Remember Greenpeace? It’ll now be in the forefront of your mind with this genius art exhibition raising funds for the environmental cause – The Art For Jungle Project – on Thursday 28th June at The Standard in Surry Hills. The fundraiser showcases an eclectic mix of art and jewellery on display, helping the fight against rainforest destruction and wildlife extinction in Borneo and throughout the world. For a measly $5, which will be donated to Greenpeace, you can view art and accessories from creatives across Australia as you sip on a beer – and get there early and you may just get it for free!
Works on show range in price and include photography, line drawings, canvas paintings and typography design, and if you don’t manage to find anything hanging on the wall that takes your fancy, check out the stalls selling jewelry, prints, purses and clothing or buy a raffle ticket for a chance to win prizes including wine and organic preserves, With a percentage of money from works sold going towards the fundraising for Greenpeace, and the rest to help the exhibiting young emerging artists, you won’t be the only one who benefits from foregoing the comfort of staying at home. Lend a hand and come on down Thursday night!
