GDWG is holding an online art auction in May with a showcase art exhibition in Arundel Museum from 1st to 7th May. The auction and exhibition include works by well renowned artists Jackie Morris and Anita Klein alongside local Arundel and Sussex artists. GDWG Director, Anna Pincus, said ‘the auction and exhibition have something for everyone and feature a huge range of styles. When we put out a call for artists to donate work to the auction, we never imagined the overwhelming generosity that we encountered.’
The exhibition includes Japanese calligraphy and even an opportunity to try out Japanese calligraphy through attending a calligraphy lesson. Large golden prints form part of the exhibition from ‘The Lost Words’ by Jackie Morris. There are ceramics including a blue pottery teapot by Nik Blackwell, there is a signed catalogue by Grayson Perry. Abstract art by Frances Blane sits alongside hyperreal art with images of Brighton by Kabe Wilson. There are landscapes of local interest, flowers, portraits, pictures of animals, an etching, oil paintings, watercolours, miniatures, sculptures and much more packed into the museum. The exhibition includes beautiful framed photographs from Cornwall by Joe Cornish and the Lake District by Rosamund and John Macfarlane and visitors to the auction and exhibition will be intrigued to discover a Mystery Box!
The charity art exhibition opens to the public on 1st May at 10am and runs in Arundel Museum until 7th May at 4pm. The online auction runs from 10am on 1st May to midnight on 31st May.
