Parnell Dogs of Art, done and dusted.

Parnell Dogs of Art, done and dusted.

amandareelick.dogauction-7.jpg - Golden Mandala Dog by Artist Rae West

For the third, and most talked about year yet, Parnell hosted their annual ‘Year of…Exhibition’ placing 20 Designer Dogs centre stage.

The Parnell Business Association invited 20 Artists and Celebrities to place their time, talent and passion into creating 'Dogs of Art' to be auctioned off with the key purpose of raising money for Starship - National Air Ambulance and this year the Auction managed to raise record takings of $27,000!

Each one of the Dogs of Art had their own individual personalities and stories to tell and with the amazing support of media plus the wonderful word of mouth that occurs when something exciting and for such a special cause is going on, Parnell was able to celebrate Chinese New Year with the best results yet for Starship.

Thank you to Barfoot & Thompson Parnell for sponsoring this wonderful Exhibition and to Jonathan Grant Galleries for hosting the Live Auction.
