If you have ever wanted to own a piece of art by someone well-known but haven't been able to afford it, a mystery art sale may just be the chance you have been waiting for. Natalie and Ian Campbell, on behalf of the Gateway Baptist Church and PAC Haiti, are holding a Mystery Art Sale Fundraiser to help children in Haiti. However, the catch is that the art on sale will not be attributed to an artist until after the buyer has purchased it. Each piece costs $100 and the work could have been created by a Glover Prize winner, a sportsperson or a kindergarten child. The fundraiser will be held from 10am-2pm at 22 Wellington Street, Launceston.
