The Campbelltown Domestic Violence Committee invited local artists to support our Wash Away Violence Project, which focused on the impact of domestic and family violence on children.  Women and children  affected by DFV and residing in local refuges painted baby singlets and T shirts to tell their story, raise awareness and Say No to DFV.

 

 

Internationally acclaimed The Gorge artists, David Fairbairn, Sue Archer and David Hawkes contributed to the  Wash Away Violence Project, and their t-shirt artworks are being auctioned to raise funds to assist  the CDVC to  support women and children affected by domestic and family violence.  With one women a week murdered and one child a fortnight killed due to family violence we all need to Speak Out Speak Up and support the elimination of violence against women and children.  

 

 

 

The Auction will conclude at 5.45pm  on the 17/11/22 and winners announced  that evening at the Purple Bench Launch.  Payment will be by electronic fund transfers only.   The items are sold as is and without appraisal.  Collection of items can be at 7.30 pm at the Art Centre or by arrangement.

She has won numerous awards, from the Wynne Prize for Landscape in 1994, to the Dobell Prize for Drawing in 2010, and the most recent Eutick Memorial Still Life Award, held late last year in Wollongong.  Exhibition at Campbelltown Art Gallery – the Song of the Cicada and her  work is displayed at the NSW Art Gallery.  Ms Archer is also a finalist in the 2022 Fishers Ghost Art Competition.
