2nd November, Torquay, Victoria -The Quiksilver Foundation is hosting an Art Show & Silent Auction fundraiser at Quiksilver's headquarters, 27 Baines Crescent, Torquay on Friday 16th November 5 – 9 pm. Funds are being raised to enable disadvantaged children to participate in the 2013 Vegemite SurfGrom's program. We have invited 30 local artists to join us in exhibiting their art for a silent auction as well as two limited draw art raffles. Art, photos and sculptures will be displayed in the Atrium, a space that truly lends itself to an exhibition of this kind.
An open invitation has been extended to the local community to come and enjoy an evening that will suit the whole family. There will be a sausage sizzle, wood fire pizza, a bar full of cold beer and local wine all at family friendly prices. Join current and five time world surfing champion Steph Gilmore and former world champions Tom Carroll, Martin Potter and Mark Richards who will be mingling with the artists and the guests. The kids can borrow a skate board and try their hand at tarp surfing whilst adults can have a drink and bid for their favourite piece of art.
In an exceptional show of generosity, two prominent local artists Nick Morris and Jenny Laidlaw have donated paintings for 2 limited draw raffles. Nick Morris' original artwork "Win" is a typical Morris composition, acrylic on canvas 1000mm x 1500mm valued at $4000. One hundred tickets will be available to purchase at a cost of $40 per ticket. The art will be on display at the Quiksilver store at as of Tuesday 27th October. Jenny Laidlaw's original mounted & framed artwork "Full Spectrum" 750mm x 650mm is valued at $1680 with only 200 tickets available at $20 per ticket. Jenny's art will be on display at the Roxy store from Tuesday 27th October. Tickets can be purchased prior to the event through either the shop or on the night if not sold out.
Bidding for the silent auction will be open to the public from 5pm on Friday 16th November and will be closed at 8pm sharp that evening. Successful bidders will be announced that evening. Both the Morris and Laidlaw art raffles will also be drawn that evening.
