Fundraising Raffle

For the duration of the exhibition JOHN OLSEN: The City's Son, a fundraising raffle gave the community the opportunity to win a 90 x 92cm ed 30/65 art-glass framed, hand-signed, limited edition fine art reproduction of The Little Universe of the Sous Chef 2011 by John Olsen.

On Monday 20 February 2017 the winning ticket (blue ticket number 470) was drawn at 2:00pm today from a total of 916 tickets. The happy winner was Newcastle Art Gallery Society member Carol Harris, pictured above (left) with Gallery Manager Lauretta Morton. Carol was delighted to take her new Olsen work of art home with her that afternoon.

All proceeds from the raffle assist the fundraising campaign for the purchase of a major new John Olsen painting: King Sun & the Hunter 2016, which was unveiled to the community in November 2016. Our sincere thanks to Olsen Irwin Gallery and Aaron Framed It! for their generous support in donating the print and frame.
