FREE RANGE 2019 ART AUCTION SUCCCESS for UCC Students
A recent student-led, BA Fine Art Auction, held at the Three Wise Monkeys, raised funds to take their degree show to FREE RANGE [London, UK], Europe’s largest graduate showcase in the summer of 2019.
BA Fine Art and Photography Year 3 Students organised and curated a highly successful Art Auction at the Three Wise Monkey’s in Colchester on the 15thNovember 2018. Student collated and curated works from generous artwork donations by staff, students, alumni and artists as part of an evening Art Auction, Limited Edition tote bags for sale, a Raffle and live music from Danny Salfairso’s Keepers of Time.
Across the evening, £1520 was raised [£1296 from the auction and £224 from the raffle and tote bags]. This was a fantastic achievement and excellent, well organised evening, which was completely student led.
This has made a significant contribution to the costs of being involved in the Art Week at FREE RANGE, which totals £3360.00. A season of graduate art, design and photography exhibitions, held every summer at the Old Truman Brewery, London. 3,000 students take over 3 floors of warehouse space showcasing their work, with exhibitions changing weekly. Free Range includes workshops, talks, and awards, forming the largest creative graduate showcase in Europe.
