GET abreast of the times and bid for a gorgeous hand made bra in the Bid for a Bra exhibition at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre.

All proceeds go to Pink Ribbon.

The unique art bras had their first showing at Vivid Gallery in October in the exhibition Uplifting: Art Bras for a Cause.

The second showing is the current exhibition in the Mandurah Arts Performing Centre foyer as part of the Stretch Festival.

Powertex Australia artist, importer, Wearable Art sponsor and Bid for a Bra curator Ashley Hay has created a silent auction so people can go online to buy an art bra.

“It’s like making a donation to Pink Ribbon but they get the art work,’’ she said.

Many of the artists who created and donated an art bra in support of breast cancer awareness are also designers, finalists and winners in the recent Wearable Art Mandurah competition.

“Bid for a designer bra – it will be the talking point in your home for years to come,’’ Hay said.

Bid for a Bra began as an ideas in 2016 that evolved into an art competition and exhibition last year.

When registrations opened for the competition the support was overwhelming.

The event was a huge success with more than 60 national and international entries

The bras are on display until June 24 and the auction closes on June 18.
