As part of the auction we have created a piece especially for this event inspired by Charleston House called ‘Poppies and a Pear’. Painted by Hattie and printed onto a silk scarf 90cm x 90cm we hope this will really help the auction, along with 165 other artworks that have been donated. The auction opens on 1 June 2020 on Emily’s Instagram account and bids will close at 4pm (BST) on 20 June 2020. Artists including Teena Vallerine, John Derian, Angie Lewin, Luke Edward Hall, Claudia Rankin, Alice Pattullo, Rory Hutton and many more have generously contributed artworks.
From 1 June 2020, Emily will post each of the 165 artworks on her Instagram account with the lot number, artist bio, medium, size, postage costs and reserve (if applicable).
To place a bid, simply write the amount you would like to bid in £s as a comment on the Instagram post of the artwork. The final bids will be at 4pm (BST) on 20 June 2020. The winning bidder for each artwork will be contacted by Emily on Instagram and will be put in touch with the artist to pay any shipping costs.
The winning bidder will then need to pay for their artwork(s) by making a payment to Charleston’s Emergency Appeal and sending a receipt to the artist. Please do not opt to add Gift Aid to your payment as Charleston is not able to claim Gift Aid on auction sales.
Once the artist has received the shipping costs and the receipt they will send the artwork to the winning bidder.
You can also donate any amount you’d like here.
