Elephant in the Room:
A fundraising exhibition for the Animal Welfare League
held this November at the Brenda May Gallery in
Sydney, brought together a wide variety of artworks
with themes ranging from Australia's colonial days and
the killing of wildlife to the age-old love humankind
has for its domestic creatures. Artists included Patsy Payne whose work lent its title to the exhibition, Peter
Tilley, Nicole Welch and Claude Jones. Twenty percent
from the sale of these artworks directly benefitted
the Animal Welfare League NSW, a charity which has
operated for over 50 years, maintaining two shelters,
a veterinary clinic and 12 branches which care for
surrendered, neglected and abandoned animals.
