What The Festival Art Auction

SAT 30 APR, 9.30PM @OPPOSITE

 

To celebrate our first year, WTF Café and Gallery is giving back to the community with a celebratory charity art auction as part of WHAT THE FESTIVAL. The event is open for public and will take place on 30 April 2011 at Opposite and include over 15 different artists with the goal of raising funds to purchase art supplies and food for village children in Kanchanaburi (see information below).



Our artistic policy is to bring great art to the people of Bangkok; to make it accessible, uplifting and transformative. Seeing art should be as easy as a night out on the town. We are hoping that this charity art auction is also a great way for artists to be promoted to collectors, institutions and the general public whilst giving back to society. 


Each artist will be represented on the WTF website, e-newsletters and the auction catalogue.


The event will begin with a one-hour preview with drinks and food where the guests can view the art works. We will create an inviting display. The preview hour will be a time for browsing and socializing, and our skilled auctioneer will be available to discuss the displayed works, and answer any questions that you or your guests may have.

 

Immediately following the preview, we begin the live auction, which should run for an hour. Our own professional, entertaining and experienced will provide a fun-filled and informative auction in a relaxed atmosphere. This may be your chance to own an artwork by one of Thailand’s prominent artists, as all bids will start from 1,000 Baht.
