This year, for the first time, our Glenaeon Art Show went digital due to COVID-19. Thanks to the hard work of our talented and dedicated Class 4 Art Show Committee and our Events Coordinator Clare Gordon, the Art Show was transformed to the digital format, and brought together over 200 art pieces, from 80 artists for display online from 1-22 November. We also held an online silent auction featuring works from our current students, and ran a digital Raffle.
51 pieces of art sold for $20,830. In the silent auction, our student works raised a fantastic $5,890 and the Raffle generated over $3,500 in ticket sales. The winners have now all been notified. The funds raised by the GPA will support the school and the students. Huge congratulations and thanks to the artists, and to everyone who donated their time, and supported this year's Art Show. We are very grateful and indebted to Glenaeon Parents Jonathan Rush, Airlie McConnell, Tanya Baker, Erika Hosoyama and Lisa Kavanagh for their kind and generous donation of time and skill to see this important and event fundraiser so successful. It really was a mammoth effort. A huge thank you to our Raffle Prize donors Verve Photography, Honest to Goodness, Bunnings, Lyn Clifton, Warrah and the generosity of Class 4 parents.
If you are an artist and would like to make a submission for our 2021 Glenaeon Art Show, or wish to donate a prize next year, please email Clare Gordon to be added to our Artist Call out mailing list.
