Art Auction and Fundraiser Dinner!


Be in the room or make an absentee bid to own exclusive works by Australia's most acclaimed artists.

Tuesday 4th April 6-10PM



President Nicky Ginsberg and the Chippendale Creative Precinct Board of Directors are incredibly excited to host a most special and spectacular Sicilian soiree with a Mediterranean twist.

On Tuesday, April 4, the CCP warmly invites our special friends to a night of pure indulgence as we auction exclusive work from fourteen of Australia’s most collectable contemporary artists!

Generously sponsored by Dr. Stanley Quek, Executive Chairman of Greencliff, join us for a night of opulence as we get carried away over a mighty five-course Sicilian seafood degustation, carefully imagined by Olio Kensington Street’s esteemed head chef Lino Sauro.

As a reward for indulging and snapping up your favourite artwork, sit back, relax and delight in an explosive performance by the Sydney Flamenco Studio! The incredible Chachy Peñalver is set to electrify revellers with a fully charged contemporary flamenco performance accompanied by the Arrabeto Ensemble.

And when you are not bidding madly, or your hands are not tied behind your back, stamp on over to The Sydney Flamenco Studio and check them out. After this naughty affair you will need to loose a pound or two!
