In conjunction with Alpitye Art Studio (Alice Springs), Westpac Private Bank (Sydney) and the Bondi Public School (Sydney) two aboriginal art shows were held in October 2016 in Sydney.
The Westpac Private Bank art sale was held in their corporate head off at Barangaroo in Sydney, with a 30% of all art sales being donated to the Watarrka Foundation.
The Bondi Public School art show was organised by their P&T committee, with 30% of all art sales being shared equally between the School and the Watarrka Foundation.
Both art shows were an outstanding success and substantial amount of money was donated to the Bondi Public School and to the Watarrka Foundation. We thank everyone invloved in the organisation of these two wonderful events and especially to who purchased a painting.
The shows would not have been possible without Alpitye Art Studio who collated artworks from emerging and established aboriginal artists (Gloria Petyarre, Barbara Weir, Anna Price Petyarre and Selina Teece Pwerl), transported to Sydney and hung the many art works.
Barbara Weir, an internationally recognised aboriginal artist joined us for the opening at the Bondi Public School show and we thank her and all her artists for their support.
The Foundation plans to facilitate an art show in Sydney again in 2017. We will provide an update on the dates and location when available.
