Art Aid

25 artists from around Australia donate to help those without a home.

Join us for Art Aid 2021 and bid on a range of inspiring works generously donated by artists from around Australia.

In response to the housing and homelessness crisis faced by some of the most vulnerable members of our Northern Rivers community, local artist, friend of NRCF and founder of the Reality Check campaign, Liz Friend has rallied 25 reputed artists from across the country. With the help of local advocate Eunice Ching, Liz has launched Art Aid in support of those in great need during these challenging times. Committed to collectively recognising and positively addressing this situation, together they hope to raise much-needed funds to help alleviate this crisis.

Participating artists include 2004 Archibald Prize Winner, Craig Ruddy, well-known Sydney based artist Ann Thomson, neo-contemporary indigenous artist, Konstantina and contemporary environmental artist John Dahlsen.

Carlos Barrios, Amber Hearn, Hilary Herrmann, Gabrielle Pool, Emma Gale, Leah Thiessen, Amanda Schunker, Caitlin Reilly, Brent Hallard, Avital Sheffer, John Lloyd, Jonathan Kopinski, Ron Curran, James (Jimmy) Kearns, Nikky Morgan-Smith, Jan Rae, Dianne Ingram, Sylvie Kettle, Kitty Callaghan, Donna Malone and Liz Friend herself make up the impressive line-up of supporters donating their art from the heart to help those who need it the most in the Northern Rivers NSW.

All proceeds go to the Housing and Homelessness stream of the NRCF 2021 Community Grants Round which addresses the immediate needs of our community by providing financial assistance to community organisations supporting those in crisis.

Auction opens at 9am Saturday 11 September and closes at 9pm Sunday 19 September 2021.
