Arena Studios will be holding their annual art auction at Elevator Studios in Liverpool’s Baltic area.
The event will take place from 7.30 onward on Thursday 21st July 2016 in the Baltic Social, set on the ground floor of the grade 2 listed warehouse and creative space on Parliament Street.
The auction will showcase pieces from artists based across the city with over 50 works going under the hammer on the night. Works of art range from watercolours to abstract pieces and sculptures. With attractive guide prices and low reserves, there are pieces available to suit a range of budgets and artistic tastes.
All funds raised on the night will be put back into Arena Studios, a registered charity, who occupy studios on the first floor of Elevator building.
Sarah Jane Richards of Arena commented: “This is a brilliant annual event that allows us and lots of our friends and colleagues to showcase our works with some amazing local talent on display. We’ve run the auction for several years and it continues to grow in terms of interest, contributors and momentum – we’ve had lots of enquiries and expect a packed house on the night!”
Arena Studios is dedicated to providing affordable studio spaces for artists, designers and illustrators. Art work for the auction will be displayed in Arena’s gallery on the first floor of the Elevator building during the week prior to the auction.
Alex Kelly, of Elevator commented: “We have some incredible talent in Elevator, be it artistic, creative or musical, with some brilliant pieces coming from the residents of Arena. We’re really pleased that as long standing tenants, they’ve chosen to continue to use the versatile space contained within Elevator for their next auction which I’m sure will be a huge success.”
Maurice, of Arena added: “Arena auction nights have always been exciting and the atmosphere electric, as the bids rise higher and higher. We’d like to invite anyone who’s interested in art to join us, for what I’m sure will be a brilliant night!”
