Art collectors and art lovers across Gippsland and beyond are invited to join us for a spectacular auction event on Sunday 15 March when a selection of 200 works go under the hammer for Art Aid Gippsland.
Hosted by The Wedge at 100 Foster Street, Sale, the event kicks off with registrations at 3.00pm for a 4.00pm commencement of the auction.
Our auctioneers on the day will be Guy Cairnduff from Leonard Joel’s auction house in Melbourne (and formerly of Sotheby’s), and Sale’s own Cr Darren McCubbin and estate agent Leo O’Brien.
The auction includes artworks of all styles, shapes and sizes, with a piece to suit every budget. Artists of all abilities and levels have donated artworks, including local artists Annemieke Mein OAM, Klara Jones, Tony Hanning, Hendrik Forster, and Dawn & Chris Stubbs to name a few, through to nationally renowned artists such as Yvette Coppersmith (winner of the 2018 Archibald Prize), Louiseann King, Nick Mount, and Tony Lloyd.
All profits will go to support the Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund (GERF).
The live auction follows on from a four-week preview exhibition at the Gippsland Art Gallery, which has drawn thousands of curious visitors. Pre-bidding on artworks is now available by following the link from the Gallery’s website (www.gippslandartgallery.com), where visitors will find the full range of 802 artworks available for viewing and bidding. Donations of artworks for Art Aid Gippsland were received from all parts of Australia and internationally to support those affected by the 2020 Gippsland bushfires.
