Bayton Award finalist gives back through donation

HER drawing of Rockhampton’s Custom House caught the eyes of people visiting the Rockhampton Art Gallery’s Bayton Award finalists exhibition last year.

 

Patrons at Rockhampton Art Gallery view the Bayton Award finalists' works, including Erin Dunne's drawing (in the background) of Rockhampton's Custom House.

But for 27-year-old Erin Dunne, it was her first solo exhibition that was shown at the gallery mid 2016 that inspired to “give something back” by donating a commission art piece as the first prize of a fundraiser raffle.

“It (exhibition) was really pivotal in my career,” she said.

The Friends of the Rockhampton Art Gallery are running a raffle, to be drawn in June, as part of the group’s annual fundraiser efforts for which the funds go towards the purchase of art works
