In Australia, every 3.5 hours someone takes their own life. For every person that does, another 20 people attempt to do so. 

Interior Stylist Aimee Tarulli (Archer Interiors) and Esther Navarro-Orejon (The Project Agency) together with 27 Australian artists are aiming to open up the conversation surrounding mental health and the stigma associated with the issue by auctioning 27 pieces of original artwork in an online auction starting this Thursday 21st June.

The aim is to raise $50,000 for Livin – a mental health initiative educating young people on the importance of mental health, arming them with the tools to tackle mental health challenges.

Through Aimee’s personal loss of close friends and the duo’s close relationship with the art world, NoPeace in Quiet’  a charity art auction was developed. 100% of the proceeds from the auction will go to activating the LivinWell program in schools around the country.

The national online auction goes live on Thursday 21 June at 7.30pm and concludes on Sunday 1stJuly. 

The artwork will be available to view over three days at Format Framing51-57 Cubitt Street, Cremorne, Victoria

We love art and Sydney's latest art gallery offering has us super excited!

A collective of 13 Sydney artists have recently opened a new gallery space, ‘Sydney Road Gallery’ on 7 June in Seaforth which disrupts the traditional gallery model of showcasing and selling artworks.

The collective are accomplished mid-level exhibiting visual artists from disciplines including painting, printmaking, textiles and sculptural basketry, who have come together to jointly open and manage a combined gallery space.

Sydney Road Gallery objective is to create a business around relationships: artists with artists, artists with customers and artists with stylists and interior designers.

Fiona Chandler who came up with the idea for the gallery said, “Artists are collaborators, it takes many people to see original artworks on walls. We want to acknowledge the coming together of patrons as well as stylists, interior designers and architects who create a unique and aesthetically beautiful space place to live and work.”

“What we wanted to create is a conversation, developing relationships with the people that buy our works.”

“Every artist in the collective see buyers of art as patrons of the arts rather than simply a transaction. When you spend hours or even months creating a piece, each painting or sculpture has a story woven into it.”

“We want to tell those stories to our ‘patrons’ and the people who change spaces with our art such as stylists and interior designers. The feeling that comes from making something and then seeing that made item in a living or work space, and knowing that it was specifically chosen, can be life changing for an artist.”

The gallery will feature a diversity of artwork that will inspire and appeal to interior designers and art lovers alike, including paintings, textiles, sculptural and wall hanging pieces to suit different tastes, themes and settings. The works will change every two weeks.
