The Rotary Club of Scone is hosting a pre-loved art auction at Scone Arts and Crafts

Fallen out of love with that painting on your wall?

Well, as the saying goes, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

The Rotary Club of Scone is hosting a pre-loved art auction at Scone Arts and Crafts this month and it may be the perfect opportunity to sell your old artwork or pick up a bargain, all for a great cause.

The Rotary Club of Scone's Lindy Hunt is inviting the community to donate their pre-loved art this month.

The Rotary Club of Scone's Lindy Hunt is inviting the community to donate their pre-loved art this month.

“We have always had a relationship with Arts and Crafts,” says The Rotary Club of Scone’s Lindy Hunt.

“Each year we try and do one special event.

 “So, we decided we would do something a bit different this year.

“The reason we chose the pre-loved art show was because we have this great venue to hang all the artworks in but also because some people’s art that they don’t love anymore can become someone’s treasure.”

We thought we would put on something to allow the community to not only look at art but purchase it if they wanted, Ms Hunt said.

All proceeds will be allocated towards local drought relief.

 “Rotary Club of Scone has been around since 1946 and we are looking to increase our membership,” Ms Hunt said.

“Particularly from young people and some of our youth exchange kids will be helping us on the night.

“So we hope it’s something the town likes.”

The pre-love art auction will be held on Friday August 24 at Scone Arts and Crafts, Kingdon Street, Scone.

Viewing will commence at 6pm with an auction at 6.30pm.

Entry is a gold coin donation and there will be finger food and a bar available.

If you would like to donate any art that you no longer need, but someone else might enjoy while supporting local farmers, please leave it at Hunt A Book, Scone by Wednesday August 22.​
