If you love collecting art and like to think of yourself as altruistic, then the CASPA Art Sale is the perfect place to splash your cash for a good cause.

The opening night next Friday, October 20, at the Clunes Old School will feature popular personality Vanessa Wagner as the special guest and ensures you get the pick of the artworks on sale.

Theres a huge range of collectable art from both new and recognised artists to choose from, with prices starting from under $50.

Our message to people is purchase a great piece for yourself or as a gift for Christmas and help local kids who cannot live at home anymore due to neglect or abuse, said Kay Knights from CASPA. Last years event was an unprecedented success, and we believe thats because this area has so many people who appreciate the beauty of art. When you know a young person will benefit directly from your purchase, its extra incentive to get out your wallet and take home an original masterpiece.

Opening night begins at 6pm. Tickets are $10 at the door and include drinks and nibblies. There are also 20 tickets for an Intimate Dinner for 20 with Vanessa Wagner after the opening.

The CASPA Art Sale will continue on both Saturday and Sunday from 10am-4pm and entry is free on these days. To book for the dinner or find out more, phone Kay on 0408 834 799.
