One of Sydney's most celebrated interior design specialists, Garth Barnett died suddenly last October.

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.

This inspired him to support Interior and Spatial Design and Architecture students for years to come, through the endowment of generous scholarships and prizes valued at $130,000 annually via the establishment of the Garth Barnett Scholarship Trust.

More than 60 items from his private collection, including a Sidney Nolan, will be auctioned, with all proceeds from the auction to be donated to the trust to assist students facing barriers to education.

6pm (canapes and drinks) for 7pm auction start.
