Mystery Masterpiece Auction - acclaimed artist or talented amateur?

Broadway Arts Festival is giving the public the chance to snap up original artwork by internationally renowned and emerging artists for as little as £25!

The festival is showcasing British painters, illustrators, printmakers and photographers, while helping to raise funds for the Broadway Arts Festival in 2023, school outreach programmes and local student arts bursaries.

Maybe you'll spot a future rising star and get hold of a great investment?

Which will see the greatest interest and get the highest bids? Professional or amateur?

Artists! Is this your opportunity to be discovered!

The online auction is taking place on the Broadway Arts Festival website - over 70 small artworks have been donated anonymously by talented professional and amateur artists.

The opening bid for all these pieces is just £25 when the bidding opens on February 5th. This is an exciting opportunity to purchase a piece of original art, a mini 'mystery masterpiece' with all works being approximately A4 in size, or smaller.

Once bidding closes at 8pm on February 26th, all will be revealed when the artists' names are published alongside their work on the website.

Those bidders who have won individual auction items will receive an email from Broadway Arts Festival letting them know and asking them to arrange prompt payment (within 1 week) to help organisers distribute items efficiently. Your masterpiece can be posted for a flat fee of £5 within the UK or you can opt to collect it from Broadway.

Broadway Arts Festival director Alison Braithwaite said: "We ran the auction two years ago and it was a huge success."
