On Friday the 21st of June, NQCC celebrated our biennial Fundraising Postcard Art Auction for 2019!
Approximately fifty art/environment lovers attended the event at Umbrella Studio (Townsville City), where each of the seventy works generously donated by artists from near and far were auctioned off for prices ranging from $10 to $105. The pieces were postcard-sized (though some were a little larger) and environment-themed. This event saw our five-week long exhibition, titled "Insights Into Our Environment" come to an end. Luckily for you, the artworks are still available to peruse in our online gallery.
Laughs were had, bargains were bagged and plenty of funds were raised - all for environmental conservation here in North Queensland! Guests enjoyed wine, punch and nutritious, delicious nibblies.
We would like to shout out a huge THANK YOU to all of the artists, volunteers and Umbrella Studio who made this event such a success! We would also like to thank all those who came along to support the event, and those who purchased artworks (including those who bid via proxy).
