Last weekend, Enter Gallery hosted our Art Yard Sale ONLINE, and it was one of the most exciting yet!
Art collectors from around the world couldn’t get enough of the pieces created especially for the event, with many of the prints selling out in record time.
In today’s blog, we’re providing some snaps of our Art Yard Sale gallery wall and the artist’s that popped into the gallery over the weekend to see their artworks hanging pride of place.
This year’s Art Yard Sale ONLINE featured limited edition and timed release works from an excellent array of more than 30 contemporary artists.
Alongside beloved Brighton artists that we’ve worked with for a while, such as Boogaloo Stu, Mike Edwards and Sarah Arnett, the Art Yard Sale ONLINE featured works from exciting new additions to the gallery, such as Ben Slow, Caroline Chinakwe, Mr Preston and Arthur.
Speaking of Arthur, here he is posing alongside his piece, Mind Over Money – a lively artwork that brings together the hand-style he has developed over 25 on the UK graffiti scene. Characterised by bright colours and vivid shapes, Arthur’s work makes a statement that Art Yard Sale buyers heard loud and clear.
Maria Rivans brought a touch of old school glamour to the sale via the latest addition to her widely-collected Pin-Ups series. In Myrle, Rivans depicts Irish actress, Peggy Cummins, sporting an elaborate headdress crafted from peacock feathers.
Hannah Shillito’s Destroy the Patriarchy, Not the Planet sold out fast upon its initial release, helped by an appearance in British Vogue. For the sale, Shillito created a mini print version of her shimmering triptych offering an empowering message to fight for equality and to protect our planet.
Following the enormous success of Ghost Town – Haus of Lucy’s solo show at Enter Gallery back in July - her contribution to the Art Yard Sale ONLINE continued her exploration of the high street.
In Walk in the Park, which is still available as a framed piece, Lucy offers her interpretation of View of the Mall in Saint James’ Park by John Maurer. The eagle-eyed amongst you may notice that the food trucks her gentlefolk are enjoying snacks from are the very same trucks you’ll find outside Brighton’s Churchill Square.
Sara Pope also swung by the gallery to pose with Cherry. Continuing her exploration of feminine beauty, the piece depicts the same flirtatious lips that define her oeuvre, emphasising the capacity the mouth has to communicate a whole range of emotions.
Our next Art Yard Sale will take place in June 2024. For now, you can explore the Art Yard Sale ONLINE collection here
