Bee Art Auction
This is your chance to own unique Bee Art!
Artists and celebrities from across the media have created wonderful bee art and bee doodles on postcards, with their signature on the back of the card – though sometimes with a clue on the front
Can you guess who is the artist of each picture?
Contributing artists and ‘doodlers’ already include Judi Dench, Antony Gormley, Mona Hatoum, Kate Humble, Alexander Armstrong, Andrew Marr, Ian McKellen, Alison Steadman, Rachel Whiteread – with more contributions arriving every day.
This on-line auction will open for bids at dawn on World Bee Day – Monday May 20.
The cards will be displayed at the Bee Garden Party on Wednesday 12 June, with the auction closing at 7.30 pm, when those with winning bids will discover the artist behind their bee picture!
The Bee Art Auction is curated for us by Artist and Bee Activist, Alex Hirtzel.
These are the wonderful people who have contributed their Bee Art in support of Bees for Development.
