Frequently Asked Questions

We will open artist registration in the coming months.
Can I buy Incognito Art Show art online?
No, all artwork from Incognito Art Show 2021 will be sold at the Verona Studio 1 - 17 Oxford St, Paddington on the 5th of June 2021 from 8am.
Where and when is the sale?
All artworks will be sold to the public on Saturday the 5th of June at the Verona Studio 1, 17 Oxford St, Paddington. The doors will open at 8am and close at 8pm. If there are still artworks left over, the sale will open again on Sunday the 6th of June at 10am.
Where do I review the art?
All returned artwork is displayed here.
The art will also be on display for physical viewing the day before the sale; Friday the 4th of June at the Verona Studio 1, 17 Oxford St, Paddington.
What are the sale day rules?
There are three key rules to the Incognito Art Show sale:
- Artworks will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis.
- Buyers are restricted to buying up to 3 artworks each.
- All artworks will cost $100 each regardless of who the artist is.
How should I prepare for the sale day?
There is going to be a lot of art and not much time to sell it. To prepare for a fast and smooth buying day, the Incognito Art Show team strongly encourages all potential buyers to review the artwork before sale day and come with a (long) list of your desired works.
Please thoroughly review the artwork online and/or in person in advance of sale day. Take personal note of the associated number of the artworks you would like to buy (make a long list!).
Get to the Sale Day early. There is likely to be a queue. If you want your first shot at your desired pieces, you have to get there early. Remember there may be people with similar tastes to you!
Bring appropriate clothing as it may be cold.
Last but not least, please be patient and polite on the day. All people working on the Incognito Art Show are volunteers. It has been a huge amount of work and in terms of the volume of artwork we have received, we could argue it’s been TOO successful. There will likely be waiting so be prepared for that.
I’ve heard of Incognito before. Is this a new idea?
No, ‘Incognito’ projects have been run all over the world. There’s a great one run in Ireland to raise funds for the Jack and Jill foundation. Another one in the UK run by the Royal-overseas-league to raise money to support the work of the ROSL Trust. There’s Incognito in Canada by the Langley Arts Council.
It's a tried and tested concept that has proven successful in helping to support various charities and organisations. We can't wait to bring Incognito to Sydney for the first time and do our part to give back.
Does the Incognito Art Show profit from the sale?
No, Incognito Art Show is a not-for-profit organisation. All profits made by Incognito Art Show sale in 2021 will go to Studio A.
What happens to unsold artwork?
We’ll hold on to it and sell it at next year’s Incognito Art Show. We anticipate a sell out so don’t worry about your artwork not selling!
