80 artists from across the county are involved in Dorset Art Weeks 2020 online auction, make your bid now!
Following the cancellation of this year’s Dorset Art Weeks (DAW) over 80 of the participating Dorset-based artists have now put their work online. More than 200 items covering paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, sculpture, ceramics, glass, textiles, jewellery, mixed media, furniture and stoneware are now up for sale to the highest bidder in this joint event run by The Auction Hub and Dorset Visual Arts. Founded in 2019 by James Harvey, with online technology by Auctionet, The Auction Hub was a sponsor of Dorset Art Weeks 2020. James hit upon the idea of an online auction to provide a sales platform for artists’ specially created works. “Dorset Art Weeks is a high-profile event, with artists preparing for the event up to two years in advance,” he says. “This online auction not only showcases the incredible talent from the county to a global audience, but also offers the public access to buy these works.”
Bidding starts from £50 for Ann Sim’s cheeseboard in ash, up to £16,000 for Aqueous III a stainless-steel sculpture by Andy Hopper. The online auction is now open and bids can be placed up until 19 July. Bidders will see the latest and highest bid against each work before placing their own bid. Successful buyers can collect directly from The Auction Hub in Westbury, or request a shipping quote directly from The Auction Hub. View all the pieces up for auction and get bidding here ,
