On Monday 8th October, OBs and guests joined Sarah Flynn, who has many connections with Bedford School, at Cheffins Fine Art in Cambridge. It was a wonderful, informal evening where we were treated to a private preview of Thursday’s (11th October) ‘Art and Design Sale’ and had the chance to make a bid for anything that caught our fancy! This particular sale included paintings, furniture, ceramics, glassware and jewellery from the 1880s to the current day.
As we mingled over drinks and canapés, Sarah and her colleague, Patricia, kindly talked us through some of the items on show in great detail, these included some rather fascinating pieces by the British painter, Mary Newcomb. It was also interesting to learn about the workings of an Auction House, especially when compared to an Art Gallery.
We are extremely grateful to everyone at Cheffins for being such great hosts and do hope the sale is a great success!
Please do get in touch if you are interested in hosting an OB event – we are always on the lookout for interesting locations.
