Art8 Auction

As part of the fundraising efforts to help us make Art8 2014 as fantastic as possible, we asked our artists and local businesses to donate something amazing. The auction took place on Friday 23 and raised a significant sum for the festival. The amounts for each item, and the grand total, will be listed here soon. Thank you to all of the fabulous people that donated items and of course the generous ladies and gentlemen that bid on the night. We really appreciate it.
