AACL™-JHB is excited to share with you our first ever online Animal Lovers@ART Charity and Lifestyle auction. This exciting and creative online fundraiser will be a celebration of Art and Animals.
Throughout the past 18 months, support to AACL™-JHB has drastically reduced as a result of fundraising events being cancelled and sadly, the financial constraints of our donors and supporters.
But we are not alone, South African artists have also been hit with hard times. In a bid to support each other, AACL™-JHB has collaborated with over 40 established and upcoming artists through our host Hester Carstens from Fine Art, to hold our inaugural Online Auction.
If artwork is not your thing, we have great lifestyle items available, including weekends away and cases of Poncrácz, items have been sponsored by; Ivory Manor Boutique Hotel Pretoria, DOTSURE.co.za, Poncrácz- Methode Cap Classique, Swagga Breweries, Agterplaas B&B Melville, Cheese Gourmet Linden, Ivory Tree Game Lodge Pilanesberg and Freddy and Friends.
The team from Old Johannesburg Warehouse Auctioneers and AWEH Auctioneers who specialize in antiques, art and fine collectables will jointly auction off these unique pieces on the night.
With over 150 Lots available, dozens of top South African and International Art Works are available the highest bidder at a fraction of gallery prices, including works from such artists as Glenn Josselsohn, Andre & Stef de Beer, Lucas Marais, Eric Sher, Garth Palmer, Giorgio Trobec, Isabel le Roux, Munro, Petro Neal, Janine Jansen van Vuuren and Shontell Moroder, to name a few.
The Animal Lovers@ART auction will open for pre-auction bidding on Tuesday 5th October 2021 with the actual online auction starting at 17:00 on 15th October 2021. Hester Carstens will host a pre-auction viewing of all the art pieces on Friday 15th October 2021 from 10:00 – 17:00 at 45 Bristow Street, Florida Park, Gauteng.
All funds raised through the donated piece of art and lifestyle items will assist us to continue in the care and protection of the animals in our community.
