WELCOME TO THE 2019 MLC ART EXHIBITION We are once again proud to host a MLC Art Exhibition and sale in support of the visual arts at Methodist Ladies’ College. Seventy artists have been chosen based on their medium, style and professional practice, as well as their relationship to MLC. Almost half of these creative individuals are members of the MLC community. We are also excited to announce the inaugural MLC Collegians’ Non-Acquisitive Art Award, kindly donated by the MLC Collegians’ Association in support of a MLC Collegian artist. All artworks are for sale and proceeds from purchases will go towards supporting the visual arts at the College, for example, through artwork purchases, artist residencies or commissions. HOW TO BUY ART On opening night doors open at 6.30pm. At 6.50pm the exhibition will be opened by Fleur Schell and the inaugural MLC Collegians’ Non-Acquisitive Art Award winner will be announced. Sales commence at 7pm. When you have identified the artwork(s) you would like to buy, find a student runner (wearing her MLC uniform) to assist you. They will write the purchase slip, place a red sticker on the chosen artwork label and direct you to the sales desk. Full purchase price must be paid at the time of purchase. We accept EFTPOS, Visa, Mastercard and cash. All items will remain on display (with unsold items still available for purchase) until the end of the exhibition. Works can be collected by the buyer after the exhibition on Saturday 24 August or by making an appointment at a time that suits. Please bring your receipt when collecting works, along with some wrapping material to protect your artwork(s). If your favourite artwork is already sold, please speak to the salesperson about commissions or similar works that may be available for purchase. Thank you for your support.
