Last year’s event, CAPO 27, took place on 27th November 2010 at the National Archives of Australia, and was a glamorous and fun evening featuring a silent and live auction accompanied by superb food, music and wine.

The annual CAPO exhibition is Canberra’s most significant annual survey of local, professional, contemporary artists, craft practitioners and designer makers. Everyone is welcome and throughout the night you can bid for art, craft and services at all levels of value! The work is often very collectible and you can pick up some real bargains.

In 2010 the survey exhibition of professional artists from Canberra was on show to the public for a week prior to the CAPO 27 auction This provided an opportunity to profile the artists and their work, increased the audience reach of this remarkable event, and offered patrons extended time to consider their potential purchases.

2010 Grant winners were announced at CAPO 27. You can find out more details of grant winners here.
