Alcorso stages annual fundraiser - Art Collector

31 August 2010 | The Alcorso Foundation is staging its annual fundraiser, a culinary and cultural weekend that will also involve a charity art auction.

The theme of this year’s auction is collaboration, seeing partnerships involving painter Paul Boam and textile artist Jenny Turner, and painter Michaye Boulter and furniture designer Linda Fredheim.

The 2010 Alcorso Foundation dinner and art auction will again be held at MONA near Hobart – home of the soon to be completed Museum of Old and New Art.

The fundraiser will be used to continue the foundation’s work in establishing cross cultural exchanges in music, fine arts and crafts, architecture, civic planning and environmental sciences.
