One 4 Kids are delighted to be hosting our third Contemporary Art Auction, in association with RUDA UK, on Friday 3rd of June 2016.
The evening will start at 18:00 pm with a Drinks and Canapés Reception in the Grand Hall of 200 St Vincent Street in Glasgow. The Auction will then commence at 19:00 pm in the adjoining Glasgow Suite. We have secured the excellent Ali Logan as our Auctioneer again.
Louise Johnstone of RUDA UK, and an artist in her own right, has been busy gathering works, kindly donated by her many connections in the art world. We will have in the region of 100 works to auction on the night. The pieces will predominantly be paintings with some sculptures, pottery, photographs and jewellery too. One of the paintings to be auctioned is a self-portrait by Scottish artist Jack Vettriano.
Our last auction, held in October 2011, was a tremendous success, raising in the region of £27,000 for the Ntimbanjayo Memorial School of Excellence in Songea, Tanzania. This allowed huge progress to be made at the school which now has over 180 pupils. This project is extremely close to the Group’s heart with a team of volunteers planning to visit the school for a third time in September. Funds raised at our event in June will go towards constructing a much needed dormitory block at the school with laundry facilities.
As with every one of our fundraisers, the cost of the auction will be picked up entirely by the Group. This allows every penny raised at the auction to go directly to the school.
