3 May 2013

This May, Arena Studios and Gallery will host its 11th Annual Auction in association with Liverpool Art Month. Both established and newly emerging artists from a diverse range of disciplines have submitted work which will be sold at the auction in Elevator Café Bar, Parliament Street, on Friday 3 May 2013.

“Although it is officially stated as the 11th Annual Auction it is thought amongst many that throughout Arena’s 31 year history there have been many, many auctions and this could possibly be around the 26” commented Pamela Sullivan, Arena Studio Manager, “Our auctioneer Paul O’Keeffe remembers that during one of the first Auctions in Arena’s old home in Duke Street, he was asked to sell an opened packet of digestive biscuits… and sell he did, thus beginning a long and illustrious career as Arena’s much loved Auctioneer.”

Auction night is always exciting and the atmosphere electric, as the bids rise higher and higher. Come and join Arena for a fantastic night’s entertainment, free bubbly and the chance to win some great art work from the finest artists living and working in Liverpool today.

The 11th Arena Art Auction artwork will be on view in the Elevator Café Bar, 27 Parliament Street, Liverpool, L8 5RN, from Monday 29 April.  The Auction opens Friday 3rd May at 17.00 for registrations with a 19.00 start to the bidding.
