Art auction in support of Japan

Rosebed St Gallery is small gallery in a small town near us called Eudlo.  The Gallery is holding a 2-day online eBay auction to raise funds for Japan following the tsunami back in February.

The auction will take place on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 October (Australian EST). That is, next weekend.

NEWSBREAK!! - It looks like bidding has begun on some pieces, so if you are interested, please head on over via this link and join in the fun. I have my eye on a piece....

Both Barry and I have donated pieces to the auction and you can see the 'catalogue' for the auction here.

If you email them, they will keep you up to date with the auction action. Promise.

Our friend Kim Schoenberger has also donated some raku ceramics, and another friend Christine has also donated some artwork.

Here are our pieces in case you are interested...

Proceeds from the auction will go the Sunshine Coast's Sister City in Japan - to the mayor of Tatebayashi and will be distributed from there to artists in and or near Fukashima, which is in the prefecture next to Tatebayashi. Its about trying to replace so many art supplies which were lost, and to give people a little bit of hope and creativity, rather than just the absolute necessities of life.

Please support it if you can...


  1. Of course I LOVE the leaves..... but it would be hard to go past that clever folding Fiona.
