Home Bushfire Relief Art Auction Fundraiser
Time Out says
More than 60 artists are auctioning off their work at the National Art School to raise money for the bushfire relief efforts
While the devastating natural disaster that has spread across Australia this summer has been heartbreaking, it's heartening that so many people from different walks of life have gone above and beyond to do their bit for the bushfire relief efforts. For more than 60 members of Sydney's creative community, that has meant donating original artworks for a bumper auction at the National Art School.
Major luminaries such as Mike Parr, Hiromi Tango, Caroline Garcia, Ben Quilty, Jenny Kee, Tony Albert and Gemma Smith are among the artists who have contributed paintings, photography and sculpture for the fundraiser on February 12. The works will be exhibited in the school's Main Gallery on the night, but from February 4, you can view them online and bid in a silent auction that culminates at the event.
Aside from the exhibition, attendees will enjoy sets by DJs Client Liaison, Club Kooky's Gemma, Marcus King and Tyson Koh, as well as food and drink provided by Love Can, Cake Wines and Young Henrys. Registering on Eventbrite is recommended as the event is expected to sell out. Entry to the event is by donation, with all proceeds from the door and the auction going towards three charities: WWF Australia, Climate Council, and Firesticks Alliance which promotes Indigenous cultural land management practices.
