This event will be rescheduled for later in 2022
As you are aware, Covid numbers are rising again and, when taken with the current economic uncertainties, we have regretfully made the decision to postpone Unframed-Art until a later date. We are sorry that we have to take this action but believe it is in the best interest of our community.
Some of you may have already purchased tickets for the event and you will be refunded.
We invite you to join us for the 2022 Peninsula Home Hospice Unframed Art Silent Charity Auction
About Unframed Art
Following on from our successful inaugural event in 2019 which was held at Southern Buoy Studios and then our on line event in 2021, we will this year be aiming to once again to see you at Southern Buoy Studios at 4.30pm late 2022 (COVID-19 restrictions pending).
We have more than 40 excitingly diverse paintings donated for sale – some of Mornington Peninsula’s most renowned artists and some exciting emerging artists who have generously donated their work.
What makes this auction unique?
The front of the artwork is unsigned!
You may recognise the style of your favourite artist and have the opportunity of buying their art at a great price – but, there are no guarantees, the highest bidder wins! You will only know the identity of the artist after you have purchased your artwork.

What are we raising funds for:
Funds raised from Unframed Art 2022 will focus on funding overnight respite* for clients of Peninsula Home Hospice. Our services are provided free to clients and to provide overnight respite nursing costs $800 to $1200 per client per night.
*’Respite’ or ‘respite care’ is when someone else takes care of the client being care for, so that the carer can have a break. A break can give the carer time to do everyday activities or just to relax, deal with stress and look after themselves.
About Peninsula Home Hospice
Peninsula Home Hospice is your community-based palliative care service providing in-home care to those in the community living with a life-limiting illness. Our aim is to provide specialist palliative care in the home that optimises quality of life and honours the hope for comfort, choice, dignity and peace.
Our service is provided free-of-charge to those living within the Mornington Peninsula Shire, City of Frankston and City of Kingston (south of Mordialloc Creek). Peninsula Home Hospice is fortunate to receive support from the Victorian Government but also relies on community fundraising to supplement our funding and ensure we can provide our service to all in our community that need it.
What is Palliative Care?
Palliative care is for anyone of any age (from babies to older adults) who have been diagnosed with a life limiting illness. Palliative care identifies and treats symptoms and issues associated with the illness, which may be physical, emotional, spiritual or social.
For some people, palliative care may be beneficial from the time of diagnosis. It can be provided alongside other treatments (for example treatments for cancer such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation). Some clients access palliative care on and off through various stages of their illness.
Accessing palliative care early can help ensure a person’s values, beliefs and goals for their care are known and respected.
