The whole of Australia experienced catastrophic bushfires from late 2019 and this has continued into the summer of 2020. Many organisations have raised money to aid those who have suffered great loss as a consequence of the fires.
Simon Gregg, director of Gippsland Art Gallery, Sale, has organised an art auction to raise money to help those who are in need. He invited artists to donate one or two works to be auctioned on 15th March after an exhibition of selected works from 15 Feb - 15 March at the gallery, an undertaking that is both inspiring and enormous. For more information about the auction, see HERE
The generosity from artists has been so great that no more donations can be accepted! What a remarkable response.
The two paintings below are my donations to the cause and let's hope the auction yields something beyond our imagination.
