As an alternative to the annual auction, Hastings Arts Forum
will now be running a two week show during the same period
in February in order to raise funds. Like the auction, we will
be asking members to donate art work for sale but unlike the
auction there will be no event at which the work is auctioned
off. Instead, the 2016 fundraising show will be an open show,
with all work donated on display in the gallery for two weeks
with a minimum price of £50. Whilst the show is up, visitors
will be able to place bids of above £50. At the end of the two
weeks each item will be sold to the person with the highest bid.
To encourage member artists to donate good work which will
attract a higher selling price, the normal Hastings Arts Forum
commission rate will be reversed, so effectively the gallery will
take 70% and the artist will receive 30% of the highest bid.
(Should you be willing to donate the total selling price we
would be very grateful).
Additionally, you will be able to Gift Aid your donation
when you deliver your artwork to us.
Highest bids will be announced on Monday the 22nd February
The Exhibition is now open.
Please come to the Open View on 12 February 6.30 – 8.30pm
