CamRuSS Easter Art Sale – 12-26 March 2021
Friday 19 March, 19:00 - 20:30
Following the success of the first event, we would like to invite you to take part in our second online Easter Art Sale. Artworks will be available for viewing and bidding from 12 to 26 March 2021.
This time, we plan to extend the range of items on offer to include not only paintings and graphic art but a wider variety of art and craft pieces. We welcome any original, contemporary or antique pieces: artworks, ornaments, textiles, ceramics, etc., particularly, but not only, those originating in Russia or the former Soviet Republics.
We aim to avoid offering any mass-produced items, in order to continue promoting independent creators. Please consider donating if you wish to find a new home for your art and/or craftworks which could cheer up your Cambridgeshire neighbour, whilst also supporting our charity.
We have also slightly amended the terms of the forthcoming auction. For artists, CamRuSS is proposing to equally split the proceeds of the sold item(s) with the contributors (the authors) to show our appreciation of the local art community and support for independent artists. All other items will be treated as donations.
We will donate some of the accumulated funds to Gift of Life Charity which helps children and young adults in Russia to beat cancer and life-threatening blood diseases.
Please send a photograph with a brief description such as year, origin, author’s name, etc. of the work(s) you wish to donate or any further questions to Elena Richer firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
The deadline for submission of artworks and donations is Sunday 28 February.
The auction catalogue will be available for preview to CamRuSS member on 10 March and for the wider community on 12 March here.
The auction will go live on the electronic auction platform Jumblebee at midday on 12 March and will close at midnight on 26 March. You will need to register on the auction website with your e-mail address to submit your bid.
