Courage & Strength is the title given to the exhibition and silent art auction of a group of local artists to raise money to assist Saita Lasini-Tuaoi with the opportunity to play rugby in France.
All of the pieces that are for auction have been donated by the artists and the reserves have been set. The winning bid above the reserve wins the piece. There has also been support from local businesses in the donations of prizes for the raffles that will be held on the night.
Entry to the event is $10 per person, children under 14 free and includes live music, nibbles, complimentary drink on arrival and more.
There is also another exhibition opening on the same night, as Art & Design Precinct launch The Loading Bay Gallery as an exhibition space. ‘Director’s Cut’ is a collection from artists hand selected by the gallery directors, Grant Hiscock and Michelle Bowden.
The art auction is open for the whole weekend and both exhibitions are open for one week. There is free entry, after opening night.
