A silent auction/raucous party was held at Double Double Land to raise cash for friend and zinester Mark Connery after a fire gutted his house (no-one was harmed fortunately-at the fire or party!).
The affair was organized by the super powers of Marc Bell and Graham Hollings.
The invite read:
AUCTIONED ARTWORKS by Mark Connery (including SMOKE DAMAGED drawings!), Shary Boyle, The White House, Jay Isaac, Barefoot Immortal, Damien Hurst, Olia Mishchenko, Peter Thompson, Wowee Zonk, Marc Bell, Marcel Duchamp, Robert Dayton, Amy Lockhart, Bill Bisset, Michael DeForge, Margaux Williamson, Keith Jones, The Royal Family Album, Jeff Koons, Fiona Smyth, Jason McLean, Elvis Stoikoe'd, Jonny Petersen, and many more famous artists...
