charity art auction

Progress theatre need to sort their car park out – it’s a bit of a gravelly pot-holed flood plain at the moment. The theatre is run completely voluntarily by the hard working members and to raise money to have the car park all done up they have been running various events over the past 6 months. The most recent is an art auction. For each production a different artist exhibits their work in the bar / foyer. All the artists that have exhibited over the last couple of years were asked if they could donate a piece to the art auction and this is the result. Over 20 watercolours, oils, drawings, prints and textile pieces on show for a month. It is a silent auction so bids can be placed by filling in a slip or contacting one of the organisers. The winners will be announced at the theatre Christmas party. With just over a week left to go, all pieces have bids and some paintings are up to Β£100. I donated three pieces and curated hung the exhibition so I’m particularly pleased that it looks like it’s going to be a huge success.
