RMIT New Collectable Auction tonight

8 12 2011

I am really very impressed with the quality of the work up for auction tonight at the RMIT New Collectables 2011 Auction.

Auction media: “Experience the thrill of a live art auction and buy exceptional, affordable artworks by RMIT’s most promising artists at New Collectables.

Works on offer showcase the imagination and skill of RMIT’s art and design students, and include painting, drawing, jewellery, ceramics, sculpture and photography.

As no commission is taken on sales, and there are no expenses or fees for students to enter work, auction and backroom purchases exclusively benefit the participating artists. All auction reserve prices are less than $250.

Bidding starts 6:30pm sharp

I was especially impressed with the following:

  • Samira Ghasempour ‘Just Leave it Behind‘ print
  • James Jardine ‘Centrepiece‘ photograph
  • Ohm Pattanachoti ‘Self Portrait No. 2‘ drawing
  • Lizzy Sampson ‘The Colour of Money (20)‘ photograph [blog, site]; my favourite in the rooms
  • Tanya Ungeri ‘Rebranded‘ photograph

Along with the auction is a ‘back room sales’ of other artworks … worth getting along to!
