IPSWICH artists are doing their bit for hospice by donating some beautiful work for this week's Art Show Exhibition and Auction.

All proceeds from the fundraiser will go toward Ipswich Hospice Care, so that it can continue to provide palliative care and bereavement support.

More than 60 works of art will be on display and up for auction at the show.

Hospice spokeswoman Niccola Harwood said a few artists from outside the Ipswich region had contributed work for the fundraiser.

"Local artists have donated significant pieces to Ipswich Hospice, demonstrating the enormous generosity of the local community in Ipswich," she said.

"There are also a few pieces donated from artists in the wider Brisbane area.

"As a charity, only a small amount of hospice's funding comes from the government.

"Therefore this fundraiser will be an important event to be a part of to help support Ipswich Hospice to continue to provide such important services to our community."

The Art Show Exhibition is free, with pre-auction viewing starting Wednesday, September 3, leading up to the auction on Friday night.

Glen Smith of GasART will be the curator of the exhibition, providing a visually stimulating display of the donated artworks.

The auction will be held from 6pm on Friday, September 5, at the Ipswich Community Art Gallery, d'Arcy Doyle Place on Limestone St.

Tickets for the Art Show Auction are $25 per person and include an evening of fine wine and hors d'oeuvres prior to the start of the auction.

Invitations to the auction can be downloaded from the hospice site: http://www.ipswichhospice.org.au. Phone hospice on 3812 0063 for more information.
