The National Trust's Mornington Peninsula Branch is holding its inaugural Exhibition and Auction of pre-loved art, on 3 December at the Peninsula Community Theatre, Mornington. Viewing will commence at 11.00am with the auction at 2.30pm.
Paintings, drawings, prints and etchings in both traditional and contemporary themes, many by renowned artists, have been generously donated by its members who have downsized in recent times and no longer have the capacity to hang all of their art works. The works are offered to support of the Peninsula Branch’s ongoing fundraising endeavours for the National Trust’s Foundation which cares for the restoration and conservation of the Trust’s Mornington Peninsula heritage properties: Mulberry Hill in Langwarrin, The Briars Homestead in Mt Martha, McCrae Homestead in McCrae and Endeavour Fern Gully in Red Hill.
This event offers the public a rare opportunity to obtain a work of excellence at auction bidding. The works will be on display from 11am, with auction at 2.30pm. Along with the artworks there will also be a small range of gift cards, art books and historical journals on sale (not auctioned) and a door prize of a pure silk Moet & Chandon ladies’ shoulder scarf in its original box.
All are welcome – come along for the fun of the auction or with cheque book, credit card or cash (all accepted) to bid on a new piece of art for your walls.
