Rapidly becoming an annual favourite event for art lovers in the inner-west, UBUNTU Art is a sale of around 100 contemporary artworks, generously donated by prominent Australian artists and photographers. This year’s event is on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 February at Sydney College of the Arts in Callan Park, Rozelle.

Tickets to the spectacular opening night on Friday, 19 February are only $25 and include free music, fine food and wine – and the chance to be first to buy. Artwork prices start for as little as $50, and include paintings, jewellery, photography and sculpture – by artists including Joan Ross, Angus McDonald and Juli Balla. Many of the artists from the local one+2 Artist Studios in Balmain and Rozelle will also be showing. Look out for work by Laura Mathews, Wendy Arnold and Ian Thomas.

As a result of generous sponsors including local caterer, Hatrick Catering, 100% of funds raised through the exhibition and event will go directly to support the work of the Hamlin Fistula Hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The hospital, established by inspirational Australian doctor, Catherine Hamlin, works to change the lives of some of the world’s most destitute women in one of the world’s poorest countries.

Run completely on donations, the hospital treats nearly 3000 women every year suffering obstetric fistula. These young women have suffered obstructed childbirth without medical assistance and having lost their babies, are left with severe internal injuries.

“Our annual art fundraiser event will raise essential funds by showcasing the work and the generosity of our thriving local art community and also some of the country’s leading artists”, said Cathy McQuade, whose team of volunteers is organising the event.

Tickets for the opening night, including complimentary fine food and wine, are available on 0419 989 011. The art show continues – with free entry – at Sydney College of the Arts on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 February from 10.00am until 4.00pm.
