Preceded by a 10-day exhibition, the next Affordable Art Auction at Browns ASR Auctions in Jedburgh should make up for some of the exhibiting and selling opportunities artists have lost due to the pandemic.
A total of 45 pieces will be auctioned. These include new work exclusive to the auction by figurative artist Julie Barnes; Cassandra Harrison’s Haymarket, which was shown earlier this year at the Visual Art Scotland members’ winter exhibition; a striking acrylic on aluminium portrait by Gill Walton, who recently completed a residency at Marchmont House; mixed media works by Inverness-based Martin Irish; street art-inspired pieces by Robbie Mackintosh; and works by the Latvian painter Yelena Visemirska. Landscape artists feature strongly again, including David Hay, Anne White and Lida Hatrick.
Individual estimates range from £75 to £1,500. There is an online catalogue and viewings are available by appointment from 24th May.
