FELTspace Fundraising Auction 2016
So, it's that time again. FELTspace is holding it's annual fundraising auction this week and you can actually give a little (or a lot) to this incredible organisation and the arts community in general.
This is how it works this year: take a look at the art up for grabs in the two days preceding the auction. You can decide on your faves and smash your piggy banks in anticipation. (You can also have a squiz here at the works up for grabs). Then, come along to the auction at the cute and totally pro Compton St gallery on Friday November 25, where the bar will open at 5.30pm (very important at auctions) and the bidding starts at 6.30pm. Get as many drinks in as you can before the bidding starts so you're loose with your change and your rivals will be too, so you'll end up with the piece that was just outta your budget. FELTspace will thank you dearly. This year, 40% of the price received for each piece will go straight back to the artist, a telling tale that even though this is a fundraising auction, FELTspace know how to do it right. There are so many artists giving this year - Celeste Aldahn, Roy Ananda, Richard Bell, Louise Haselton, Anna Horne, Olivia Kathigitis, Zoe Kirkwood, Sue Kneebone and Christian Lock to name a minuscule portion.
