MGA Gala Fundraising Auction Preview 2017

20 April 2017 to 29 April 2017

MGA’s Gala Fundraising Dinner and Auction: Eden makes an important contribution to the gallery’s fundraising efforts. It brings together people from all parts of our community – business groups, Councillors, community members and gallery supporters who love art and contribute to the success of this key fundraising event.

Art Auction
The highlight of the evening is a lively and competitive art auction of generously donated works by prominent Australian photographers, as well as in-kind donations from corporate sponsors across the hospitality and arts sectors.

The works being auctioned are visible in a short Preview Exhibition at MGA from 20-29th April.

You can also see the artwork auction items online here

The funds raised on the night will assist the gallery’s operations by contributing towards artist and exhibition fees; free education programs; and conserving works from our collection.
