Postcard exhibition draws bids
By EMMA CORNFORD
EAGLE-EYED bidders kept watch over their favourite artworks at the Grafton Regional Gallery yesterday as bids were finalised for the silent postcard auction.
With prices for the postcard-sized works donated by local artists starting at just $20, it was a chance for Clarence Valley enthusiasts to secure their own little, and affordable, piece of art.
One bidder, Heather Brown, said she had participated in the auction simply because she 'loves art'.
"There are quite a few spectacular works and hopefully the prices will remain reasonable," she said, before checking to see if any further bids had been made for her favourite artwork.
Gallery director Jude McBean said she expected more than $4500 to be raised.
