As announced before the end of last year, leading auction house Arthouse Contemporary Limited presents its first edition of Affordable Art Auction on 27th February, 2016. The auction targets a new group of art collectors and is focused on art works under N500, 000.
As seen in the e-catalogue available online, the auction provides an opportunity for art lovers and young collectors to buy works from a varied selection of artists. There are a few works by known and high profile artists in the Nigeria art market that are up for fast buyers. Some of these artists are Kolade Oshinowo, Bruce Onobrakpeya, Ben Enwonwu, Rom Isichei, Kainebi Osahenye, Juliet Ezenwa Pearce, Lemi Ghariokwu, Olu Ajayi, and Abiodun Olaku. In all, there are one hundred and thirteen (113) lots selected for the auction, with N100, 000 set as the price of the lowest piece.
To attract potential collectors and remove the perceived barriers of auction sales, Arthouse presents a less formal preview party “Art Night Out” on Thursday 25th February, from 6pm – 11pm. There is also an open viewing on Friday 26th February from 10am – 6pm. The auction holds on Saturday 27th February at 6pm.
Venue : Kia Showroom, 308 Adeola Odeku Street, Victoria Island, Lagos.
To attend the Art Night Out, RSVP to [email protected] by 12noon on Thursday.
