SECURING THAT SPECIAL ARTWORK
RAW is a not-for-profit event: all the proceeds go towards running our event. One of the ways we raise sufficient funds is by selling art through our Preview Exhibition.
The 300×300 artworks in our Preview Exhibition are donated by our registered artists and all artworks sell for $200. We use this money towards a number of things, such as buying signage, updating our web site, develop our brochure, promoting our event etc.
Sales of the showcase artworks in the Preview Exhibition go to the artists themselves, with a small commission fee for the Raglan Arts Weekend, again used for the event itself.
If you would like to buy art ahead of RAW itself, please head to the Raglan Old School Arts Centre. Our Preview Exhibition will be selling artworks from 1 October to 25 October, daily, 10am until 2pm.
Of course, RAW itself will provide you with the best opportunity to see and choose from a large selection of work. Many of our artists only exhibit over RAW. Just don’t forget to head to the studios with cash; not everyone will have EFTPOS. Refer to our maps for ATM locations.
One day, we would love to be able to sell our Preview Exhibition artworks through this web site. That would enable us to share Raglan’s artist talent to a much wider pool of people. This would require significant resources to manage so it is not quite achievable for us, but is a possibility for the future.
