Prior Weston School - Auction of Promises
21 March 2013
The Prior Weston School and Childrens’ Centre is an inner city, state-funded school, situated near Shoreditch, London. The institution has a long history of attracting parents, friends and supporters from the nearby artists community, including Gavin Turk, Rachel Whiteread, Cornelia Parker and other internationally recognised creative talent.
The active PTA of the school and childrens’ centre runs a fantastic fundraising year which includes the annual ‘Auction of Promises’. Now in its 16th year, the auction has a simple but effective premise – parents offer a promise which is then auctioned off. Last year’s auction raised over £18,000 for projects, equipment and school trips. A substantial amount of this total was due to bidding on fine art auction lots, donated by artist parents.
John Jones is delighted to have framed several pieces for the 2013 event, including this stunning watercolour by our long-time client Neil Gall. The piece has been presented within a sleek museum quality frame design, constructed from archival materials for long-term conservation with a beautiful aesthetic result.
The auction is set to take place 21st March, 7.30pm at the school.
