A remarkable opportunity to buy work by distinguished members of the Art Workers’ Guild past and present, and at the same time support a good cause!
The auction will take place in their historic Hall in Bloomsbury, surrounded by portraits of past Masters of the Guild: William Morris, Edwin Lutyens, Arthur Rackham, Walter Crane, Charles Holden and many others.
The auction will feature a painting by artist and Freemason Trevor Frankland, who was also President of the Royal Watercolour Society. Frankland's piece is pictured above.
The Art Workers' Guild is like no other organisation, because the membership represents such a wide range of disciplines, opinions and approaches. They are currently raising money to bring their building up to scratch for the greatly increased use it gets after 100 years. It is currently used by ninety-odd kindred organisations.
The building itself is crucial: it is here that connections are fostered, and the Guild can promote excellence, and the understanding of craftsmanship. The building is the essential hub.
The auction will be available on line at www.artworkersguild.org and on view with a printed catalogue at 6 Queen Square on 16th and 17th November, before a reception and live auction on the evening of 17th. Commission bids may be left.
