Local artist's work auctioned for charity

A Midlands artist’s work is being exhibited and auctioned as part of the Artspace project.

The works were painted by late Walsall resident Peter Topham featuring scenes from his many years of travelling around the world.

His family have agreed to hold a Secret auction for the 30 works on display.  Visitors to the exhibition can privately bid for paintings and winning bids will be revealed after the close of the exhibition on 1st  March with all proceeds being donated to charities with the bulk going to Macmillan Nurses.

Dudley MP Ian Austin will be visiting the exhibition at Artspace, 4 Birdcage Walk, Dudley, DY2 7AE at 2pm on Saturday 8 February.

 Tina Oliva, Trustee of the Artspace, said:

“We are so pleased we are able to support the family in their wish to hold a free exhibition and then to conduct a secret auction here in Dudley.

“Artspace is dedicated to providing creative opportunities for all skill levels and that is reflected in this event and in the workshops we run on Thursdays and Fridays.  Peter was an amazing artist and we are proud to have his works hanging on display”

 Ian Austin MP says:

“I was blown away by Peter’s paintings – it just goes to show how much talent we have in the local area and that there is somewhere in Dudley where work like this can be seen.

“I’m pleased to see Artspace going from strength to strength supporting one artists in residence and a 3rd year art student from Worcester university, all with the help of brilliant volunteers.

“If people want to come and enjoy these paintings and place a bid or want to know more about Artspace and their classes, they can email artspacedudley@live.co.uk or come and see them here at 4 Birdcage Walk.”
