Join internationally renowned artist Andrew Baines and Lutheran Care to strut your stuff on Henley Beach and raise funds for people doing it tough.
On Sunday 4 February, the latest living art installation by the Adelaide-based surreal artist will take place on Henley Beach.
Participation in the installation is a $5 donation on the day with all funds raised supporting South Australians in need through the work of Lutheran Care, as Andrew’s charity of choice.
Lutheran Care’s Emergency Relief program is a critical service that supports South Australian families and individuals experiencing crisis and disadvantage through food relief, clothing, bedding, vouchers and referrals to other programs such as counselling, financial counselling, homelessness services and parenting programs.
Andrew Baines is a Henley Beach-based surrealist artist known for his bold paintings featuring bolar-hatted figures, cows, sausage dogs and lighthouses.
He has also gained considerable international recognition for his surreal installations, which place politicians, orchestras, live cows or hundreds of suited volunteers in the sea and on beaches for photo shoots. Previous collaborators include former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, former federal politicians Alexander Downer and Amanda Vanstone, and former South Australian Premiers Lynn Arnold and Steven Marshall. He previously partnered with Lutheran Care for the installation, ‘Behind the Guise of Homelessness‘.
Andrew is a United Nations Art Advisor and his paintings hang as part of collections at ANZ Bank, Singapore; The Australian Embassy in Rome, Italy; Government House SA; and the United Nations Association of Australia.
We sincerely thank Andrew for partnering with us on this important project and for his very generous offer to create a painting inspired by the living art installation which will be donated to Lutheran Care to auction in support of our crisis relief programs.
Your donation will help us support vulnerable families and individuals in South Australia and the Northern Territory.
