Online Art Auction Bursary Success

Category: Art, General, Community

Marlborough College and the Young Marlburian Foundation (YMF) partnered with Paddle8, to auction donated paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography and printmaking.

Original works of art, created by many successful OM artists and present Marlborough College students, were sold in December, to provide funds for an invaluable Sixth Form bursary initiated by the Young Marlburian Foundation (YMF).

Three representatives from YMF, Tessa Packard (TU 2001-03), Antonia Packard (SU 2002-04) and Paddle 8 Auction Manager Eugenie York (MM 2003-08), were instrumental in establishing this initiative, with support from members of the Art Department, the Development office and Polly Robinson Gaer, Senior Director of Pace Gallery, London.

Submissions by Charlie Bawden (MM U6), George Mattimoe (BH U6) and James Tong (CO U6) were amongst 32 donated art works which have now been purchased by collectors from around the world. The online auction raised over £9,260. Very well done and thank you to all who were involved.
