Postgraduate Art Auction

This year the annual auction will see the walls of the gallery filled with donations from acclaimed artists, as well as artworks fresh from the studios of our current students and recent graduates.

Postgraduate Art Auction 2019: Thursday 14 November

Silent auction and viewing: 5:30 - 8:15pm
Live auction: 6:45 - 7:45pm

The funds raised from the annual Auction are of enormous value to our Postgraduate Art students. UK Postgraduate students are required to make significant financial investment in order to pursue their studies, covering the cost of fees, accommodation and subsistence without the benefit of the deferred government loan that is available to UK undergraduate students.

In previous years the proceeds of the Auction have supported the cost of hiring an external venue for the interim exhibition.  They have also contributed to students’ final degree show installation and catalogue, and a critics’ feedback session that has become a regular event at the end of the year.

We are immensely grateful to the artists who have donated works this year and in previous years for their generosity that has had such a positive impact on the students’ practice. A big thank you to everyone who has supported the auction.

"It is impossible to adequately acknowledge the generosity of the artists in our annual postgraduate auction. It is such an extraordinary gesture, to gift your artwork in the service of others and in the best interests of a future generation.”
