Artwork taking part in our silent auction tonight, kindly donated by @lara_chamas_artist

Titled 'Burqa Opener', this display bottle opener, based on islamic veil, subverts the female body and religion into a vessel to open things. Specifically to open a haram substance such as beer.⠀

This easily held tool "opens" up potentially forbidden substances, alluding to issues such as terrorism and gender inequality, practised under the name of something else.⠀

@lara_chamas_artist is currently completing her Masters in Fine art at Monash University. ⠀
Her artistic practice investigates sub topics of postcolonial and migrant narratives, specifically within the context of her own cultural identity as a First generation Australian Lebanese.⠀

Her work is currently showing at West Space till 19 August, Future exhibitions will be at George Paton Gallery (September), Bus projects (November) and St. Heliers Street Gallery (December) "⠀


Why Lara donated her artwork to CAS: "Community and art connection is the future of the arts and social development, I want to help ensure this can keep running."⠀

@Ztahirian was originally from Afghanistan, but was born as a refuge in Pakistan currently living in Melbourne. ⠀

He had many group exhibitions nationally in Pakistan, and was the curator of Ashil Gallery in Quetta, Pakistan. He had his first group exhibition in Dandenong at Connection Arts Space gallery.⠀

One of the artworks being auctioned at our event, titled the The Afghan Girl by @ziaatahi

The artwork is a portrait of an Afghan girl, suffering from poverty like thousands of other children in Afghanistan. The image portrays the heartbreaking sadness of seeing such a child suffering at such a significant age. ⠀

@ziaatahi was born in Afghanistan and had to flee his home due to war. He arrived in Australia as a refugee in 2005 and now calls it home. ⠀

Statement from Zia: "My journey has been the most important part of my life. In fact it's an art within itself. I am born with it, living with the memories and imagining my future along. Painting and photography are the two artistic tool for me to help myself to speak the unspoken words and show what goes in my world." ⠀

Two artworks taking part in our silent auction, kindly donated by @smcconnell25.⠀

The pieces 'After the flood: "No tourists please. Help Welcome"' and 'Tornadoes bear down on South East US', are 2 in a series of 57 monoprints drawn from articles published between January and May 2017, reporting on major weather events and climate change. ⠀

The medium of monoprinting was chosen for its uncertain, fast paced nature resulting in a single image from each print. These articles point to an information iceberg, whereby the stories we receive are only small hint of a much bigger picture.⠀


@smcconnell25 is a Melbourne based artist working in printmaking and drawing to explore the medium of the artist book. As a committed activist and environmentalist, her work addresses issues around humanity’s impact on nature and the social and environmental consequences of our actions.⠀

Sarah completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in Drawing at the Victorian College of Art in 2011 and the Sustainability Leadership Fellowship program at the Centre for Sustainability Leadership in 2013. She has taught at LaTrobe College of Art and Design and has been involved with CLIMARTE for the biennial festival ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE.


You can find out more about her work by visiting her website http://buff.ly/2twFlpU ⠀

Had such a wonderful time at The Silent Art Auction last night. My first time ever participating in an auction. There were a lot of beautiful art donated from kidlit artists to support American Booksellers for Free Expression (ABFE) and Every Child a Reader. I really adored robin art from @sergioruzzier but didn't win. :( Hopefully someday. @childrensbookcouncil @american_booksellers_assoc
