Winning Bid: $950.00
It is National Bilby Day on the second Sunday of September – this year the 11th. Our co-founder, Frank Manthey, led the campaign for this – the only gazetted day in Australia that celebrates one of our amazing native species.
We encourage you all to celebrate the bilby on this day! And this year we are incredibly lucky to be able to offer a truly once in a lifetime opportunity to bid on some fabulous bilby art.
Our friend, Ronelle Reid, was thrilled to return to Charleville as an artist in residence with Save the Bilby Fund and she was ecstatic to be awarded a Regional Arts Fund grant through Flying Arts Alliance to do this project, giving her a financial boost to travel out west and work closely with these iconic Aussie animals.
Ronelle loves and is committed to celebrating our national species through her art, and was determined to do something to support the bilby for National Bilby Day. After spending a week in Charleville and building lots of artistic resources through sketching and photographing her little muses at the Bilby Experience, Ronelle returned to her studio and created this stunning drawing that perfectly captures a group of bilbies. We are stoked that we can offer this original to be auctioned for the Fund, leading into this year’s National Bilby Day.
The bilby drawing is a 50cm x 70cm watercolour pencil drawing on mounted paper and framed in a Victorian Ash float frame titled. “What is the collective noun for Bilbies?”
Help support the Biblies by bidding for this unique piece of art.
Or, if you would prefer to make a donation, we will send a limited edition print with a certificate of authenticity of this beautiful drawing to the first 30 bilby lovers who donate $250 or more before National Bilby Day!
