This exciting initiative focuses on using original Australian art to raise funds for vital heart research and education, while supporting emerging artistic talent.
Smales will be donating this stunning diamond pendant created by our event co-sponsor Hearts On Fire – ‘The World’s Most Perfectly Cut Diamond’.
Smales is the exclusive retailer of Hearts On Fire diamond jewellery in Western Australia.
The pendant will be modelled on the night and will be won by one lucky gala attendee!
The event promises to be a spectacular night and a great way to support a wonderful charity.
Not to mention an amazing way to spend Valentines Day! And the fun starts now with the launch of the online artists competition!
The Online Competition
Artists are invited to enter the heartactually art competition now with a painting that celebrates the beauty, romance and sensuality of the human form.
The details of each artwork entered will be listed online on ArtInvesta and then posted as a Crowd Funding Project on Pozible. The aim is to attract pledges, donations to the Heart Foundation's vital research and educational programs.
The six highest pledge-raisers will become the finalists in the heartactually competition and the artworks will be featured at the Valentines cocktail gala. The winner will be decided upon by the votes from guests at the Valentine's Day Gala Event.
The campaign focuses on encouraging those wishing to donate to the Heart Foundation to also give an up and coming artist an opportunity to be recognised. Heart and art – a beautiful synergy.
The Gala Awards Event - February 14, 2015. QV1 building, Perth City.
