Submit Artworks to ‘Artists for Ukraine Auction’ Fundraiser Event

Closing date 20 April 2022

16 Nicholson St. Gallery in Glasgow is calling for artists to donate works for an ‘Artists for Ukraine Auction’ event hosted at the gallery on Saturday, April 23rd to raise funds for the “Czasoprzestrzeń” Cultural Center in Wrocław, Poland who are in dire need of financial aid as they are supporting over 8,000 Ukrainian refugees with housing, sanitary products, medicine, clothing, etc. and hundreds of new refugees arrive daily.

We are seeking a wide range of works- prints, paintings, photography, zines, sculpture, jewellery- Maybe this is a chance to clear some much-needed space in your studio, or to contribute a new work responding to the current war and refugee crisis. We hope you will share in this evening of drinks, art, and Glaswegian solidarity with the Ukraine.

We ask that artists are responsible for delivering the work to the gallery (16 Nicholson St.) by April 20th, where we will take high-quality studio images of the works to include in a digital auction catalogue. We also ask artists to ensure they are able to pick up any unsold artworks by Thursday April 28th.

The gallery will be taking no commission on auction sales and we are asking for donated artworks but understand not every artist is able to do so, so would like to offer an artist commission percentage on a sliding scale of up to 50% of final sale amount. If you decide to take commission, please indicate the percentage in your submission.

To contribute, please e-mail Kelly at ‘[email protected]’ with the subject line ‘Artists for Ukraine Art Submission’ and include:

  •  Short Bio (1 paragraph or less) + links to website/ social media 
  •  Number of artworks & reserve/minimum price for each (if there is one)
