Everyone at Outhouse is absolutely blown away by the generosity of everyone who helped make our inaugural art auction a success.
The goodwill shown to us has been extraordinary. From the amazing artwork donated from the artists, to the help of friends and community promoting it online and via word of mouth, to the generosity of the buyers - we are extremely humbled and thankful.
Because of you, we have raised over €53,000, with over €16,000 of that going back to the artistic community.
Chairman George Robotham says
"All of us here at Outhouse are overwhelmed by the incredible response to our first annual art auction.
The generosity of each of the 130 artists who donated all or a part of the auction sale price to Outhouse, particularly in this time of Covid, is intensely appreciated.
Overall, the high quality of the work - each unique talent - was registered by the nearly 900 folks who keyed into the auction, and just about every piece of work was purchased within or above estimate.
Profound thanks to all those who bid and supported our effort to fundraise through this auction. These funds enable Outhouse to stay operating until this pandemic subsides and the cafe and meeting rooms can buzz again,
In total the auction final bids reached €53K: which will raise over €35K for Outhouse, money that we badly need to stay operational.
Very special thanks to those central to the organising, communicating and executing of our first auction": Karen, Myriam, and all the staff of Outhouse.
