Australian art auction to benefit bushfire victims

Art Press Release from Australia. Published by Rebecca Gabrielle Cannon on Wednesday 18 February 2009.

On February 25th Chapman and Bailey Gallery will host an art auction to assist a family who lost everything in the recent Victorian bushfires. Maree, mother of Jacqui, Mark, Rebecca and Luke Stockdale and her partner George were forced to flee their beautiful house with nothing, not even a hand bag when the raging inferno hit the Bendigo area.

Like many others they returned to find nothing but ashes. The artists want to raise enough to help them to start again.

With some of Australia’s most collectable contemporary artists donating work to this fundraiser, this is an excellent opportunity to enhance your collection whilst directly assisting a family that survived the bushfires.
