Past Events

Art Auction and Social Gathering

  As every year, our Foundation has organized an art auction and a social gathering and an opportunity to purchase paintings and meet and chat to our artists. This year’s event took place in the welcoming house of Mr. and Mrs. Rovski in the leafy suburb of Camberwell.

As in the past on similar occasions, a loyal crowd of friends gathered at the steps of Andrew and Gabriela’s house.

Nearly 40 artworks were auctioned, and quite a few were sold.
A few peripheral fundraising activities complemented the event such as the sale of Polish barbecued sizzling sausages, red and white wines, cake, tea and coffee.

The attendance was good, and some people came to meet friends at the social event involving art. Overall the whole event proved to be successful. 

Once again our big thanks to Gabriela and Andrew for letting us organize this event at their house.
