Gallery 307 Art School in Northbridge are having an art auction to support Neuroblastoma Australia and you are invited!
Come along to the exhibition which will run from Saturday, 2 February until Saturday, 16 February and see some of the stunning works by local artists.
All of the artworks on display have been inspired by our logo which features Sienna Hoffman’s favourite flower; the Frangipani. Sienna tragically died from the children’s cancer neuroblastoma when she was only two and half years old.
Her friend Jasmine drew the flower which became our logo. You can read more about Sienna, her family and the work Neuroblastoma Australia below.

Neuroblastoma greeting cards
Over the school holidays Gallery 307 Art School in Northbridge held a ‘Frangipani Day’ themed children’s school holiday workshop in support of Neuroblastoma Australia.
Six of the amazing artworks will be made into greeting cards to raise funds for, and awareness of, the children’s cancer neuroblastoma.
