Auction is open!
Our 2019 fundraising Art Auction is now open. You don't have long as bidding closes at 6pm on 4th November, but thankfully you can view and bid online or at the exhibition in our galleries.
The auction will raise vital funds to support our core work. Over the last few years we have been successful in securing funding for a variety of different projects that have enabled us to work with many different groups that sometimes cannot access the creative opportunities our town has to offer. We have worked with disadvantaged young people, isolated older people and those with mental health conditions. We have been able to provide many of these creative activities free of charge and this is now a core part of our work.
As a charity ourselves we still need to raise money to ensure that we continue to provide a high quality arts experience for our community and build on the projects and activities that we have delivered. To help with this fundraising effort, a community of artists have very generously donated original prints, paintings, sculptures and ceramic work to the Centre for this auction.
Money raised from the sales of these wonderful artworks will go towards supporting our work, here at the Horsebridge Arts Centre. 5% of the proceeds will be donated to the Pilgrims Hospice in Canterbury. This is in memory of our colleague Ray Hall who sadly died earlier this year and was cared for so beautifully by them.
