Margaret River Art Auction success

For the last 4 years, the Margaret River Art Auction has been held to raise funds for the Nyindamurra Family School located just south of the town in the South West of Western Australia. The auction has quite a number of contributors, some of whom are well established artists.

As the Principal is a friend of ours, I donated a recent photo of a Redgate Storm to the Auction. Printed and framed it was about 1.2m wide.

I was pleased not only that it raised $625 on the fall of the auctioneers hammer (3rd highest price) but that out of 70 art objects I was placed 2nd in the People’s Choice award. This recouped the cost of printing and framing.
