The Day We All Went Home
Arts Project Australia fundraising auction in partnership with Leonard Joel 
Auction Catalogue Now Live 
Auction Sunday 28 June 3pm  



The Day We All Went Home catalogue is now live, offering 96 lots of 100 works by 54 artists from Arts Project Australia’s studio and three collaborating Melbourne-based artists, inclusive of painting, drawing, photography, digital art, ceramics, textiles and soft sculpture.

Open to local and international collectors of all experience levels, the catalogue, with reserves ranging between $100 and $8000, can be viewed online and includes instructions on leaving absentee bids or bidding online via Invaluable.

Hosted by auction house Leonard Joel, the fundraiser reflects on Saturday 16 March: the day the Arts Project Australia studio and gallery closed and 150 artists were asked to stay home due to COVID-19. It’s time for the works of art left behind to be seen and welcomed into homes, companies and institutions around Australia and the world.

Leonard Joel is sponsoring the fundraising auction and waiving the buyer’s premium, with 100% of proceeds supporting participating artists and Arts Project Australia ongoing viability as a centre of excellence within the arts and disability sectors.

Mapping Our Own Future
A weekly series of group and solo exhibitions curated form our stockroom.
Pure Abstraction
Julian Martin Solo


Characterised by their rich surfaces, Julian Martin’s pastel works make a unique visual statement. Methodical in his approach, Martin carefully works from photographs and arranged still life, deconstructing these references to create highly considered compositions. With his pastels evoking a strong bodily resonance, Martin’s work is a continuous reinterpretation of, and response to, form.

Martin has worked in the Arts Project studio since 1988 and presented his first solo show in 2001. He has exhibited in numerous national and international group shows, and has work in the National Gallery of Victoria, as gifted by Stuart Purves, with work also held in other public and private collections worldwide.

All artworks from Mapping Our Own Future are available for sale. 60% of sales go to directly to artists and 40% of sales go to APA to support our studio and artists. All artworks can either be mailed or stored safely. Limited collection times available.
