Hum-Art-GalaWelcome to the Hum Art Gala 2014!

We are trying our hand at a fun Artful night to fundraise for this beautiful Villa.  Live music, Medicinal Humonade Cocktails, Art, a touch of Bidding and above all else a bit of a good time.  On this page you can browse images of the works that will be offered for auction.


Bohemian Fancy

We will be growing and updating this page daily so please do check back regularly for new updates on artist bios and works on offer!

Many of the artists offering up delicious creative pieces on the evening for auction have some form of connection with the Hum project.  We provide a little tid-bit to this fact via the artists link to the right of this paragraph, so do take a read and get inspired about how this beautiful Grand Heritage Villa is not just a pretty face with a whole lot of potential, its ongoing restoration and active use as a community space has weaved together a beautiful web of individuals from all walks of life  – and now you’re part of it!

If a piece takes your fancy and you would like to bid but don’t have a home for it, we are more than happy to make allowances for your new purchase on the villa’s wall, with a celebration of its owner alongside.  We love celebrating people around here!
