A big thank you from the 2nd year Fine Art students collective “ Effergy Art “ at the University of Bolton. The contributions from members of Salford Art club helped swell the total number of artwork offered at auction to over 100. A last minute change of date did not derail the students endeavors. Brilliant teamwork delivered £214 into the kitty for funding their exhibition in May 2017. All items were auctioned anonymously. Lots of banter and good hearted rival bidding. Top price paid was £28.
Unsold items will be offered for sale at the next fund raising event. ( probably Valentine’s Day stall in Chancellors Mall)
This initiative is part of the module “ Employability and Enterprise”, to prepare students for life in the Art world after graduation.
