An auction of artworks by the late Carol Anne Bauer and her friend Pat Fry at No.23 Gallery in Carterton ran successfully last Saturday, organisers said.
“No. 23 shout a huge thank you to all those who participated in the auction and made it such a success,” spokeperson Judith Jagger said.
“All purchasers went away with smiles and some wonderful investments at terrific prices. Graeme Burnard, our auctioneer extraordinaire, did a fantastic job encouraging hearty competition between bidders. He may be adding another skill to his increasing CV.”
The silent and blind auctions were also a success, with more than 20 “happy art lovers”, Jagger said.
“We also wish to thank the Bauer family for helping No.23 in their fundraising efforts. Our shop’s building is on the market, so we will be utilising the funds to find a new location when the building has been sold.”
Meanwhile, Heart of Arts gallery is hosting an exhibition of works by Ursula Macfarlane, who uses her science and technology background to create photographs with “off-kilter subjects”. Macfarlane was an artist in the SOLO51 exhibition at the NZ Academy of Fine Arts in Wellington this year. THIS IS NOT AI runs in Carterton until December 14.
