HWAT Art Auction
Friday 30th April 2010

The Harleston and Waveney Trail is delighted to announce that we will be holding a special fundraising Auction of Art & Promises on Friday 30th April 2010 at The Swan Hotel in Harleston. The auction will be a lively and exciting event, with a fabulous selection of items to bid on, from paintings and ceramics, sculptures and textiles to some more surprising and unusual promises from artists.

Some artists are offering workshops in their own studios, a wonderful opportunity for one-to-one art tuition. Tickets for a Jazz concert will also be up for bids, as are a range of art materials and tools of the trade donated by HWAT artists. A good selection of donated art books will also be available to buy, along with small craft objects, and there will also be a prize raffle.

There will be some highly collectible artworks up for bidding too. David Page, a lecturer at Hornsey Art School in the 1960’s, is donating seven Hornsey Protest posters, printed from the original lino blocks.
