Tuesday, June 29th, 2010 - Australian Orangutan Project

I am writing to tell you about the Art Exhibition being held for the Australian Orangutan Project (AOP) in Brisbane from October 21st until October 24th.

The Australian Orangutan Project is holding this exciting national fundraiser to help raise much-needed funds and awareness to help support the conservation of orangutans both in Sumatra and Borneo. It is currently estimated that orangutans have less than a decade left before extinction unless a massive effort is taken now to protect their habitat.

The AOP is collecting an assortment of artwork from artists who would like to donate a piece of their work to this event. The artworks will be put up for sale at the exhibition with proceeds going to the conservation work of AOP. 

The theme of the art works is; “Through orangutans’ eyes”
which will focus on what an orangutan sees in its habitat based on the native flora, fauna and scenery of the Sumatran and Borneo forests.

There are 2 categories in the art exhibition, two dimensional works and three dimensional works.
 
Entry details into the exhibition are as follows:
Entry Fee Type:  1.   $25 per artist with 50% of sale to AOP.
Entry Fee Type:  2.   Full donation of 100% of artwork  to AOP - No entry Fee.

Entry forms and fees must be received by the AOP committee by August 8th 2010.

The event will be held at Richard Randall Studio, Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mt Coot-tha, from October 21st to October 24th 2010.
