This is your chance to pick up a unique piece of work from the Barrington Farm Art Barn and archives. Barrington Farm supports over 40 talented self-taught artists and is one of the few studios of its kind in the UK.
The auction will feature more than 30 lots of drawings, paintings and sculpture, with estimates from £10 – £1000. Artists will include Ian Partridge (Whitworth Gallery, Manchester / Eastern Open), Michael Smith (Musgrave Kinley Outsider Archive / Outside In), Roy Collinson (Museum of Everything #4), Leofric Baron (New York Outsider Art Fair) and Barbara Symmons (Prague Biennale / Salthouse / Assembly House Art Show).
There will be an opportunity to view the artworks during an exhibition week leading up to the auction (21 – 24 April).
60% of the sale price will go to the artists, with a percentage also going to The Barrington Farm Trust, which aims to improve the lives of adults with learning difficulties in North Norfolk through social, educational and recreational activities.
