Conceived by artist Lara Chapman and curated by Amber Creswell Bell, this art exhibition has the bold aim of raising awareness (and funds) for a little known rare group of blood cancers called 'Myeloproliferative Neoplasms' (MPNs). Lara lives with Polycythaemia Vera - one of the MPNs. Her goal is to raise funds to contribute toward a research project - there is currently no cure and very limited drug therapies available . All works in this exhibition have been donated by over 50 Australian artists, with 100% of sales going directly to the Leukaemia Foundation of Australia.
(image above) 1 of my 3 donated works. Melaleuca Wetlands - Study I, 2017, mixed media on paper, 28 x 38 cm (unframed). Happy to say all 3 sold.
