Fundraising Exhibitions


Towards Regrowth: Art Aid for Fire Relief represents the collective action of more than 50 contemporary artists in response to the unprecedented devastation caused by the ongoing bushfires. This 3-day, artist-led exhibition will include works by both Sutton Gallery artists and invited guests. All sales will be less the standard gallery commission and 100% of proceeds, as well as cash donations collected at the opening reception, will be donated to Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria (VFBV) and Firesticks Alliance Indigenous Corporation.
While this exhibition has no overarching premise other than to support the collective response of artists to a national tragedy, perhaps a curatorial provocation arises in the form of its optimistic approach towards regrowth; how can we collectively prepare for a future in which the threats caused by global heating will only increase in frequency and severity? What are the pathways to affecting long-term sustainable practices within the commercial gallery sector and wider contemporary art community? How can we continue to harness the capacity of artistic practice and activity to support rejuvenation and regrowth of people, community and Country? In the first instance, we hope that this exhibition and act of coming together can help to mediate the despair associated with climate catastrophe by generating hope and seeding further action.
