Live Auction for Bushfire Relief

Instagram Auction Raises Over $7,000

We are heartbroken by the devastating bushfires that have taken over Australia, an in an effort to support those who need it the most PIERMARQ* held a live Instagram auction to raise much needed funds. Artists, Jordy Kerwick, Rachael McCully and Hedley Roberts very kindly donated a painting each, which was auctioned off over Instagram in early January. Alongside this PIERMARQ* donated all gallery profits from the exclusive online exhibition ‘Above and Below’ featuring the work of Terry Ekasala, Maximilian Daniels and Jacob Spokes. 

It was with great pleasure that PIERMARQ* sold all works in the auction as well as some beautiful works from the online show. With the help of our community PIERMARQ* raised $7,600 dollars. The funds were equally split and donated to: 

$2,540 - NSW Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service Inc (WIRES) 

$2,530 - Country Fire Authority, Victoria - CFA & Brigades Donations Fund

$2,530 - NSW Rural Fire Service

 

We would like to thank our artists Jordy Kerwick, Rachael McCully and Hedley Roberts for their generous donations and to everyone who bid on the works. We would also like to thank those who purchased works from our online exhibition 'Above and Below'. Many thanks to all of the organisations who have worked tirelessly to help support those in need during this time.
