Raffle 2011

After the Auction

The Art Auction was a great success and a fabulous evening. The offices of One Solution in Blytheswood Square were transformed by light, flames and of course wonderful art on the walls. There was a jazz band, free champagne, cocktails and canape in the green room which was in fact purple and red. The serious […]

The Auction on Friday 27th November

After a really busy few weeks I have at last found time to post an update on the auction in Glasgow. The donated art work was all collected in the weeks leading up to the 6th of November and then a small team gathered at One Solution in Glasgow and hung the show. We had Norrie Kirkham […]
