Ruck Rover General Store are proud to announce STAY SAFE 2015, the second annual charity art exhibition founded in 2014 by local artist, writer and curator Kate-Anna St Valentine.
STAY SAFE will feature works from 15 emerging and established Australian artists, centered around the theme of animals. All pieces in the exhibition will be for sale, and for the second year running, the money raised will be donated to Western Australian charity SAFE.
Since being founded by Sue Hedley in 2003, SAFE (Saving Animals From Euthanasia) has been committed to stopping the euthanasia of animals for the reason of them having no place to stay. The program began in the Pilbara and has spread throughout Western Australia, where they find foster care and permanent homes for rescued animals.
STAY SAFE 2015 will run from 15 August to 13 September 2015, with an opening night party from 6:30-8:30pm on Friday 14 August with drinks courtesy of Gage Roads Brewing Co and Sipsmith Gin.
The exciting line-up of artists for the 2015 exhibition are:

The inaugural STAY SAFE exhibition ran from 1-31 July 2014 at Ruck Rover General Store in Northbridge, as part of the Perth Winter Arts Season, and was a great success and loads of fun for those that participated. So much so that Kate-Anna and Ruck Rover co-owner Claire Trolio decided that they should make it an annual exhibition. Earlier this year, Kate-Anna lost her battle with cancer. Claire, along with artist Sean Morris, a close friend of Kate's, and with the blessing of the Williams family, have got together to present STAY SAFE 2015. Please come along and help us to do justice to this event.
