Seevic Art Auction Success
Monday, 08 December 2014
The Creative Arts department at Seevic College had an excellent result at their Art Auction last week; with over £1,200 raised toward funding this year’s Creative Arts Final Show.
Students from the Foundation Diploma and HND Art & Design courses all submitted works for the Auction, with lots in a range of sizes and shapes; from large pieces of furniture and sizeable art works, to delicate handmade jewellery and miniature sculptures.
The biggest seller of the night was a set of waterbuck antlers, upcycled, painted and finished with a chain for display purposes. The waterbuck skull and horns – by Foundation Diploma in Art & Design student Olivia L. Carus – fetched £145, and will make a striking addition to any collection.
With the Art Auction’s total profits, the Creative Arts department is almost half way to its £2,500 goal – the money is required to secure a new external venue for the end-of-year art exhibition in 2015. It is hoped that achieving this goal will allow the department to take the Final Show to London’s Brick Lane, bringing the great work of some 400 Creative Arts students to an even wider audience in the summer.
Congratulations to all the students that took part and submitted work to the auction, as well to all the lucky bidders who went home with some fantastic artwork. Seevic would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making the College’s first Art Auction such a tremendous success.
