Fundraising Auction 2017

It was another fantastic year for our Fundraising Auction during the Open Studios weekend. All of the artists in our building kindly donated a mini-work for this fun event – with all proceeds going back into the studios and enabling our spaces to remain affordable for Bristol-based artists.

A massive thank you to everybody who attended and / or made a bid. Your support is much appreciated.
