Many of Australia's leading painters and jewellers have teamed up to present a breathtaking exhibition of donated pieces to raise money for the work of Australian Red Cross. The paintings cover a range of subjects and styles. Jewellery artists are designing brooches and neckpieces for the Exhibition.

"This is a rare opportunity to see and purchase top quality art and jewellery while contributing to a great cause, made possible through the extraordinary generosity of so many artists," says Di Jay, Executive Director for Red Cross in NSW.

Contributing painters include Neil Evans, David Fairbairn, Christopher Hodges, Euan Macleod, Angus Nivison, Jan Weir, Phil Aston Williams, Salwa Woodroffe as well as Aboriginal artists Mary Punchi Clement, Janie Ward and Noῃgirrya while the jewellery designers include Helena Bogucki, Zoe Brand, Danielle Butters, Melanie Ihnen, Bridget Kennedy, Saori Kita, Jessica McMullen, Melissa Miller, Michele Morcos, Emma Wood, Shu-Lin Wu and Melinda Young.

Terence Maloon, former Senior Curator at Art Gallery of NSW, will officially open the Exhibition.
