A NOTE FROM DIRECTOR BEVERLY KNIGHT

IT'S TAX TIME IN AUSTRALIA - TIME TO GIVE, TIME TO REFLECT

Covid-19 presented challenges worldwide for collectors and artists, especially generating income to live and create. I can now report that we are on track to be very pleased with our results (we call it "Year 3 of Covid"), which directly impacted our artists and secure jobs for art worker staff. In this last year in particular some of our remote community artists faced lockdowns not faced before including the closure of art centres. But all is good! Alcaston Gallery and art centre staff do go the extra mile to act for artists especially presenting online and real exhibitions to our vast worldwide collector base.

Big thank you to all from us at Alcaston Gallery

END OF FINANCIAL YEAR DONATIONS

Alcaston Gallery, Director Beverly Knight, Gallery Manager Adriana Del Medico and staff encourage our clients to support their charities with tax-deductible cash gifts as the end of this financial year looms.

Crucial support will enable those people socially isolated or simply not coping during the last few years of Covid; supporting our institutions and advocacy bodies makes a difference!
