For Art's Sake 2011
Disability support group FRANS will hold an anonymous Art Exhibition & Fundraiser at Sydney College of the Arts, Rozelle from Wednesday 28 September - Saturday 1 October.
In past years the event has featured over 400 canvases by a range of artists of varying skills and background, all for sale at the same starting price. Professional and emerging artists, celebrities, hobbyists and people with a disability were asked to create and donate works for the exhibition.
Entrants were provided with a blank canvas on which to paint, draw, paste, plaster, sculpt or sew.
I chose to hand felt a landscape entitled Afternoon Walk - Budawang, using hand dyed tissue silk and merino wool and silk rovings, which was then stretched over the canvas.
