Some of Australia’s leading contemporary artists have come together to donate their best artwork for auction to raise funds for Table, a Kings Cross-based not-for-profit that aims to raised much- needed funds for social outreach programs in NSW and Victoria.
Artists have contributed original designs to create 14 bespoke linen tablecloths.
The series is available for sale now via an online silent auction until 10pm on Thursday, 27 October at galabid.com/auction/tabletalk.
In addition to funds raised, a tablecloth will be donated to a women’s shelter in need, for every one sold. Shelters include The Women and Girls Emergency Centre, Elsie’s Refuge for Women and Children, Kilara Women’s Refuge, Dolores Single Women’s Refuge, Detour House, B Miles, Twenty 10, St Canice’s Kitchen, The Wayside Chapel, The Safe Futures and St Mary’s House of Welcome.
Table is a registered-not for-profit organisation that delivers a range of projects, including the Organic Soup Kitchen, Young Parent’s Cooking School, and GROW Horticultural Therapy Program.
“The humble dinner table brings us all together to share a meal and conversation, and learn more about each other, so we think the tablecloth series is a fitting way to bring people together to make a difference.” – Table founder Rob Caslick
