Newlyn Art Gallery

Following the success of last year’s Wet Auction we will be holding this year’s event on Saturday 16 September at Newlyn Art Gallery.

In recognition of Newlyn’s history of ‘plein air’ painting, artists will once again be invited to leave their studios, equipped with materials and a packed lunch, and spend a day working outdoors in Newlyn, Penzance and further afield in Penwith. At the end of the day at Newlyn Art Gallery, buyers will have the opportunity to bid on the works created that very day, which may, in some cases, still be wet.

You can follow their movements throughout the day via social media using #wetnewlyn.

By 19.00, the works will be hung in the upper gallery ready to be auctioned by David Lay of David Lay Auctions.  The money raised is eligible to be matched, and therefore doubled, by Catalyst: Evolve in our 10th Anniversary Year so that we can continue to support art and artists in West Cornwall.

Participating artists will be listed as they are confirmed.
