The last art auction of the year at Hayward’s Auction House will be held from 2pm this Sunday, December 8.
Owners Bridgette and John More are very pleased with the calibre of the art on show, which features a wide range of very well-regarded local and national artists.
This Sunday’s auction includes important works from Douglas Badcock, Peter Beadle, Neil Driver, Lindsay Crooks, Ben Webb, Clark Esplin, John Toomer, Marilynn Webb, Ewan McDougall, and Graham Brinsley.
Where galleries tend not to, at Hayward’s Art Auctions traditional style artists such as J Elder Moultray are hung right next to more contemporary artist, like Dunedin’s Manu Berry. This eclecticism is what makes the auctions so interesting, bringing a wide range of people with varied interests into the auction rooms.
Hayward’s Art Auctions are always very well attended, and they have become a highlight on the local art calendar.
For those who can’t make it on the day, absentee bids can be made through Hayward’s website or, if appropriate, phone bids can be arranged during the auction. Hayward’s will arrange packing and sending of smaller art works throughout New Zealand for buyers who live out of town.
John and Bridgette have worked hard to grow and develop their art auctions since taking over Hayward’s Auction House in 2015. They see this Sunday’s auction as the culmination of these efforts.
Giving individual pieces enough space to stand out, and the professional photography of each piece, is the key to the growth of the auctions, they believe. And John and Bridgette work with both vendors and buyers on the sales process and expectations around prices.
Now being one of the preferred ways to sell secondary art in the South Island is very rewarding, Bridgette says. They are seeing more and more referrals from galleries to sell art on behalf of clients.
Also pleasing is the increasing number of collections they are being asked to consign to auction. Bridgette and John will travel throughout the South Island to appraise work.
They believe that the future of the art auctions is very positive, and as a result they are intending to run extra auctions in 2020.
If you are interested in selling art, please contact Hayward’s Auction House and they can talk you through the process.
