Art for The Sea Goes Under the Hammer.

An eclectic array of 20 prominent New Zealand artists have created unique pieces of art out of the old Lyall Bay Surf Lifesaving Club's (LBSLSC) clubhouse.

Paddleboards and sections of original native timber were extracted before the building's demolition earlier this year and formed canvasses for many of the works that are now up for auction.

All art goes under Ian Patterson's expert hammer at the New Zealand Portrait Gallery on Thursday 30 March to raise funds for the fit-out of the Club's new building.

Contributing artists include Clare Matthews, Dside, Sean Duffell, Flox, Donna Cross, Michael Mccormack, Juliet Best, Alfred Memelink, Brian Nelson, Bruce Luxford, Toothfish, Mellissa Young, Liz Ritchie, Christie Wright, Mica Still, Helen Casey, Paul Eagle, Sue Dasler, Jack Candlish and Milarky.

"We have some amazing pieces," says Club Chairman Arie Moore. "This is a unique chance for people or businesses to own a piece of Wellington history."

Attendees can meet the artists, and view and bid on irreplaceable original artwork.
Catalogues and entry to the auction are by donation at
(under campaign 'Art for the Sea').
