Ok, so I don’t mean the actual building but a unique image of it. This piece titled Eureka Tower Reflected was successful in gaining entry into the New North (now known as Photonet Gallery) exhibition in 2010. It was priced at $550 and would suit an office building or contemporary style house. I believe in giving back to the community through my business and over the years have supported many charities and local organisations. This year I am auctioning this framed and ready to hang image off to the highest bidder to help Merrikk a talented young dancer compete as part of the International Dance Organisation. I first saw Merrikk dancing when I didn’t even know him- but from all the dancers I picked him out as someone exceptional. I have the eye! I’m telling you!
and bad photo of the photo but I wanted you to see the framing and mats.
Merrikk is 10 years old and has been dancing and singing since he was 4 years old and dance means the world to him. His dream is to sing and dance professionally when he is older. Merrikk shows amazing dedication to his love of dance. He trains 6 days a week and loves every second of it. Merrikk as it turns out attends the same school as my kids do, so of course I have gotten to know him and not only is he a talented dancer, he is a lovely and genuine person. Merrikk has been fortunate enough to be selected to be part of the Australian National team.
While being selected as part of the Australian National team is a once in a lifetime opportunity, the costs associated with this need to be self-funded by the individual’s family who financially are unable to afford the costs involved. So I am extremely happy and proud to be art of a team dedicated to making Merrikks dance dreams come true.
The arts of any kind are a tough gig (In other lifetime I used to perform in theatre/film..so I know what is involved to be dedicated to a life in the arts).
I believe if kids (or anyone for that matter) is passionate about something they should have opportunities to pursue that passion.
So- I would love to find a buyer for this image to support Merrikk. So if you know anyone that likes architecture, the Eureka building or needs a piece of art for their home or office building please send them my way. I am hoping it will go to a local buyer and I can deliver it, but if you are interstate or overseas talk to me and we will see what we can do regarding postage. Bidding starts NOW!! Would love for bidding to start at $500 please lets get behind this young talent! Please email me email@example.com
It is not the typical Eureka Tower image I know….but there are heaps of them out there and they aren’t supporting a good cause! Also if you had of witnessed me actually taking the photo squatting and leaning like a lunatic to line the reflection up you will know that was at least worth $1k in public humiliation
Seriously though, if you don’t like this photo but want to help Merrikk or know of a business that loves to support young artists please pop over to Merrikk’s Facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org- we really want to make this happen for him so any help is appreciated!! It could be an item we could raffle/auction or a sponsorship/donation.
Thanks so much,
