Hottie Cover Challenge Exhibition
Gala 7 July 2013 – 2-4pm
Ongoing exhibition 5 – 28 July 2013
See Melbourne’s “Hotties” challenge each other for cuddling rights at the Gala Hottie Cover Challenge, supporting the Margaret Pratt Foundation, on 7 July 2013.
Winter is here with the night chill upon us. What better way to ward off the cold than to cosy up with a Hottie! After careful inspection all hotties on display at the fundraising opening are available to be taken home for a private session.
Are you thinking of Prince Charles or Camilla? Sorry to mislead, the hotties on show are individual works of art made by Melbourne’s artisans and creative arts community who have come together to raise funds for the Margaret Pratt Foundation who encourage, develop and maintain Australia’s world class expertise in organ transplant research. However it cannot be denied that cuddling up with a hot water bottle is one of the charms of living in Melbourne.
All entries will be on sale for the duration of the exhibition (5-28 July 2013) with 100% of the sales going to the Margaret Pratt Foundation. Sales, voting fees and proceeds from the 100+ entry applications are hoped to raise in excess of $5,000 for the foundation.
The exhibition will be officially opened by a patron of the Margaret Pratt Foundation on 7 July 2013 at the Opendrawer – Art Gallery 1158 Toorak Road Hartwell Village, Camberwell.
Entry criteria gave the choice of materials and practicality to the artist’s imagination. Expect some visually wonderful but not particularly functional designs.
The artisans will be vying for the People’s Choice Award, the general public are invited to vote for their favourite with a coin donation. Voting is simple and the entry with the highest donation wins.
Unsold or hotties will be donated to the foundation for use in further fundraising.
