Artists at Home Online Charity Auction
It’s been a tough year for many of us, but there are others in our community who have had a really hard time.
Members of Artists At Home would like to give something back this Christmas by raising money for a local charity, The Upper Room, which does so much for the homeless. Their vision is to support & improve the lives of vulnerable people in our community. Participating in our charity auction will help provide hot meals, clothing, toiletries, help finding & applying for jobs, as well as bilingual counselling for those with mild to moderate mental health issues. theupperroom.org.uk
Artists At Home is a West London group founded in 1973, with members across Chiswick, Hammersmith & Shepherds Bush. Disciplines include: painting, glass-making, ceramics, printmaking, sculpture, photographs, textiles, and jewellery. This year, our annual open studios event went virtual. We updated our website, with each artist having their own mini site, showcasing up to 50 pieces from each of our 100 talented artists. www.artistsathome.co.uk
Based upon this success we’re conducting this two-week Christmas online auction.
Bidding begins Monday 16th November 2020, 10am (UK) & closes Sunday 29th November 2020, 9pm (UK)
Our generous artists are each donating a percentage of the winning bid price to The Upper Room – you can see this figure in the description of each individual lot. Some artists are donating 100% of the proceeds, and many are giving 50% or more. Postage (extra) or collection to be arranged separately.
A winning bid not only secures a unique desirable item for you or your friends & family this Christmas, but also makes a donation to the homeless.
There are no reserve prices and the bid increments can be seen in the lot details, as well as other information about it including a link to the artist’s page on the AAH website where you can see more of their work.
Once the auction closes at 9pm on 29th November winning bidders will be contacted directly by Jumblebee for their payment. Once payment has been received the agreed percentage will be donated to The Upper Room, and the balance returned to the artist.
