Upcoming Art Exhibit, Sale & Auction at GIBS

Posted on September 07, 2011

Wilson Mizner, American playwright and entrepreneur said, “Art is science made clear”. In October, GIBS plays host to Project Art, a unique event featuring an eclectic mix of artwork for sale and auction all in support of a good cause. With something for everyone, the collection is designed to appeal to aficionados and enthusiasts alike.

In addition to a four day long art sale, on the evening of Thursday 6 October, several pieces donated by some of South Africa’s better known artists will go under the hammer. All pieces are available for previewing and proceeds will go to the Zoe Carss Education Trust, specifically towards the development of a crèche for the Masibambane community in Tembisa where existing facilities are inadequate. Their new crèche will be supplied by the Bright Kid Foundation who specialise in custom made structures called Edutainers.

Alongside the main exhibition, viewers also have the option of taking up the challenge of participating in the silent auction of 40 donated paintings.
