Gippsland Art Gallery - Art Aid


Gippsland Art Gallery has been inundated by artists and donors wanting to support the fire relief effort by submitting artworks for a fundraising auction - Art Aid Gippsland. All money raised from the art auction 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. A selection of artworks will be displayed at the Gallery from Saturday 15 February to Sunday 15 March culminating in an auction on the final day, on Sunday 15 March.


Throughout my early years as an exhibiting artists many of the exhibitions and events I was apart of were in the Gippsland region, partly due a supportive auntie who owned a gallery in Leongatha. I also would take frequent surf trips through Gippsland which made it easy for me to visit galleries and arrange the showing of my artworks. The important role that the Gippsland community has played in my success as an exhibiting artist and the connection I have to the area through family made it a no brainier for me to make a donation of artwork to the Gippsland Art Gallery, Art Aid Gippsland auction. I have donated two collaborative skateboard artworks that I painted with Megan Dell, who also has strong family ties to Gippsland. I have donated 100% of funds from their sale to the Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund (GERF). 

I do not know at this stage if the works will be on display or if they will be live auctioned or auctioned online. If you are serious about purchasing them, it would be best to get in contact with the Gippsland Art Gallery. I will update this post when I receive further details.
