CONSTANCE A.R.I | VISUAL BULK | Good Grief Studios

Please join on Saturday December 15th at Davey Street Congregational Church, 47 Davey Street, between 3 pm – 11 pm, for a major fundraising event and artwork auction presented by three of Hobart's key initiatives supporting emerging and experimental artists - Constance, Visual Bulk and TV Haus.
The event will include a major artwork auction, live music, food, beverages a market and other activities.
The majority of artwork sales will be conducted through a silent auction. However, at 6 pm there will be a live auction of a selection of prominent works. The auction presents a unique opportunity for collectors to purchase work by leading Tasmanian artists at affordable prices, whilst also supporting an important fundraising initiative.

The live auction will include works by:
Raymond ArnoldPat BrassingtonGeoff Parr Neil Haddon (Winner Hadley's Art prize 2018) Amber Koroluk-Stephenson Michael SchlitzLucy BleachJohn VellaTom O'Hern Tricky Walsh Mish Meijers

The silent auction will include the work of around 50 emerging, mid career and established artists.
This event is particularly special because funds raised will be supporting not one, but three, emerging and experimental arts initiatives in Hobart all at once! All three organisations work very hard, and entirely voluntarily, to create crucial early-career creative opportunities for Tasmanian artists.
Funds raised through this event will be matched dollar-for-dollar through Creative Partnerships Australia.

Thank you for your continued support of the arts and we hope to see you on Saturday the 15th December!
