Contemporary Art Auction

(Paul Cox)

We went along to the Private View of a contemporary art exhibition at Worthing Museum and Art Gallery. Most work on show is by local artists and makers and on 30th May the work will be auctioned at Tooveys Auctioneers

Nick Toovey of Tooveys Auctioneer's in Washington West Sussex has put together this mixed exhibition as a means of giving artists exposure and pioneering a new way for established and emerging artists to sell their work direct to the public

The auction offers an exciting platform for buyers to acquire pieces of art by established and emerging artists, and a unique opportunity to purchase museum-quality work. The sale will include over 140 works of art by 52 different self-representing artists.

Both Worthing Museum and Horsham Museum are hosting preview exhibitions of work to be auctioned. Do go along and see if anything takes your fancy - being an auction you may pick up a bargain!
