Artfully Oakhaven auction and exhibition
Throughout September, we held our biennial Artfully Oakhaven online auction and we're delighted to report that Artfully Oakhaven 2023 has raised £9,000.
Over 100 works of art were generously donated by local artists for the auction, which launched online at the beginning of September. The art was displayed at a special exhibition at Lymington Masonic Hall from 22nd to 24th September. Around 400 people visited the exhibition over the course of the weekend and 200 bids were made for the works of art.
A wide range of art for all ages
The range of art on offer in this year's auction was impressive, with oil paintings, watercolours, etchings, prints, sculptures and much more - making the collection highly desirable for all ages.
This year's youngest Artfully auction bidder was art lover 8-year-old Blake (pictured below), who visited the exhibition with his family. Blake took a shine to a painting by Peter Ashwood and with the blessing of his parents he placed a bid. He was very excited to have the winning bid, spending his own pocket money and birthday money on the artwork.
Thank you to all who supported Artfully
We would like to thank the artists who so generously donated pieces of art and everyone who supported Artfully Oakhaven. All funds raised will help Oakhaven to provide care and support to patients at end of life - and their loved ones - both at the hospice in Lymington and in own homes throughout our New Forest, Totton and Waterside community.
Our next Artfully Oakhaven auction will take place in September 2025 - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to donate a piece of art.
