Every artist is donating 100% of the auction sales proceeds to Castlefield Gallery.

Castlefield Gallery is also pleased to announce that the auctioneer for the evening will be highly respected artist and teacher Pavel Buchler of Manchester Metropolitan University.

The Gallery is now calling on art lovers and collectors to support it in raising funds that will ensure Castlefield Gallery’s continual success in providing exhibiting and professional development opportunities for artists.

Artworks will be available to view online from 4 May and by appointment from 11 May.
