The irrepressible Vipoo Srivilasa has organised an auction to support the Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal to assist victims of the flooding in Queensland.
According to Vipoo, "After watching the terrible footage on the news about the Queensland flooding, I was so moved I felt like I had to do something, so I went straight to the Appeal web-site to make a donation. However, I didn’t feel like I had done enough, but being an artist I can only afford so much by way of a monetary sum, but then I realised I could donate my artwork instead! Then I thought of an art auction to make the donation a bit bigger.”
Ceramicists have responded wonderfully. Already 40 of best Australian and overseas ceramicists have donated work to the cause.
The auction will happen online at ebay.com.au from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th
February, 2011. You can preview the work by following the link at Vipoo’s web-site: www.vipoo.com.
