A big thank you! MGA X Artist photography auction image

MGA X Artist photography auction was a huge success and we raised a phenomenal $100,900. The event was held at Roc’s, Jam Factory on Wednesday 26 May, luckily just making it in before Victoria was plunged into another lockdown.

Over 80 people attended the auction and through their incredible support, $47,025 of the funds raised will go directly to the artists, this comes at a time when this support could not be more vital. As some artists and collectors chose to donate the full amount to MGA, $53,875 of these funds will go directly towards MGA programs and exhibitions.

As we remain in lockdown we are so grateful to our incredible community of supporters and artists for showing us their support and providing us with so much stability through these times of uncertainty.

We would also like to thank our wonderful event sponsors, Village Roadshow, Arten, Smith & Singer and Transart.
