The Spring Auction

An auction of artworks direct from the artists of today

23 Mar Mar 23

Menier Gallery, London SE1 1RU

12.00 pm

The Spring Auction was a group exhibition and auction of 68 artworks handpicked from 55 emerging and under-represented artists.

Starting prices ranged from £100 to £3,800 with all artwork sold framed and ready to install. And, to make buying art more affordable, there was 0% buyer’s commission.

For this auction, we even teamed up with the restaurateur and art patron, Mark Hix, to give a 20% discount at Hixter Bankside, just a three-minute walk from the gallery. You can learn more about Mark Hix's fascinating art collection and his HIX Award for emerging artists in our interview with him here. 

Exhibition: 19-23 March, 11-6 pm
Auction: 23 March, 12 pm
