Affordable Art Auction at g39Posted: December 7, 2014
Another fund raising concept we adopted from previous years Fine Art is the affordable art auction. We purchased a black or white frame for each third year student and we each filled (or overfilled) a frame with a piece of work to be hung up for auction at g39. The auction began last Wednesday (3rd December) and the pieces collectively looked brilliant and I liked how they represented the year group, highlighting the aesthetic and conceptual differences between us all. I used one of my most recent screen prints to fill my black frame, which I was eventually unhappy with because of the success of everyone else’s and how stunning they all looked. Each piece begins at £10 so this event should be fairly successful in bumping up our current total! I bid on number 12 – the piece in the bottom left of the final photograph in this post, because it’s colours were alluring and I found the markings and additions really intriguing, and collectively really comforting.
