Ken & Julia Yonetani, who have shown several solo exhibitions at Artereal Gallery since 2011. 
Tully Arnot's solo exhibition opens at Artereal Gallery Wednesday 4 March 2015 at 6.00PM and runs until Saturday 28 March 2015. As part of Art Month Sydney, Artereal Gallery will join forces with dLux MediaArts on 21 March 2015 to bring Sydneysiders a mini festival in the Rozelle Contemporary Art Precinct. The festivities will kick off with a public talk between Tully Arnot and Art Fair Director, Barry Keldoulis, and will be followed by a series of other talks and an outdoor film screening of IS THIS ART?.
