Charity art in aid of Lifeline

By Rebecca Peppiatt 

A DARLINGTON art gallery is hoping to raise $40,000 for a crisis support service through the sale of 400 one-off pieces of art.

Juniper Galleries, home to the late Robert Juniper – one of Western Australia’s most acclaimed artists – will next week be buzzing with art lovers, keen to get their hands on an original masterpiece.

Over 300 WA artists have donated their time and talent to create a 20cm x20cm canvas, with $100 from each piece sold going to Lifeline.

Larger works will also be on show with part proceeds to Lifeline.

“It’s an organisation that’s very close to my heart,” Trish Juniper said.

“They need all the help they can get and raising money for them has hit a nerve with a lot of people with the pandemic and Christmas coming.

“We were overwhelmed with the response from artists wanting to get involved.”

Artists such as Judy Sylvester, Joanne Duffy, Judy Rogers, Jeanette Dyson and Jo Meredith have created work for the exhibition with bookings essential for their purchase.

The paintings will be on display for all to see between Sunday, November 21 and 28, 10am to 5pm to the general public, and work will be sold on a first come, first served basis.

The first session is booked out and later sessions are booking fast via www.junipergalleries.com.au for more info.
