Azzy Jay, on behalf of Castlemaine Fringe Festival Committee 2019.
The 2019 Castlemaine Fringe Festival committee would like to thank the wonderful artists and supporters of the arts that make up this vibrant, wonderful community. The fundraising Art Auction held at The Taproom on February 2 showcased some of the incredible talent of our local artists
and our communities appetite for fun and connection as well as some serious bidding, raising well over $11,500 in art sales, 50 per cent of which will go towards funding this year’s Fringe Festival, with the remaining 50 per cent going to the artists themselves. Such a great day, huge thanks to the artists who
contributed work, Suzanne Donnisthorpe and Jacinta Walsh for their wonderful commentary and knowledge of local artists, the Bosky Nova band for their tunes, Bill Maltby, our esteemed auctioneer and the Taproom for being such great hosts, The Bridge, The Mill, The Castlemaine Mail and Midland Express, Castlemaine Now, Print Together, The Castlemaine State Festival, Get Outta Town and the Wesley Hill Market Traders for their prizes and promotion and this wonderful Castlemaine community for turning up and putting their money where the art is!
