Sea-Fever

An auction of artworks inspired by the sea

13 Sep Sep 13

Hoxton Arches, E2 8HD

7.00 pm

Inspired by John Masefield's 1902 poem of the same name (see the full poem here), Sea-Fever consisted of 53 sea-inspired artworks sourced directly from 26 contemporary artists. 

After months of scouring the country, we brought together a wide variety of skilled and exciting artists to celebrate how the water around our island continues to stimulate today's creative minds. 

Starting bids began at £70 and, as ever, there was 0% buyer's commission. It was a wonderful evening with 150 people joining to support the artists and pick up a work of art for their home. As a result, the bidding battles led to 70% (37) of the artworks being sold and on their way to new owners. 

Sea-Fever wouldn't have been possible without the generous support of the auction partners: Oury Clark, Jude's Ice Cream, Dorset Tea, Viet Hoa and The Jaguar Shoes Collective. To hear more about their work and how they supported, see the Making A Night Of It and Partners' pages. 

Congratulations and thank you to everyone involved!
