mediums is sought from artists from diverse social and cultural
backgrounds. The focus is on local artists from the cities of
Port Phillip and Hobsons Bay but the program is also open to
regional and interstate artists. There is no cost to exhibit and
no commission charged on sales of work. Established in 2004, the
Gallery runs a continuous program of exhibitions at Toyota’s
corporate headquarters in Port Melbourne and has shown the works
of over 700 artists.

The ATVP Demo Sale is a fundraiser for the gallery and an opportunity to sell your
artworks in the lead up to the Christmas Season. The show will take up the entirety
of the Ground Floor Gallery as well as our two new spaces – the Starewell Gallery
and Gallery 4.5 upstairs.

As an Artist Run Initiative (ARI), ATVP relies on donations, grants and a whole lot
of good will to fund our mission to support emerging and contemporary art, artists
and curators. As such, this show is an important fundraiser to ensure that we can
keep delivering an exciting program into 2012 and beyond.

Artists are invited to submit works with a sale price of no more than $300.
The proceeds from any works sold will be split evenly between the gallery and the artist.

The Demo Sale operates like a garage sale – works can be taken by the buyer immediately
after purchase (in time to be wrapped and put under the tree). We will continue to put
out more artworks as others sell.
