On Friday, art lovers from all around braved the elements to make it down to Enter Gallery for an exclusive private view of our 2022 Virtual Art Yard Sale. And what an evening it was!
For those new to Enter Gallery, each year we host two Art Yard Sales – one during the heat of summer in Jubilee Square, and a more weather-appropriate Virtual version in Autumn. Both sales are a chance to snap up exclusive artworks from leading contemporary artists at special Art Yard Sale prices.
This year’s Virtual Art Yard Sale featured works from over 30 Enter Gallery artists, many of which were created especially for the sale. Here’s a little rundown of the what happened on the night…
Art Lovers Unite
One thing that our patrons love about the Art Yard Sale is the chance to rub shoulders with the artists whose work adorns their walls. On the night, we were joined by a whole host of our artists, many of whom were also excited to meet each other.
Richard Berner was at the event, chatting to folk about his piece, Tears of a Clown. Many of the pieces included in the show were timed releases, which means the window for snapping them up is now closed. However, Richard’s piece is one of the few you can still get your hands via a print, or his original drawing.
Gavin Mitchell braved the rain to come down from London. His piece, Paint by Numbers is the first in a series of artworks that see a change in direction from his hugely-popular geisha-inspired works. If you like Paint by Numbers, chances are you’ll like, Lots of Things too.
Chrisie Nimenko made the trek from the west of England to join us on the night. Her beautifully-framed print was hanging pride of place, with many attendees enamoured with the layers of symbolism contained within the piece, as well as the 22ct gold hand-finish.
Eddy Bennett’s Who Dares Wins was one of the hits of the sale, with its bold colours, gorgeous printing, and inspiring message.
