The Baths Auction is looking for Art Work
The Baths Auction is seeking a number of works for a three day charity event taking place inside the historic Govanhill Baths from March 17th - 19th, 2011. Proceeds of the auction will support the Govanhill Baths Community Trust and its campaign to restore the building to public use. Artists will have the option of a full (100% of proceeds to charity) or partial (50% to charity 50% back to artist) donation of their works.
The auction will take place in two parts: first, a three day exhibition and silent auction, and secondly, a live auction on the evening of the 19th. All accepted works will be for sale in the silent auction with a starting bid of £20. All following bids must be made in £10 increments or more. Fully donated works (100% to charity) will be marked as such at the exhibition. A selection of the most sought after works from the silent auction will move on to the live auction to be sold alongside works from invited well-established artists.
In accordance with the Govanhill Baths Community Trust's primary aims of benefiting the local area, one third of exhibited work at the Bath's auction will be selected from applicants within the Govanhill community. The remaining two thirds are open to all artists working in any auctionable media. All accepted work must be delivered to the Govanhill Baths Community Trust office by March 1st and be ready to display upon delivery.
