Where does the money go? 

All money raised from the auction contributes to ArtHouse Jersey’s Seed-Funding Grants, which financially support local Jersey artists of all disciplines to make innovative, professional work. Past recipients include Michael Pearce (writer-director of the recent film, Beast), Christian Foley, Hannah Patterson, Jonny Labey, Frankie Davies and Lloyd Yates.

However, as ArtHouse Jersey recognises the vast amount of talent in the Island, due to limited funding, there is only a select few that can be supported every year (giving up to £2,000 per grant). Through the auction and fundraising, we aim to fund even more local artists through Seed-Funding.

What can I bid on? 

The auction includes five artworks, reflecting the diverse range visual art being created on the Island. Artists donating works to the auction are Ian Rolls, Abi Overland, Nick Romeril, Pippa Barrow and June Gould. See below for images and details of each, or visit the auction at Piquet House to see them in person! 

IAN ROLLS

Ian is a full time artist who is well known for his uniquely wayward & quirky creations. For Skipton Open Studios, he will be showing recent work in a new gallery space in St Helier, which is part of a complex of historic buildings recently brought back to life by the National Trust. Ian's artwork, The Hermatige, painting was part of the exhibition “drift” held at the White House, St Ouen’s Bay in 2016 where all the paintings were on driftwood panels found on beaches around the island. He made the drawing onto the panel at Elizabeth Castle using a particular technique he has developed where he looks at the subject but not the drawing whilst making it.

ABI OVERLAND

Abi specialises in drawing detailed images of natural and organic matter creating surreal and other worldly landscapes to get lost in. Abi also founded her own dinnerware brand in 2015, Abi Overland Jersey. Abi has donated a print, Botanicals, which is an intricately detailed study on a botanical wall display celebrating natural shapes and textures.

PIPPA BARROW

Pippa is a sculptor working in a variety of materials, including bronze, resin and clay. She has undertaken commissions for both private and public artwork, including the light installation at 63 Bath Street in St Helier, and the ‘Branded Ram’ sculpture outside De Gruchy’s New Street entrance. Her ringed figure is one of a series of beasts, made of black stoneware, and patterned with a volcanic grey glaze using the wax stop-out technique. Each is unique; they are essentially clay sketches examining how body posture is used as communication.

JUNE GOULD

June is a local potter, painter and sculptor. She works from her studio in St Ouens bay and is influenced by the continual drama of the natural world around her. Her reactions to this are encapsulated in her latest paintings and sculpture, which can also be seen at her latest exhibition at the Harbour Gallery. June's painting, North Coast Cave, was painted in relation to her kayaking trips through these caves.
