Grab a bargain as the ‘Art Under The Bed’ sale returns to the Basement at Bunyan

Art Under The Bed

Art lovers can find a bargain at the Basement at Bunyan this week, as the popular ‘Art Under The Bed’ sale returns.

18 artists from across Bedfordshire are taking part in the sale that opens at the gallery space tomorrow (Tuesday) until Saturday.

This is the fourth year that the event has taken place at Basement at Bunyan, organised by artist-in-residence, Anne-Marie Abbate.

“Artists are encouraged to sort through their older artwork which has been stored under their beds, in cupboards and sell the pieces at half their original price,” said Anne-Marie.

“This event is always very well received but you have to arrive early to snap up the bargains.”

Prices range from 25p to £100.

In addition, Anne-Marie will be teaching felt-making at drop-in sessions on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The art sale is open Tuesday 18 – Saturday 22 October from 10am – 4pm at the Basement at Bunyan.

The entrance is through the John Bunyan Museum on Mill Street, MK40 3EU, tel: 01234 270303. More details at their website here.
