"The Stoic One" - Joins 100+ Artworks for Conservation Project
June 1, 2021
"The Stoic One" painted by Kylie Sheahon has been donated to the Living With Koalas (LWK) conservation project, titled 100+ Artworks for a Koala.
The original artwork, along with 100+ other artworks will go for auction to help raise money for koala conservation. A large canvas print will also be produced to travel around Australia to galleries, schools and events to help raise awareness about the vulnerability of koalas to extinction.
Money will be raised by purchasing a book that showcases all the artworks on the tour, including "The Stoic One". Funds raised will go towards replanting essential eucalyptus trees for koalas in the hope to ensure their survival for future generations. 50% of the auction proceeds will also go directly towards koala conservation efforts.
