The Art Package (Raffle #1) tickets $20
Have you been looking at your walls more often than you would like in these difficult times and realise you need a piece of fantastic art? In fact, this painting will fit into the home of anyone.
The Art Package is a wonderful painting of the Ngargee Tree donated by local artist Pam O’Neil.
The painting was part of an Exhibition; “White gloss – Port Phillip before and after white people”. It depicts the giant red gum near the Junction Oval that is a survivor of white settlement and is sacred to the Traditional Owners of the land, the Boon Wurrung people. For hundreds of years it has served as a meeting place for the Boon Wurrung people.
The painting is valued at about $1,500 and the total number of tickets sold will be 250.

All have been selected to showcase a variety of Australian styles and regions, and include wines from Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia, and New South Wales.
The value this mixed dozen is valued at over $600 and the total number of tickets sold will be 200.
