To help both the FireFighters and the defenseless wildlife, Tap Gallery is holding a fundraising Art Auction this Sat at 5pm.
Entitled ""Artists to the Rescue" the Gallery will be taking submitted artwork from artists right up until Fri 24Jan 5pm. Artists are asked on registration to pay a reduced admin fee ($10 per artwork) and to donate a percentage eg 50 to 100% of the final sale to NSWfirefighters or WIRES.
On Sat the 25Jan, following a lowkey 4pm doors open, the fundraising begins with a live Art Auction and a silent auction operating in tandem. The live auction uses the classic model of registered bidders complete with paddles and pro Auctioneer.
Canapes and other finger food, plus a heavily subsidised bar are made possible by the generosity of our sponsors Emilia Pasta, Hotel Hollywood, Sydney Brewery, and Hotel Harrys is providing a 1 night getaway inc food/drinks as 1st prize in a $3p/tkt raffle draw.
Entertainment follows the Auction with Caberet Drag and Chanteuse Singing acts planned. Entry to the event is FREE, and artworks are on display at TapGallery prior to & including the auction night. We are hoping for an excellent turnout and spirited bidding so 'Artists to the Rescue' supports as many people and wildlife as possible!
About Tap GalleryThe Artists’ Paradise, or TAP for short, is one of Sydney’s longest-running artist-run spaces, also set in the Surry Hills area of Sydney. Established in 1989, it’s been at the heart and soul of Sydney’s burgeoning art scene for three decades, with regularly changing exhibits and the chance to talk to the artists about their work. Its entirely uncurated approach means that it’s open to artists of all genres to exhibit or perform their work, making it one of the most exciting galleries to visit in Sydney.12489432_1953755178183371_8389328960948235260_o
Established in 1989, TAP Gallery is and artist-run organisation, run by volunteers, with member’s subscriptions, donations and financial support.
TAP Gallery is an open-policy community art space providing a platform for all artists and community groups to voice their message. This includes emerging artists from the prominent local Arts Institutions close by, many ethnic community groups, charities and also the homeless and disadvantaged. TAP provides opportunity for these groups to have a voice, gain invaluable experience for the future and opportunities to raise funds. They are afforded freedom of expression; are given the opportunity to communicate to a wider audience, and in so doing, helps shift and broaden public awareness. TAP’s guiding philosophy and policy is to be inclusive of all.
TAP is an Incorporated Association (NON Profit) run by a steering committee who manage the space, administrate, oversee maintenance of the space, and help the artist present & promote their work through TAP’s comprehensive website.
TAP Gallery operates principally as an art gallery, and also stages drawing classes, film nights & occasional performance. The art gallery is open daily 12-6pm and is free to the public (50 hours/week). The performances are intermittent & often linked to the themed art exhibitions.
TAP has a long history of participating in many local community programs. Situated in Sydney’s inner city fringe of Surry Hills, close to OXFORD ST , this ‘village’ includes much of the gay and lesbian community and is an area rich with art institutions, art students, practicing artists and creative services.
