Upper Brookfield Art Group (UBAG) will host a group show at the Richard Randall Art Studio in Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens on Sunday and Monday, 10 & 11 March 2019, to help raise funds for Vitae Ltd.

The event will showcase hundreds of original artworks by the talented artists of UBAG. A diverse range of artworks that will include watercolours, pastels, acrylics, charcoals and India ink in mats will be on sale.

Aside from viewing the display, you will get to meet the friendly artists, whose ages range from early 60s to early 90s. Many are regular exhibitors at art shows and some have won prizes.

All funds raised will go to Vitae Ltd, a non-profit organisation who continuously sponsors wilderness-based trainings for 11 to 13 year old boys with absentee fathers and have disciplinary problems at school. The training is designed to improve the boys’ life skills and help them realise their full potential.

After attending the training camp, the boys are paired with adult mentors who provide a stable male presence in their lives.
