Art show returns

The return of our Camperdown & District Hospital Auxiliary’s Spring Catalogue art show has been welcomed with gusto. Close to 150 people attended the weekend affair following a pandemic-induced two-year hiatus.

Auxiliary president Ian Currell says he’s rapt with the outcome of this year’s event with Korumburra art dealer Doug Kane. And with good reason. Of the art on show, 40% was sold. Far more than the usual 12–15% that trades hands at dealer-related shows like this.

The profits from tickets to opening night and the two-day exhibition, a 15% commission from the sold art and 100% of the takings of two art-dealer-donated auction pieces will all add up to yet another sizeable donation for new medical equipment and aides for our Camperdown Hospital. This year already, the auxiliary has generously financed the purchasing of bedside drawers ($1,536), recliner chairs ($8,950), patients’ cabinets ($1,850) and an $8,500 linear transducer. AND it’s about to pay $43,861 for a soon-to-arrive CTG machine/foetal monitor. What a wonderful effort.
