ART AID FOR GIPPSLAND – Fundraising Exhibition and Auction for Fire Relief

Hi Everyone,

Artists everywhere are invited to help raise funds for the 2020 Gippsland Bushfire Appeal with ART AID FOR GIPPSLAND.

Gippsland Art Gallery is calling on artists to support the fire relief effort by submitting artworks for a fundraising auction. All artworks will be displayed at the Gallery from 15 February to 15 March, culminating in an auction on the final day, on Sunday 15 March at 4.00pm at The Wedge Performing Arts Centre in Sale (next door to the Gallery).

Artists may submit as many artworks as they like (no limit) in any medium and at any size (within reason please!).

All money raised will be donated to the Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund (GERF) to help support those who have lost their homes and property in the devastating East Gippsland bushfires.

Artworks can be dropped off at the Gallery during opening hours up until Sunday 9 February (we will begin hanging the following day). For those who would like to participate but are unable to get their artworks to the Gallery, please get in touch with us asap and we will do our best to arrange collection. Can you please complete the attached Artwork Form and drop off with your artwork, or you can fill one out when you come in (we’ll have some ready at the help desk).

The address for all deliveries is the Port of Sale, 70 Foster Street, Sale VIC 3850.

Please contact me at simong@wellington.vic.gov.au, or phone on 03 5142 3078 or 0432 899 703 if you need your work collected or for any other information.

And please spread the word! The more artists involved the more money we can raise so please forward this on to anyone you think might be interested.

A huge thanks to everyone who has already been in touch offering their support. Together, we can help make a difference for those who have lost so much.

Regards,

Simon
