When: 3rd- 26th July
The opening of the 2nd annual Collectors' Edition drew a great crowd at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre. This fundraiser exhibition supports the Cultural Centres Collection Acquisition Fund. Many artworks by prominent artists are for sale through silent auction which runs for 3 weeks.
The artworks are all A5 in size and this year the exhibition has 80 works on display. This is an opportunity to acquire an affordable artwork of some of the regions prominent artists including Warwick Fuller, David Middlebrook, Joan Ross just to name a few!
Despite the cold weather, it was great to see so many people come to support the event. Wine & conversations flowed, bidders registered for the auction and placed their prospective bids beneath the artworks. If you're one of the bidders, its advisable to visit the gallery over the 3 week period to see if you're still the highest bidder!
Thanks to supporters of this event for their sponsorship. A special thanks to Neil Haigh of Hopetree Framing in Wentworth Falls.
I donated an artwork for the exhibition and titled it Alpha Penta 1. It is an assemblage work with natural materials on paper. It was exciting to see a few bids on the piece before the night was over.
So make sure you visit the Cultural Centre over the next 3 weeks to view this collection of unique and pocket-friendly artworks!
