September to October – ArtyBra UpLifted

Cancer Wellness Support is pleased to present an incarnation of their major fundraiser ArtyBra for 2020, now renamed ArtyBra UpLifted.

Since its inception in 2010 this signature bi-annual event has continued to evolve and grow in popularity. Previously the event offered an opportunity for the community and local artists to design and product a character bra or tie artwork to be donated for display before a fundraising auction.

This year we are taking an exciting new direction and incorporating artworks of an open variety of mediums. We are currently calling out to artists from Penrith and the Blue Mountains to kindly donate an artwork piece with an “UpLifting” theme that reflects our thriving individual and community spirit.

ArtyBra UpLifted will be showing at The Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre, Penrith from Tuesday 22 September to Sunday 4 October 2020. Official opening on Friday 25 September (time TBC).

The exhibition then moves to the Palais Royale in Katoomba and will be on show from Tuesday 6 October to Tuesday 13 October. Official opening on Saturday 10 October.

And the main event, the ArtyBra UpLifted Auction will be held in the Ballroom at The Carrington Hotel, Katoomba on Saturday 17 October (time TBC).
