CAPO held its 2016 Auction and Masked Soirée at the Canberra Museum and Gallery on Saturday, 22nd October. This glittering occasion was CAPO’s major fundraiser for the year, with the combined Silent Auction and Live Auction selling almost all of the 136 artworks on offer. It is also CAPO’s Awards Night, and this year we gave out 17 awards, ranging from the CAPO Fellowship down to a series of Emerging Artist Awards.
