Under The Bed Sale

Under The Bed Sale 2017
Jan 10 – 4 February
Evening opening: Friday 13 January from 7:30pm – all welcome. Hospitality provided.

For those unaware of the Under The Bed Sale, it is a sale unlike any other.  Prices are not reduced on current work displayed at the gallery.  Cupola asks artists to send in older and early work that they no longer hold dear, that may have been stored 'under their bed' or hidden in an attic, loft, studio, garage or even at their parent's or friend's house.  All artists constantly make new work and this is an opportunity to sell off that older work at bargain prices to make room or even 'head space' for something new. 

Uniquely this sale is completely unselected*, so everything the gallery is sent is put out for sale. This creates a huge diversity in the sale offer and makes for excellent rummaging opportunities.   Cupola wishes to stress this is a 'sale' rather than an exhibition and is likely to make the hanging of the summer exhibition at the Royal Academy look 'sparse' in comparison.  Expect around 2000 items to be available for sale and some incredible bargains!  

Prices will not exceed £350 for any single item and there will be work from as little, if not less than, £1. 

In fact the Sale has proved so popular, other Under The Bed Sales have been popping up around the country.  Well, if an idea is a good one, it is likely to catch on.  But remember,  Cupola's Under The Bed Sale is the original and still the best!

Expect to find work across all media:

Painting, printmaking, photography, ceramics, glass, jewellery, sculpture, textiles and 'other' will be represented!

Doors open 10am Tuesday 10 January.
