This November, Outhouse will be hosting its third annual Arthouse auction and we are reaching out to you to see if you'd be interested in being involved and donating a piece this year.
Your generous donations and/or fundraising efforts will ensure that every LGBT+ person has a safe space to be themselves, make friends, participate in their community, and thrive.
Moreover, the importance of a safe and warm space amid the fear of rising fuel and electricity costs is in our minds, especially for the most vulnerable in our community. Your generosity will mean those who need a safe, warm, and welcoming place this winter will find an open door, cosy seat, and a cuppa among friends.
Participating artists already confirmed this year include Eamon Colman, Eva O’Donovan, Tom Climent, Leah Hewson, Brian Teeling, Leah Beggs, John Fitzsimons, Aidan Kelly, Lola Donoghue, Mairead deBláca, Martin McCann, Francis Fay, Maurice Reidy, James Rooney and many more.
We have secured new and better tech for this year's auction which will include an Apple app and an android app, promising a smooth experience for artists and buyers alike.
Arthouse will continue to offer the opportunity for all contributing artists to avail of 50% of the hammer price for their artworks and will provide other commission options also. Some artists have expressed a wish to fully donate their artwork to Outhouse, for which we are so thankful. As always, our core belief is that we must all rally together and support one another.
This year’s auction, like last years, will be a timed auction online starting early November with final bids taking place on the weekend of November 19th and 20th November, 2022.
Your donations and fundraising efforts will enable Outhouse to support the growing needs of our beautifully diverse community and ensure that every LGBTQIA+ person has a safe space to connect, rejuvenate, celebrate and flourish.
