East Midlands Contemporary Art Auction

Selected from an open submission of paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography and craft, this exhibition represents the quality and diversity of professional art practice in the region today. With a broad range of styles from traditional landscapes to abstract and conceptual, the auction provides an ideal opportunity to acquire original works of art at highly competitive prices.

The 50 displayed works will be sold by public auction on Saturday 12 October. Reserves range from £50 to £500. For items over £100 payments may be spread over a 10-month period with interest free credit available through the Own Art scheme available at the Gallery. Silent bids accepted.

The Own Art scheme is designed to make it easy and affordable for everyone to buy contemporary works of art and craft including ceramics, jewellery, glassware, wood and textiles.

You can borrow up to £2,000, or as little as £100, and pay back the loan in 10 monthly instalments - interest free*.
