ANNOUNCING THE DORSET ART WEEKS ONLINE AUCTION | 7- 19 JULY
Following the cancellation of this year’s Dorset Art Weeks (the UK’s largest free arts festival) over 80 artists present their works in an online auction open from 7 -19 July.
Featuring over 200 items, covering: paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, sculpture, ceramics, glass, textiles, jewellery, mixed media, furniture and stoneware.
Alex Brooks Furniture is proud to be a part of this event and line up – follow the auction event to view and bid on furniture pieces from across my collections as well as a number of items from fellow artists.
The auction will be held in conjunction with The Auction Hub and Dorset Visual Arts.
The Auction Hub – founded in 2019 by James Harvey with online technology by Auctionet – was a sponsor of Dorset Art Weeks 2020 and James hit upon the idea of an online auction to take the place of the festival and provide a sales platform for artists’ specially created works. Commenting on the auction initiative James said, ’Dorset Art Weeks is a key, high profile event in the Summer calendar, with artists preparing up to two years in advance. We are delighted to present this online auction, showcasing the incredible talent from the county, to local, national and international audiences. The sheer range of items on offer will attract and delight many bidders and buyers during these exceptional times’.
Many works in the auction take their inspiration from the countryside and coastlines to be found across the vast expanses of Dorset. Whereas other artists bring their experience of working and living outside the county and the UK to their works created in Dorset.
