We are excited to reveal a special collaboration between renowned artists Janine Daddo and Wendy Hayden, painted for the inaugural The Art of Wellbeing competition in Western Australia.

The piece, titled ‘EMBRACE’ has been created to celebrate unity between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians.

EMBRACE will be auctioned at the The Art of Wellbeing award night next Wednesday 14 November in Perth CBD with proceeds being directed to projects in Aboriginal communities, operated by Richmond Wellbeing. Two other artworks by Janine Daddo will be exhibited from Gullotti Galleries.

“EMBRACE is a joyous celebration of compassion, understanding and acceptance in the community,” Janine Daddo said.

“With love in our hearts we can find ourselves and learn to nurture those around us, embrace our differences without judgement or discrimination to find compassion, be vulnerable, heal, find our way and build our dreams. Embrace the true you, embrace each other and build a strong confident community.”

The Art of Wellbeing is an initiative in which Aboriginal artists around Western Australia were invited to put forward their interpretation of ‘wellbeing’. These artworks speak from each artist’s unique story through mediums including painting, photography or sculpture. Twenty finalist artworks will be up for grabs in a silent auction and bids can be made now on www.rw.org.au.

We invite you to join us at this special auction to support all involved and help recognise Janine Daddo’s generous contribution to this valuable community project.
