Project Orangutan the exhibition was a fundraising exhibition featuring 81 artists and 90 artworks depicting 73 orangutans from International Animal Rescue’s orangutan Rehabilitation Centre in Ketapang, Indonesian Borneo.
There were two successful showings of these amazing artworks.
The first exhibition was held at the E2 Gallery and Events Centre in Berrima NSW. 11 pieces sold on the opening night. The weather was atrocious for the remainder of the week but many brave souls still came out to view the fantastic artworks created for the fundraising exhibition.
The entire show was then moved to Tap Gallery Darlinghurst, where 100 people attended the opening night and four artworks were sold. Gail Browning from TOP NSW gave a presentation at a Saturday High Tea and another six pieces were sold.
Over the two shows, over 30 artworks were sold as well as many prints and photographs. Over $16,000 was raised for the IAR Rescue Centre in Ketapang. This money will be sent to IAR through TOP.
The remaining artworks are featured on the website www.projectorangutantheexhibition.com and are for sale via email enquiry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Little Gunung at the IAR Rescue Centre seems very impressed with the amount raised!
