In addition to the Christmas Fair and Concerts, Normansfield Theatre is also the venue for an art exhibition and auction in aid of the Teddington School redevelopment project which is due to finish in September 2010. The school is hoping to raise £250,000 through various means towards the final elements of the project which are detailed on the schools Justgiving page – every penny donated counts so even if you can’t make it to the auction you can help by donating online.
Well established and celebrated artists have donated works for the auction so it presents a unique chance to get hold of a prestigious and rare piece at a local event.
On Friday December 4th (6:30-10:00pm) and Saturday December 5th (10:00am-4:00pm) tickets are available for £5 and £3 respectively. Art lovers will be given a chance to take a closer look at the works in the exhibition before the auction.
Artists work will include paintings, charactertures, pen/ink, sketchings and photos from Elizabeth Blackadder, Peter Blake, Bernard Dunstan, Antony Gormley and Albert Irwin plus local artists, celebrities works including Ian Hislop, Ricky Gervais, Andrew Marr as well as work from Teddington School students.
The auction itself will be conducted by Christie’s international auctioneer Hugh Edmeades.
