'I Am Everything' (2010)
Mixed Media on Paper
60 x 60cm (framed)
As part of our fundraising efforts to get The Breakfast Club Diaries (TBCD) book printed, the TBCD is giving ONE very lucky person the opportunity to win ‘I Am Everything’, a work on paper (framed) by Susan Gourley that was a finalist for the prestigious Lethbridge 10000 Small-Scale Art Award in 2012 (RRP: $595.00). This piece has been part of Suzy’s own private collection as it holds great value for the artist in terms of her practice and process which is inevitably autobiographical by nature. However, she has decided to donate it because of her love for TBCD and the fact that the project has the potential to restore eyesight to over 590 adults and children worldwide. That’s pretty awesome! Tickets are limited and only $10.00 each so be quick!! 
Enter here Drawn on Friday 2nd May at 5pm and the winner announced shortly after. NB: Freight will be additional. If you have any queries you can email info@susangourley.com.au Good luck!
