So lockdown put pay to many local Art festivals this year so far including my local event Purbeck Art Weeks. His year I was moving away from my home Open Studio as now sharing the shop in Swanage it was logical to work from there. Also I was going to exhibit a wider range of pictures in the main venue Rollington Barn.
As an idea PAW has teamed up with Wareham Tower Chimes to hold an online auction where 25% of the proceeds will go to the Dorset Community Covid – 19 fund.
35 artists have put forward 277 works to be auctioned off. The reserve / estimate prices have yet to be added but all of the works can be seen. The auction will be held on Sunday 14 June from 3pm.

I have 10 pieces from £10 to £200 in value – all are original artworks. I hope that the event is a success, but I still want to do the traditional format in 2021 because the meeting people face to face is one of the best aspects of being an artist.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-3522-61023bef093ef' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=3522&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-3522-61023bef093ef' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-3522-61023bef093ef'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
