A great art event coming up this weekend. I am unsure if there are tickets left, but a great way to get some of Australia’s most collectable artists on your wall, while supporting a cause. Here is the spiel from the website:
100 Artists. 100 Tickets. 100 Dollars.
Every ticketholder wins an artwork.
All proceeds to the ASRC.

'You’re Welcome' is a charity art raffle where every ticket wins an original work. All proceeds go to the Asylum Seekers Resource Centre. Join us for one afternoon only at Mars Gallery (418 Bay St, port Melbourne) from 3-6pm on Sunday July 24 to add a special piece to your wall and contribute to a great cause.

The list of artists participating in this group show is a staggering collection of talent. Some of Australia’s most impressive and exciting established and emerging artists have generously contributed their talents to the project, donating original works to help raise money for the ASRC. Sam Leach, Jackson Slattery, Jeremy Kibel, Adam Cullen, Jo Bertini, Rhys Lee, Juan Ford, Amber Wallis, Steve Cox, Fergus Binns, Heather B. Swann, Tony Garifalakis, Jasper Knight, Lionel Bawden, Dane Lovett and Emily Ferretti are just a few artists from an amazing list contributing to the project.
