Oh What a Night! Art Auction Comes Up Trumps


“Oh what a night we had, what a night!” – The gallery was full; seats were at a premium, waiters circulated with trays of refreshments, buyers surveyed the art on display and awaiting auction.

In the event the bidding was brisk for the majority of the painting, prints and watercolors, with almost every one achieving or exceeding their best estimates.

Everyone who took part benefitted from the evening: the artists who donated their work were pleased with the profile they received; the owners, who had contributed to the sales portfolio and donated their buyer premium, were thrilled at the sales; and, the gallery owners were ecstatic that their generosity  in donating a featured painting, and hosting the event, has paid dividends.

In all over 3,000 was donated to help fund palliative care for infants and children who need it most.

Our thanks go to Bogdan Ion and Ovidiu Dragos , the sponsors of the event, Mrs Maria Popa and the team for Chez Marie, and all the other donors who contributed to the success of Romania’s  first modern day art auction for children in palliative care .

If you wish to help the charity’s “Art with Heart” initiative, or have other fundraising ideas that might help children in the direst need, please contact Alisdair Barron on 0141 559 5695 or email
