Charity Art Auction

I've been overwhelmed by the support I've received for the planned auction to raise money for Bootvluchteling. Over a dozen artists from all over the world have already promised to donate a piece to the cause, and there is still time if you would like to donate something, or know someone who would. Just get in touch and let me know.

The auction will take place on facebook from the 14th-16th December. Although there are some people who do not use facebook, I feel the advantages in terms of the ease of sharing the event outweigh this factor. The event page can be found here and photographs of all the pieces being auctioned will be listed here over the next week, along with information about the artists taking part. The link to the actual auction album will go live at the start of the auction. Bids can be made as comments on each item's photograph with the highest bid at the end of the auction winning the piece.

The auction is going live on Monday for 48 hours so there is still time to donate a piece if you would like to get involved. Artists are sending their pieces to the winning bidder directly so there is no middle man. That way you have up until the weekend to create something if you suddenly feel inspired!

Participating artists so far include;

Michelle Hazell
Ciarrai Samson
