I just dropped off the work 'Ainslie Deco- Pink' that I donated to the CCAS's Annual Fundraiser 'Quickdraw'- It looks like it's going to be a great night with fabulous artworks for punters to win!
If you would like to come along this Friday 17 November you can buy a guest ticket for $50 or a winning ticket for $250 go to: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/quick-draw-2017-tickets-38648051362#tickets.
From the CCAS newsletter...
Following from the success of last year’s unique fundraiser, Canberra Contemporary Art Space once again invites you to get involved in the fun. Quick Draw is a novel idea where the punter’s names are drawn from a hat and randomly matched with an artwork. There is a small gamble involved, as the price of a ticket buys a work, but no one knows what they will receive until their name is drawn!
This year you have the opportunity to take home an original artwork by some of the Australia's hottest established and emerging artists including:
Alex Asch, G.W. Bot, Robert Boynes, Mariana del Castillo, Jodie Cunningham, Marie Hagerty, Nicci Haynes, Sanne Koelemij, Waratah Lahy, Rosalind Lemoh, Dan Maginnity, Peter Maloney, Mandy Martin, Katy Mutton, Derek O'Connor, Millan Pintos-Lopez, Dionisia Salas, Erica Seccombe, Bernie Slater, Peter Vandermark, and the list goes on!
All funds raised will go directly to artists exhibiting at Canberra Contemporary Art Space’s Gorman Arts Centre gallery. Artists’ fees have always been a high priority for CCAS, and Quick Draw 2017 will ensure that these fees continue into the future. Comprised by 50 of Canberra's hottest artists in varying stages of their careers, Quick Draw is a fantastic way to get involved and support the Capital's vibrant cotemporary art scene. The event will start at 7pm on Friday 17th of November 2017, and CCAS will provide entertainment and food. However, due to Quick Draw being a fundraising event there will be a cash bar. The 'Winners Ticket'ensures you'll leave with an artwork, however if you'd just like to come for the party a 'Guest Ticket' is also available. Make sure to get in quickly, tickets are limited.
