About Our Auction
This is our online pre-auction for our Open Studios live auction on 16th June 2019.
Every summer Jamaica Street Studios opens its doors to the public for a weekend celebration of artistry - including a launch, new commissions, meeting artists, buying art-work, drinking and dancing at our party with Jamaica St Stores.
Our Fundraising Auction is our crowning jewel. Each of our studio artists are tasked to create a new small-scale artwork to be auctioned off. This is completely unique opportunity to bag yourself a bargain art-work from a locally beloved and internationally renowned visual artist.
All money raised from our auction goes towards the cost of running our studio. Each year we have to raise approx £5,000 or we risk losing our space.
Please note: all art-works will be auctioned off at the live auction on the 16th June. We will start bids at the highest bid raised at the end of this online auction. If you will not be able to attend the live auction, please email email@example.com, to receive information on how to access phone bidding.
