CAPO has been richly supported by the Canberra region’s arts community over the last thirty years. In 2017 over 110 artists contributed works to the auction. This annual auction is in many ways a survey show of the range and skills of professional artists practising in the area. The works span a range of mediums and celebrate the diverse and vibrant cultural heart of the capital.
CAPO uses a set of guidelines to canvass and then accept donations for the auction.
We seek work:
- from professional, working arts practitioners who are Canberra-based or affiliated;
- spanning a range of art mediums;
- that meets museum/exhibition quality standards; and
- that is of interest to our CAPO patrons and auction audience.
