Unmasking the Wild – The Auction is now Ended.

This special  site will remain active until the end of July, when all of the masks have been distributed to their owners and the cheques handed to the two charities. In the meantime, you can look at the pages detailing the creation of the Unmasking the Wild exhibition pieces created by famous Children’s book Illustrators to raise funds for the  Children in Crisis Fund and Animals Asia, or visit them for a last look at the Geelong Reginal library, where they will remain on display for two more weeks.

If this is your first visit to the site, you can access all previous posts from this two month auction site by using in the Updates link in the menu bar above.

There will be update posts from the RED QUEEN  from time to time over the next month and pictures of the new owners with their masks or wearing them (if they want to be incognito.
