How much does the site get for this auction?

Nothing, nada, zilch. We do not get paid for the auction in any manner whatsoever.

This charity auction is simply my way of trying to do something for others less fortunate, in the same way I give clothes I no longer wear to charity.

Watch out for the @FredHollows retweets of my tweets @_australianart promoting this auction. That will hopefully dispel any doubts you have about the legitimacy of the auction.

What is being sold?

There are several artworks up for sale on the auction. Read the descriptions of the artworks on the auction page to confirm exactly what you are bidding for.

All art for sale will be live for bidding from midday the 9th of this month at the latest. (Note that nothing will be available for bidding until very late Friday, Sept 8th)
