The Edge Mountain Retreat and Cape Parrot Project (CPP) have partnered to present Art Auctions in Hogsback. Proceeds of the auctions will be donated to the CPP to fund their efforts to rehabilitate the indigenous forests so needed for the survival of this endangered parrot. We are asking for artists and crafters to put their works up for theseauctions. Contributors have the option of setting a reserve price (an amount that will be returned to them should the piece sell) or doing an outright donation of their work. Any amount fetched above the reserve will be donated to the CPP on behalf of the artist/crafter.
Firstly, we have planned the “Hogsback Art & Craft Auction” in aid of the Cape Parrot Project during Xmas in July 2016.
We are limiting the number of works to 20 for this auction to ensure we can fit it into an hour. Items will be displayed at the Vula Vista conference Centre at The Edge from Friday afternoon (29 July 2016) and the auction will take place on Sunday 31 July 2016 (11:00) at the Vula Vista conference Centre at The Edge. If you have an item you wish to donate or put up for auction please contact Abigail de Swardt (firstname.lastname@example.org or 072 857 3365) before 18 July 2016 to make your pledge or request additional information. Once your pledge has been made more information about the event will be forwarded to you. If more than 20 items are offered we will undergo an elimination process and notify contributors of the final items by 10 July 2016.
The second Auction will be part of an exclusive Fine Art, Food and Wine Weekend in Hogsback. (Dates to be confirmed.)
