Would you help Art UK this month by spreading the word about our exciting auction of artworks?

The Buy art to help Art UK auction is a major fundraising initiative to support our charity's work democratising access to the nation's art collection.

2021, oil on aluminium panel by Ryan Orme. Estimate: £1,000–2,000

We want to attract lots of buyers for the brilliant artworks that are for sale, so I'm appealing to all our supporters to help raise awareness around the auction.

Over 140 wonderful artists have joined forces with Art UK to support this initiative and we have a superb range of paintings, sculptures and prints on offer. Unlike most charity auctions, where the artists give all the proceeds to the charity, our auction is splitting the proceeds with the artists. This was essential to us. It means that in addition to helping Art UK, purchases will support artists up and down the country.

2018, archival giclée print (K3 ink) on 100% cotton 300gsm archival paper by Eddy Kamuanga Ilunga, 37.7 x 39.5 cm unframed, edition of 25 (#13/25). Estimate £600–900

Funds raised by Art UK will enable us to grow access to the national collection of art, expand our valuable schools learning resources at a time when arts education is being increasingly marginalised, and tell more stories about underrepresented artists and those who have not had the recognition they are due.
