Art Alight!
Fundraiser for the victims of NSW Bushfires

Over 50 homes have been destroyed and 54,000 hectares of land (an area the size of Greater Sydney) have been turned to charcoal in unprecedented bushfires in the Warrumbungle National Park and surrounding areas. Wildlife and stock animal numbers have been decimated.

Artists and art lovers – we need your help!

Verge Gallery and the University of Sydney Union are holding a silent art auction on Monday February 4, 6pm to raise badly needed funds. All proceeds will be distributed to the local community through the Warrumbungle Shire Mayor’s Bushfire Appeal (see http://www.emergency.nsw.gov.au/content.php/1080.html).

Artists – please show you care and donate a work to this show (email g.shapley@usu.usyd.edu.au or phone 0403 127 398 to arrange drop off). Every cent raised will go directly to those who need it most.

Art lovers – come along for a night of art and entertainment and help a worthy cause. There will be over 100 works on sale (some from well known artists) so it’s also an opportunity to pick up a bargain.

Bar and entertainment provided.
