All wel­come to school art show

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Royal Oak Pri­mary School’s an­nual art auc­tion kicks off this Fri­day, show­cas­ing work from pro­fes­sion­als and stu­dents alike.

This is the fourth year the auc­tion has run with all funds go­ing to the school.

Last year’s auc­tion was a hit with around $10,000 raised from a se­lec­tion of unique art­works in­clud­ing a gi­ant jar of Mar­mite.

This time around, the auc­tion will fea­ture work from renowned artists in­clud­ing Sam Mathers, who was in­flu­enced by Pi­casso’s art while work­ing in Lon­don.

It is not the first time Mathers’ work has gone un­der the ham­mer at the school’s auc­tion, with one of his pieces fetch­ing more than $4000 last year.

As well as nu­mer­ous pro­fes­sional pieces, there will be art from the school’s par­ents, staff and stu­dents up for grabs as well.

Prin­ci­pal Lin­ley Bruce says the auc­tion is a great chance for the school to con­nect with the com­mu­nity.

Fri­day’s auc­tion be­gins at 7pm in the school hall with cham­pagne, canapes and a cash bar.

Tick­ets cost $20 per per­son or two for $30.

Phone 624 2800 for more in­for­ma­tion or to or­der tick­ets.
