When Gallery Director Wayne Devenny put out a call to local artists to support a local charity, they responded – overwhelmingly.
Motivated by his own brush with cancer, Wayne hosted 'Feathers and Dreams' an art exhibition to raise both funds and awareness of Dreams2Live4.
The exhibition - which had to run online as a result of Covid restrictions - included the brilliant art offerings of Amy Raymond, Donna Maree, Lucy Car, Katie Thomas, Jake Graham and Christopher John to name but a few.
Each work of art included a feather. The feather symbolises trust, honour, strength, wisdom, power and freedom and is the eye-catching logo of Dreams2Live4.
“After learning about Dreams2Live4, my wife and I thought it would be a great idea to hold an exhibition to raise awareness and funds for this amazing charity. Dreams2Live4 provides much needed respite for patients with metastatic cancer, and their families. Being diagnosed with lung cancer in 2019, I know firsthand what providing these ‘dreams’ truly means,” said diversARTy Director, Wayne.
Nearly $20,000 was raised - an incredible result!
Planning for the 2022 event is already underway.
