To celebrate 10 years of Inside Out Magazine, they are auctioning off a series of artwork from 38 of their favorite artists. With names like Akira Isogawa, Ken Done, David Bromley and Fleur Wood donating pieces and "heart & home" being the inspiration behind the series, we're found it very easy to imagine most of these works in our own home.
Of course money, or lack there of, is always the biggest issue with this kind of thing for us but rest assured should you win any of these items, all of the proceeds are going to the Heartkids Charity. Generous!
There is a nice variety of items for sale in the auction: sculpture, photography, oil paintings, ceramics, drawing, textiles, print and even a 1.5m tall macrame owl! Personally, our favorites are the mixed media work by Beci Orpin [image 9] and the digital print by John Young [image 10]. The auctions are listed on ebay and are staggered over a few weeks this month. To find out more about the works visit the Inside Out Charity Art Auction site here or to get bidding visit their ebay store here.
Also, be sure to get your hands on a copy of the 10th anniversary issue of Inside Out- it's an absolute cracker of a magazine [and comes with a free tea towel designed by Rob Ryan!].
