The exhibition opens on February 24, and kicks off at 6pm in the upstairs gallery at Fitzroy’s Old Bar. Bidding starts at $20, and the night will be hosted by comedian Andrew McClelland.

Music begins at 8pm, and you will dance the night away to the likes of Melbourne bands The Book Of Ships, The Yard Apes, Skyscraper Stan and The Once Overs.

The exhibition runs til March 10, and a preview will be available on Facebook here from February 15, so those who can’t attend the auction can still place a bid.

Entry is $8, and all proceeds will go directly to the Salvation Army Flood Appeal, which supports both the Queensland and Victorian flood victims.
