It is time again for the Annual Sawtooth ARI Fundraiser event!

After such overwhelming support in the past few years, we are again hosting a mid-winter Auction and Gala that promises to be bigger and better than ever. Last year we raised just under $9,000 that covered the costs of purchasing dozens of chairs for our varied audiences as well as a platform safety ladder for artists to create large scale installation work. We also polished the floors to keep the place looking spiffy, and continue to upgrade our aging new media equipment to combat ever increasing compatibility issues, not to mention purchasing the usual installation tools, paint and associated infrastructure costs that keep us, and all our exhibiting artists, connected and exposed to the world.

As always, we aim to make the Annual Sawtooth ARI Fundraiser a night that is to be spontaneous and enjoyed. It is as much a celebration of what we have achieved as what we hope to – none of which is possible without the artists and members who exhibit with us and have donated their work for this event. We look forward to seeing you there! 

- Patrick Sutczak, Chair of the Board, Sawtooth ARI


Payments can be made via EFTPOS, CASH, DIRECT DEPOSIT or CHEQUE on the night. Works purchased will be packaged and available for collection from 8 August during gallery opening hours. Any queries can be forwarded to sawtoothari@gmail.com

A very special thank you to all the artists, performers, businesses and organisations who have generously donated for this event.
