Art Auction – Artists Against Food Poverty

4th October 2019

On October 26th Brecon Foodbank will be holding an art auction at The Neuadd, Christ College, viewing beginning at 5.45pm, auction at 7pm, in order to raise funds for the Foodbank.  Since its foundation in 2014, the Foodbank has fed increasing numbers of people, and in 2018 we fed 553 people, including 154 children.  Food and other essential items are all generously donated by schools, churches, businesses, community groups and individuals in Brecon and the surrounding area, and without these donations we would not be able to operate. But at the same time we need to raise funds as well, to cover our running costs.

Our auction is being supported by local artists, who have kindly donated a variety of different works.  Other lots have been gifted by individuals; these include an original work Meg Stevens, two originals by Pip Woolf, and a numbered print by Sir Kyffin Williams.  Ardent Gallery and Sable and Hogg have also donated items.

A catalogue can be viewed on-line here, and bids can also be placed by e-mail via the catalogue until 5pm on Thursday, 24th October; please follow the instructions in the catalogue.  Viewing opens at The Neuadd, Christ College on Saturday 26th at 5.45pm, and the auction will begin at 7.00pm.  Tickets cost £5, which includes a first drink and light refreshments, and entry to the raffle.  With live music by Mike Chappell during the viewing, it promises to be a truly enjoyable evening.  So please do come along on the evening and support us, or if you can’t, bid for a picture beforehand on-line!  Happy bidding!
