Guests and suppporters wined and dined late into the evening, at our much anticipated fundraising event Dining With Art, presented as part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival Umbrella Event program.
The night was a huge success, with guests immersing themselves in the art created by Arts Project Australia artists, earthy food by Rob Kabboord of Merricote and wine by Carlei Wines. Political satirist Bryan Dawe kept the guests entertained throughout the evening, while guests took advantage of the VIP preview of our next exhibition At the Table, purchasing fourteen artworks throughout the evening. We want to thank everyone who joined us last night – is was a night to remember for everyone involved.
An event like Dining with Art is a collaborative effort, and we again want to thank our amazing supporters for being so generous and who were so wonderful to work with on this project! They were Merricote, 3sidedsquare, as well as local traders Carlei Wines, Fowlers Flowers, Andrei Davidoff, Melbourne Community Farmers Markets, Glenn Tebble Homewares, Third Drawer Down, Beraldo Coffee, Rydges Bell City, SOFITEL Luxury Hotels, Leonard Joel, Glencross Woodworks, Paper-Go-Round, Web Prophets and Bryan Dawe as MC.
If you missed out on a ticket and would like to visit the gallery, At the Table officially openes this Saturday 16 March, so please join us at the opening from 3-5pm.
“At the Table is a group exhibition that explores the theme of food in its many facets in the work of Arts Project Australia’s artists.” Emiko Davies, curator.
But for now, please enjoy these images of the event and we hope to see you at Arts Project Australia soon.
