The annual MCA Bella Dinner will soon be held in Sydney. An annual event, the dinner also hosts a prize draw which costs $1000 to enter, but entrants are guaranteed to win one of 30 fine contemporary pieces. This year they even have a Kusama in the mix (see below).
The Kusama is by far the most valuable piece – and a stunning work in its own right – but for sheer beauty,whimsy and originality, my favourite has to be the Lionel Bawden sculpture made from coloured Staedtler pencils (above).
You can view all the works here. If you want to enter, you’d better be quick, as the draw is notorious for selling out before you can say “Bargain”.
