We invite you to a special evening to honour the contribution of one of the Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building’s most generous financial benefactors, Garth Barnett. Revered for his classic and opulent style, Garth was respected as one of Sydney’s most celebrated interior design specialists.

The event will commence with a cocktail reception, followed by formal proceedings and an auction which will see 64 of Garth’s most prized possessions, including a Sidney Nolan, up for sale.

As the principal of his own design agency, Garth was particularly touched by his experience of working with UTS students during the later stages of his career. The self-taught designer came to appreciate the positive impact a university education can have and was particularly inspired to support students facing barriers to education.

All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Garth Barnett Scholarship Trust, which has been established by his close circle of family and friends. This will support future UTS Interior and Spatial Design and Architecture students for years to come, through the endowment of generous scholarships and prizes valued at $130,000 annually.

We hope that you’re able to attend this very special evening which will celebrate art, design and a very generous and talented man, and help support our students into the future – please register your attendance below.
