In only it’s second year the My Happiness Exhibition on November 11th at Carclew raised $10,040 for Headroom and the CYWHS via a hugely successful live art auction.

It was a wonderful day with great food, wine and entertainment, but the stars of the show were the 65 contributing visual artists.

As well as raising $10,040 for mental health the aim of the Exhibition was to showcase the magnificent artwork across a range of mediums and raise awareness of issues surrounding “mental space”.

Thanks to our major sponsor Proteus Enterprises – prize money was awarded to the top 4 selling artists on the day.

These were:

1st:   Tom Buchanan - “Residental Recoil” - $1000
2nd:  Kellie-Jo Baker - “Bubble Storm” - $500
3rd:  Sonya Veronica - “Shall We, We Shall Indeed” - $250
4th:  Robin Eley - “Broken Promises” - $100

Congratulations to these successful artists!

The works, can still be seen online from this years exhibition.

CEO of Proteus Enterprises, Des Penny, said Proteus were thrilled to be supporting such a successful and positive event:

“Artists are renowned for their ongoing struggle to find financial success, yet this exhibition demonstrates the incredible generosity and talent that can be found within a so called ‘struggling industry’. The Proteus Leadership Centres are honored to reward their outstanding efforts with well-deserved cash prizes. We have now gone on to launched a Creative Leaders Scholarship for visual artists’ design to eliminate the struggle and equip artists with the skills and knowledge to build viable and sustainable businesses.”

Special thanks must also go to the event organising company and talent agency – Onya Soapbox and other major sponsors for their generous work and contributions such as Brave New Media, World Wide Printing and Decor Lighting.

We will be holding the event again in 2008 – with contributions opening up again in February.
