Community Engagement

+This November we're raising funds for the Flavel Arts Centre in Dartmouth - click here to read how to bid for a postcard-sized original artwork!

2020 has been a particularly challenging year for arts venues so this November we’re raising money for the Flavel Arts Centre in Dartmouth. The Flavel is a vital part of our local community and is valued by residents and visitors alike. In the tradition of the ‘Postcard draws’ that Paul and Brenda ran from 2003-2013 when they owned Dart Gallery, many of our gallery artists and other talented (and famous!) local artists have kindly donated postcard-sized original artworks which you can now bid for. All proceeds will go to support the Flavel at this difficult time. The reserve bid for each painting is just £35 so you could well bag a bargain! Bidding will remain open throughout the month and the winning bids will be confirmed after 30th November. It’s a great opportunity to acquire artwork for yourself or as a present (remember, Christmas is coming). There are over 70 wonderful pieces to choose from below.

How To Bid

To take part use the ‘enquiry’ button next to each artwork to submit your bid (include your name, phone number and email). We’ll only use your details to contact you in reference to the auction (we will show your initials next to your bid on each painting). As bids arrive we’ll be adding them to the listing of each painting so if you bid keep checking to make sure you’re still the highest bidder. Bidding closes at midnight on 30th November. We’ll contact successful bidders soon after with a link to make payment direct to the Flavel. Once you’ve paid you can then collect your postcard from the gallery or we can arrange delivery for a small charge. The gallery will also be offering a discount on framing for all successful bids. Good Luck!
