On Wednesday 11th December 2013 Pre-Paid Blind Auction took place and £3315.00 was raised, the proceeds from which will be donated to The Artists’ General Benevolent Institution (AGBI) and Global Hope.
Pre-Paid is The Cornerstone Gallery’s bi-annual Charity Postcard Exhibition and Blind Auction that raises funds for The Artists’ Benevolent Institution (AGBI) and Global Hope. It is made possible by the generosity of all artists and bidders who take part.
Whilst a list of all contributors was included within the exhibition, the names were not matched to the individual postcards hence the ‘blind’ in ‘blind auction’ and the investigative challenge to all. Now that all postcards have been successfully auctioned the names have now been matched to the postcards and posted on the Gallery website for all to see.
Previous contributors’ include many local artists, Tracey Emin RA, Sir Peter Blake RA, Paul O’Grady, Alexei Sayle and ex-Everton FC Manager David Moyes, who have all contributed to Liverpool’s prestigious cultural life and continuing development.
Pre-paid is a very exciting event and is eagerly anticipated. It is always an exhibition not to be missed and a great opportunity to acquire a piece of work by a prominent artist of our time.
The Cornerstone Gallery is now closed for maintenance and will re-open in January 2014 for Rachel Sweeney's exhibition Body Topographies. Please visit the Gallery's Future Exhibition web page for further information.
