Success! Online Art Auction in support of the Blyth Festival
Blyth Festival partnered with volunteers and artists from around the province and created a fun and creative way to support the Blyth Festival while adding original works of art to enthusiastic bidders’ collections.
Each work of art was created by local and regional artists and donated to help the Blyth Festival in this challenging time. The Auction Committee and Blyth Festival staff are so grateful to all the artists for their generosity and support for Blyth Festival. All works of art were given an assigned value which was established by the artists and auction bids started at 50% of the value. Bid increments were increased by $5.00 or more and the final outcome of the flurry of last minute bidding was a total of $16,790.00!
The earliest bids were accepted as of November 10th at 10 am and the final bids came in seconds before 10 am on December 10.
Timing of deliveries or mailing of purchased pieces:
Blyth Festival will be contacting all purchasers directly starting Dec 10 to finalize credit card payments and delivery/pick up/shipping arrangements.
Shipping charges of $20.00 per piece may apply. If you purchase more than one piece and need it mailed we will inform you of the cost by phone or email.
We are so pleased with the response to this exciting online art auction. And we invite you continue to support the arts organizations that are close to your hearts. We all need your support now more than ever.
