Welcome to the first-ever online art fundraising auction hosted by Newcastle Art Gallery Foundation in collaboration with 18 extraordinary local artists.

The pandemic has caused many of us to pause and rethink our approach. That is why this year we are embracing the digital world to raise funds for Newcastle Art Gallery, connect with supporters and embrace our hard-hit artist community. They have created these new collectable works during the lockdown.

The Love of Art Online is an opportunity to purchase works by these acclaimed local artists while supporting the Newcastle Art Gallery Foundation. The event will be hosted on the secure Galabid platform, which works a bit like eBay. You make a bid, there is a reserve, and at 7pm on 8 September the highest bid above the reserve will successfully purchase the artwork.

The Love of Art online auction will run from 28 August through until 7pm on 8 September.
Artists will receive 70% of the proceeds of the sale of their work and 30% will support Newcastle Art Gallery Foundation.
 
For now, all you need to do is register, tell your friends and explore the artists behind this exciting range of new work.
 
A series of visual portraits featuring the artists discussing their works have been created in collaboration with the Peninsula Project. To gain an insight into the artists and their works visit loveartnewcastle.com.au.
