Fenton & Fenton are proud to present the fourth Peace of Art exhibition and online auction, opening 5th of November 2021.
Peace of Art 2021 brings together the works of 70 collectible artists from Australia & New Zealand. Each artist has generously donated their work, which will be sold via online auction. All proceeds will go to ‘Create Impact’ (previously School’s A Gift) – an Australian not-for-profit organisation that is helping families living in poverty in Ethiopia.
Fenton & Fenton have been proud to host and sponsor this event since 2014. With the support of all the artists involved, we have raised over $300,000 for Create Impact’s projects in rural Ethiopia. This has been used to construct schools and toilets, provide communities with access to clean water sources and the construction of a brand-new Health Clinic.
This year, the funds raised from Peace of Art will enable Create Impact to provide humanitarian aid to people affected by a deepening conflict in Ethiopia. Last year, a civil war erupted in northern Ethiopia, which has led to millions of people fleeing their homes and becoming displaced. People are facing famine-like conditions and are in urgent need of assistance. Create Impact's team is on the ground, providing cash grants to women so they can afford food, water and shelter.
We look forward to using this event as a platform to both showcase artists and make a life-changing difference in the world. Thank you to all the talented artists involved and everyone for bidding generously over the 10 days!
Friday 5th November - Online bidding opens at 5pm (galabid.com/peace)
Sunday 14th November - Online bidding closes at 9pm
