Held at the Fremantle Town Hall, artists like Pippin Drysdale, Jo Darvall, Robyn Varpins, Tim Macfarlane and Olivia Samec are hoping to beat last year�s total of $75,000 for the Freo Street Doctor, The Sisters Place and The Fremantle Multicultural Centre.
Curator Lyn DiCiero said the Soroptimist International Fremantle-run auction had grown since 2010.
�In the first year, we sold under $20,000 in artworks and the auction was held at a smaller venue at Notre Dame University, but since then the City of Fremantle has donated the use of the Town Hall, and our sales last year exceeded $75,000,� she said.
�I think we have the right balance of emerging, established and collectible works ranging in price from $50 to $7000.
�Members of Soroptimist International, together with volunteers drawn from students at Notre Dame University and Seton College, have fine-tuned the event over the years to make it a memorable experience for all those who attend.�
The auction is at the Fremantle Town Hall on June 6 from 5.30pm.
Viewing is on June 5, 3pm to 5pm, and June 6, noon to 5pm.
