Save Bild-Werk Frauenau!
Benefit Auction for Bild-Werk Frauenau: 3 October 2021
Once again we have a Benefit Auction for Bild-Werk Frauenau. This time, however, the success of the auction will be essential for our survival: Our financial position after two Covid summers is desperate. So we invite you to view the exciting artworks for sale, and that you will buy wonderful new works that will grace your home, your business, or perhaps make a good gift!
For this unique collection of artworks we have to thank all the artists, our teachers and teaching assistants, who have contributed their talents by giving us wonderful artworks for sale. Artists give so much and have also been hit hard by the pandemic. These works come from all the studio areas represented in Bild-Werk, from all glass areas, to painting, printmaking, ceramics and sculpture. A very unique and special detail of interest to many of you will be those pieces made in Bild-Werk, several where two or more teachers have cooperated across disciplines. These artworks are international and only possible in our academy sessions.
For those who are able to attend the auction in person you will experience all of the usual raz-ma-taz of Bild-Werk, meet many of the represented artists, and have the chance to bid for objects that take your fancy. If you are unable to attend then please make written bids for your favourite pieces. The Bild-Werk office will be happy to assist you in navigating how this is done. The catalogue can be viewed online: https://www.bildwerkfrauenau.de/benefizauktion-2021.html
Bild-Werk will celebrate 35 years next year, and we hope that we can continue to offer innovative courses within our creative academies for years to come. Please support us in any ways that you can.
