The Wandering Gallery … How the art auction will work
We’re going to auction our custom skateboard art decks to raise funds to save Small Dole Skatepark.
Our phase one fundraising target is £45000 – So please bid generously!
So here’s how the auction is going to work…
For details of the Artwork available, the artists who have generously given their time, and the deck numbers for bidding, please refer to the Custom Skate Deck Exhibition Catologue.
There are two parts to the auction:
On Saturday the 10th of September at 11am we are going to fling open our doors to the general public and all those attending the Small Dole Skatepark Skate Jam (Mackley’s Field, BN5 9XR). From that point on we shall be accepting sealed written bids into the bidding box on the following form which, if you are not present, you can download, complete and email to email@example.com
The exhibition will remain open 9-6pm Monday to Friday (Saturdays by appointment) until the 29th September. We will accept sealed bids until the close of business on Tuesday the 27th of September.
On Tuesday the 27th of September at 8pm Nikki Loy (owner of The Wandering Gallery, and member of the Friends of Small Dole Skatepark committee) and FO SDS, will host a Facebook Live event where we will continue the auction. The previously collected sealed bids will be the starting point for auctioning each board. You can then place your bids in the comments (In the format: Deck No.10 £100 ) and we will watch the comments and whoever bids the highest, and outbids the sealed bids, wins the board*.
Due to the large number of boards available for auction, we anticipate it will need more time. So we expect to continue the Facebook live auctions over three evenings. Please tune in to the first one to get a feel for how it works, show your support and find out when we’ll be auctioning your favourite board.
If you haven’t done so yet please do sign up to the mailing list below so that we can keep you in the loop and update you about the progress of the auction, and our fundraising endeavors.
*Please note that shipping and insurance costs are not included in the bids, and will be calculated and added to your invoice afterward.
If you have any questions drop us and email, and we’ll do our best to answer them.
We do hope you enjoy this show, and that you can bid generously. If you don’t win your board but you would still like to donate please visit our Just Giving page – All donations and bids are very much appreciated and gratefully received.
Let’s do this!
