Art auc­tion to raise funds for youth at risk

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Art -

ES­CAPE Art Ex­hi­bi­tion and Auc­tion is an an­nual event sup­ported by the Ro­tary of Craw­ley.

This year or­gan­is­ers are aim­ing to raise more than $25,000 for Street Con­nect, a lo­cal out­reach pro­gram for at-risk and home­less young peo­ple, and Youth Fo­cus, which pro­vides un­lim­ited free coun­selling ser- vices in the hope of pre­vent­ing youth sui­cide.

Event di­rec­tor Ale­cia- Jane Twig­ger said all artists con­tribut­ing to the ex­hi­bi­tion were pas­sion­ate about th­ese causes and had ded­i­cated many hours to pro­duc­ing beau­ti­ful works of art.

“Ab­stract artist David Giles and street artist Jerome Daven- port have stepped up to help us out. They’re of­fer­ing art­works that would usu­ally sell for thou­sands of dol­lars in the hope that they will as­sist us in rais­ing as much money as pos­si­ble for our causes,” Twig­ger said.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is from Septem­ber 22 to 26 in the Cen­tral Park foyer, St Ge­orges Ter­race, Perth.
