ACG Senior College is thrilled to be hosting an artwork

ACG Senior College is thrilled to be hosting an art work as part of the upcoming Frame Works art trail and auction, starting Saturday.

More than 90 artists from around New Zealand are contributing to the art walk around Auckland CBD to raise money for the Asylum Seekers Support Trust.

The inaugural event sees artists given a wooden picture frame to transform into a unique and desirable work of art.

Our ‘frame’ is a stunning sculptural work by Clevedon-based artists Cheryl and James Wright called ‘A Place to Call Home’. The meaning of the steel and ceramic piece reflects the work of Asylum Seekers Support Trust – that everyone has the right to freedom and a country and a place to call home.

It’s currently on display in our large window on Rutland Street.

The project has been organised by Art Manager Alix Bachmann, whose two sons Matthias and Stefan both attended ACG Senior College.

Art lovers, families and the community are encouraged to find and choose their favourite pieces, with an app and a map to help locate the artworks, learn about the artist, bid online or donate directly to the charity.

The event will culminate with an art auction on 2 May. The frames will be sold in a gala event, by live and online auctions, with art auctioneer Charles Ninow of Bowerbank Ninow, at the Quay Project in Britomart. All proceeds go to the Asylum Seekers Support Trust.

What: Frame Works – walkable art trail and auction
When: Art trail 22-30 April, art auction 2 May
Where: Walkable trail from Britomart to AUT through the Laneways, High Street and Lorne Street
Who: 90 artists including Jeff Thomson, Evan Woodruffe, Anna Leyland and Peata Larkin. All proceeds go to the Asylum Seekers Support Trust
