20 Day Reminder: Entries for the Wonder of Eyes: Eyes of Wonder textile exhibition, art exchange and fundraiser for The Fred Hollows Foundation close at midnight (Australian time) on Thursday 20 February 2020.
Celebrate the gift of sight!
Please join me to celebrate and contribute to the gift of sight in four easy steps:
- MAKE a 20x20cm textile work exploring the theme(s) the wonder of eyes and/or eyes of wonder
- DONATE to The Fred Hollows Foundation via the Wonder of Eyes Fundraising Page. (Please use the orange donation button in the middle of the page so your donation shows up in the Wonder of Eyes tally. )
- SUBMIT your online entry form by 20 February 2020
- SHIP your artwork to arrive in Australia by 20 March 2020.
With sponsorship and support from Expertise Events, your artwork will be displayed at the Australasian Quilt Convention from 16-19 April 2020 with a Viewers’ Choice award of A$200.
You can also choose to be part of an exchange where your work goes into a pool and, by random selection, you will receive an artwork by another artist in return.
Fundraising Progress Report
Thank you to the 40+ artists who have entered so far. Together we have raised nearly $1500. The suggested donation amount is $20 but all donations are welcome. (Remember too, any amount over $2 is tax-deductible in Australia and you can make your donation anonymous.)
When you make a donation, there is the opportunity to upload an image of your artwork as your donation profile photo. Here are just some of the supporters.
And here are some of the artworks that have already been delivered to me.
All complying artworks will be featured in an online gallery on the Wonder of Eyes website. In the meantime, follow @wonderofeyes on Instagram for the latest news. Tag your contributions with #wonderofeyesfundraiser and #wonderofeyes to make it easy to find your artwork.
