On September 12th, MONA held a gala dinner to raise much needed funds for the Australian Childhood Foundation, with the goal to create Tasmania's first community-funded, state-of-the-art child trauma centre; a safe place where children can rediscover their childhoods and leave behind the deep and damaging pain of abuse.
A big thank you goes to artist, Stuart Clues, for kindly donating one of his gorgeous paintings at this event which brought in under the hammer $6,500 to benefit this wonderful cause.
If you would like to find out how you can help too, please go to www.childhood.org.au/our-work/tasmanian-child-trauma-centre.
Congratulations goes to Katherine Cooper for receiving a $10,000 dollar cheque for her work entitled 'Out to Lunch' at the much anticipated opening of the Holmes Art Prize, Australia's first bird-life art prize!
A celebration of the arts, Gallery Salamanca's mission is to support and serve artists and craftspeople by engaging the community through the sale of arts and crafts and the promotion of exhibits in Hobart. Our purpose is to support, preserve and commemorate Australian, specifically Tasmanian, handmade works and their makers.
