Painting for Fun Auction


Quayside view

Two large montage paintings have been produced during the Painting for Fun sessions held at the Shieldfield Art Works by 32 separate artists. Kim, who runs P4F used two of her photographs and separated each into 16 parts so that the P4F members could create a communal painting. They are 1 metre by 1.2 metres each. We are auctioning off each montage painting in order to raise funds which will help to buy painting supplies and support the work of Painting for Fun. Bids start from £150 per painting. If you would like to place a bid, please either ring the SAW office on 0191 447 6811, email SAW at, or visit SAW to fill out a bidding card in the gallery. Please place a separate bid for each of the two montage paintings – you can bid for one or for both. Bidding concludes on 8th August at 4pm and the highest bidders will be announced on 9th August. The highest bid to date will be updated right here every Wednesday!

Bidding opens on 12 July at 6pm when the mosaic paintings will be revealed!

We would love for you to come and see the mosaic paintings in the flesh, as well as the full P4F 8th Summer Exhibition. Happy bidding!
