A number of charities in the UK make an enormous contribution to the support of young Australians studying in the UK, to the promotion of educational and cultural exchanges between the UK and Australia, and to furthering the work of iconic Australian charities. The Australian Charity Art Auction will offer artworks by Australian artists or which feature Australian subjects and themes. The artworks will all have been donated from private collections, principally in the UK.
The artworks will initially be offered for on-line silent auction bidding throughout a two week period leading up to the final reception event, which is to be held at the Australian High Commission in London on Tuesday 28 February 2017. They will be on display for two days leading up to the event, and a small number, selected by the Advisory Committee, will be offered at the event by live auction, to be conducted by a Christie’s auctioneer.
