PRIMARY ART AUCTION FUNDRAISING
Thursday July 4th
Open for viewing from 5.30pm
First Auction 6.30pm
In partnership with Nottingham Trent University, we are holding a fundraising event and auction on Thursday 4 July. We have guest auctioneers Marek Tobolewski, Matthew Chesney and Simon Raven and like PRIMARY itself, the auction will bring together an eclectic range of affordable original works and a ‘one off’ experiences. Here’s a little taster of what’s on offer:-
Michael Pinchbeck has donated tickets to the final night of the The Ashes at Nottingham Playhouse and a souvenir cricket bat signed by the entire cast and crew of the production
Two limited edition prints by Yelena Popova, who recently showed at Frieze New York
Paintings from Mik Godley, Frank Kent, Simon Withers and Michael Forbes
A fabric wall hanging by Nadim Chaudry
Light sculpture by Frank Abbott – who is selling his Soul! ( see image)
“Something” from Reactor
Pen and ink drawings from Indian artist Vidha Saumya, whose work has already been featured in Vogue India
A signed copy of The Photobook (Vol.1) by Martin Parr
A selection of work by Nottingham Trent University students, graduates and alumni, including Andrew Pepper and Lauren Green
A half-day bread-making course with Jelena Anthoney from our artisan bakery, Le Pain a la Main.
If all that sounds pricey, all bidding start at a mere £20!
So come along and support PRIMARY, buy some great art or just come along and enjoy cocktails, home-made ice cream, gourmet pizza, music and performances which are running throughout the night, as well as open artists’ studio and Mrs Ricks Cupboard.
If you are unable to attend the auction itself, PRIMARY will be open from Saturday June 29 to Wednesday July 3 between 12 noon–4pm for viewings, and sealed bids will be accepted.
