Art on show in Brighton & Hove and Sussex

Dixon’s Gavel Bash ** 3-29 Sep 2016 ** Naked Eye Gallery

The Naked Eye Gallery is pleased to announce a contemporary art auction to raise funds for a much loved and celebrated Brighton-based artist, the ‘daddy’ of pop art, Simon Dixon on Thursday 29th September.

A host of artists originating locally but of national and international renown have come together to raise funds for Simon’s therapy and care in his battle against cancer. Works from Antony Micallef, Simon Dixon, Sarah Shaw, Ian Hodgson, Chris Kettle, Charlie Day, Tori Day, Paul Ostrer, Sam Hewitt, Jim Sanders and Graham Carter will go under the hammer. The auction will be a rare opportunity to buy works of art from a gallery with the price tags decided by the bidders and buyers.

On the evening of the sale, the ‘Tree of Temptation’ will offer luxuriant treats donated by local artisans and businesses to buy and take home, but with a twist. Find out more on the night!

Artwork offered for the sale can be previewed from 3rd September at the Naked Eye Gallery, 5 Farm Mews, Farm Road, Hove, BN3 1GH, where the auction itself will be conducted by Nick Toovey of Toovey’s Auctioneers on Thursday 29th September. Doors open at 7pm with the auction starting at 8pm. If you can’t make the auction but wish to try and buy, there are other ways to bid. Please ask for more details at the gallery.
