It’s back in force. Find yourself a Drinkwater, or Bell, or Gardiner, or Marti, or Grogan. The Lock Up creative space in Hunter Street, Newcastle East, will launch Collect, its annual fundraising art exhibit, Friday at 5:30 p.m., featuring for sale over 65 works of art and sculptures by artists from Hunter and from Newcastle. The exhibition is the nonprofit gallery’s main annual fundraiser, with the creative space receiving a 40% commission on the sale of each work. The exhibition is also a chance for local, established and emerging artists to support the gallery, which has a national reputation for its daring programming. And it’s also an opportunity for local art lovers to buy a piece by a famous artist at a reasonable price (like a piece by Michael Bell featuring his specialty, dogs, for $ 750, or a James Drinkwater for $ 550). The show is first-in, first-served, with an online sale of the live artwork as the doors open. All works have a fixed price set by the artist. Prices range from $ 150 to $ 5,900 (for a Dani Marti play). Artists with works in the exhibition include Ben Adams, Gillian Adamson, Nick Barlow, Dean Beletich, Michael Bell, Brigitte Beyer, Sally Bourke, Michelle Brodie, Megan Burley, Lyndall Campbell, Wanjun Carpenter, Rob Cleworth, Dale Collier, Dino Consalvo, Lottie Consalvo, Jen Denzin, Andy Devine, James Drinkwater, Helen Dunkerley, Sophia Emmett, Ryan Fitzgerald, Leslie Fitzsimmons, Brendan Frost, Aidan Gageler, Ben Gallagher, Peter Gardiner, Paul Graham, Michelle Gearin, Lucas Grogan, Ellie Hannon, John Heaney, Ileigh Hellier, Doug Heslop, Ben Kenning, Jane Lander, Peter Lankas, Jen Lanz, Dani Marti, Patrick Maverty, Edwardo Milan, Liz O’Brien, Olivia Parsonage, Mel Pegg, Liz Pike, Brett Piva, Scott Probst, Una Rey, James Rhodes, Bree Rooney, Alessia Sakoff, Malvika Satelkar, Jo Shand, Bella Snape, Wednesday Sutherland, Annabelle Sutton, Annika Thurbon, John Turier, Shan Turner Carroll, Gavin Vitullo, Bridie Watt, Susan Weaver, Ahn Wells, Sharon Williams, Kara Wood and Vera Zu lumovski. All works will remain on display throughout the exhibition, which runs until June 27.
