A big thank you for making the love of ART on-line auction a success
Our first ever Love of Art Online Art auction closed on 8 September and we are delighted to report it was a spectacular success. 17 works sold for $34,197 in total with 80% selling above the Artist reserve, and the majority well above. Of this 70% was distributed to the contributing artists which means more than $10,000 was raised to support Newcastle Art Gallery.
The pandemic has caused many of us to pause and rethink our approach. This year the Foundation embraced the digital world to raise funds for Newcastle Art Gallery, connect with supporters and embrace our hard-hit artist community.
Thank you to all those who bought or bid on works, the generous contributing artists and the many people who enjoyed viewing the wonderful online Artist interviews created pro bono by The Peninsula City Project. A HUGE thank you to them for their generosity and professionalism in bringing this project to life.
This wonderful collaboration again demonstrated the power of Art to bring people together and lift them up in challenging times.
THANK YOU everyone.
Newcastle Art Gallery Foundation Board
