Art auction to raise funds for youth at risk
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.
