Brave the cold! The Brisbane Hotel has teamed up with Little Creatures to treat everyone to an experience worth leaving the space heater for!
As part of the Artists in Residence series, two artists will go head-to-head at the BNE from 4pm to 8pm every Friday this month to complete an artwork live in efforts to raise money for a charity of their choice.
Each completed artwork will then be available for sale via a silent auction, where proceeds will be donated to the nominated charity of the artist who receives the winning bid.
On the first Friday, we saw Haylee Fieldes (Fieldey) and Nick Zafir battle it out for their chosen charity — the silent auction is still running, but it's going to be one close call with Fieldey's art sitting at a bid of $1000, and Nick's just behind it at $950. That's nearly $2000 raised for a great cause, and it's not over yet! Who will receive the winning donation: Oxfam or Dogs for the Blind? That's up to you to decide...
Everything you could want in a cold winter's evening is right here — amazing food, delicious drinks, a nice warm fire and some great entertainment — and it's all for a good cause.
