Paintings by Sydney gay artist Bill Morley discovered in boxes at the TAP Gallery will be sold off this week to raise money for the gallery and GLBT community causes.
The paintings were left in boxes at the gallery by Morely’s partner after Bill’s passing in 2007, and he has also now passed.
The Last Trove of Bill Morley’s Works show will run from tonight with opening drinks from 6-8pm until Sunday July 10 at the gallery at 278 Palmer St, Darlinghurst.
Almost all the artwork is unframed and will be sold at what the gallery is calling “truly giveaway prices,” with the goal of seeing Morley’s paintings being retained in the community he loved and by his friends.
All works must be sold with 50 percent of the proceeds going to charity.
Morley was inducted into the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Hall of Fame in 2000.
