Annual Richmond art auction raising money for environmental projects
Art lovers can attend an annual auction that celebrates the borough’s hidden treasures and raises money for environmental projects.
The theme for the Environment Trust for Richmond’s auction this year is then and now.
The themes is linked to the trust’s new volunteer historic building project that raises awareness of the historic built environment with elements of the past that co-exist with the modern.
More than 40 images of the borough in a variety of media, including watercolour, oil, acrylic, linocuts and etchings have been donated by artists.
Auctioneer and fine art dealer John Iddon says: “We are, as ever, indebted to our artists who so generously donate their work to help the work of the trust.
“Because it is an auction amazing bargains are to be had on the night – there are some wonderful paintings.”
Prices for individual pieces start from as little as £20, with others reaching more than £1,500, and last year the event raised nearly £13,000.
Then and Now, Environment Trust for Richmond art auction at York House, Twickenham; Thursday, November 21; 6.30pm to 8pm. Tickets £10 including refreshments. Visit environmenttrust.co.uk/art-auction.html.
