 Maitland City Council, together with The Mai-Wel Group invite you to attend the 'In Bloom Exhibition Celebration & Auction'. 

As part of Maitland Regional Art Gallery’s 2015/16 Summer Program, the art exhibition, ‘In Bloom’, showcases paintings created as a collaborative effort by artists with a disability who participate in Exploring Visual Arts at Mai-Wel.

A collective vision for a spring seasonal theme inspired the artists’ vibrant choice of colours as well as the botanical subjects portrayed across their five striking artworks. Maitland Regional Art Gallery (MRAG) is generously hosting this auction event to assist with fundraising required for the program to operate. 

“Maitland Regional Art Gallery (MRAG) is delighted to be partnering with Mai-Wel on a number of different projects – In Bloom celebrates not just the artists’ collaboration, but wider spirit of cooperation between two dynamic community organisations in Mai-Wel and MRAG”, said Ms Uren.

“We hope the auction will raise strong awareness of the importance of Mai-Wel’s Creative Arts Program, and financial assistance towards its long term viability.”

All funds raised from the auction will be allocated to Mai-Wel’s Creative Arts Program to purchase resources that will provide all-inclusive art and performance opportunities for people with a disability or disadvantage in our local community. 

Come and celebrate Mai-Wel artists’ exhibition, ‘In Bloom’, and enjoy the excitement of the live auction of the exhibition’s five beautiful, original artworks.
