This from Rachel and Emma .....

Never before has the planet so urgently needed us to act. What can we do, as individuals, to preserve the natural world for our own children & future generations? Rachel Knepfer and Emma Schofield asked themselves how they could use their knowledge, skills and experience to make a difference. Inspired by the dedication, hard work & unparalleled expertise of the Wilderness Society, they struck on the idea of a large-scale contemporary art exhibition, with an auction to directly benefit the environment through this trusted organisation.

In turn, the Wilderness Society is thrilled to collaborate with the art world.


Emma and Rachel looked first to family and friends. Anne Schofield offered her elegant upstairs gallery in Woollahra. Sam Christie guides the catering, while art critic and good friend Hannah Fink lends expertise, and Andrew Shapiro, auctioneer extraordinaire, presides over the live auction. And every day, an ever-widening circle of friends is asking how they can contribute.

Art for the Wilderness will bring together an array of work by Australia’s most beloved and respected artists, in a beautiful space, for 3 days from 30th August, all to be auctioned at 5pm on the auspicious date of September 1st: the first day of Spring.

100% of proceeds will go directly to support the vital work of the Wilderness Society in protecting our unique places and wildlife threatened with extinction. They are a powerful voice calling for new nature laws that will protect, restore and sustain the environment for generations to come. Every sale will be supporting the living world that supports us all.
