Teddington Lock and Sandys the fishmongers in Twickenham will be two of the many images depicting working life in modern Richmond upon Thames featured in the Environment Trusts annual Art Auction in November.


The auction is one of the highlights of the arts calendar and last year raised almost 12,000 towards the many environmental projects supported by the Environment Trust for Richmond upon Thames, which is based at Eel Pie Island and patroned by Sir David Attenborough.


We are, as ever, indebted to our artists who so generously donate their work to help the work of the Trust, says auctioneer and fine art dealer, John Iddon. Because it is an auction, amazing bargains are to be had on the night there are some wonderful paintings.


The final number of lots is expected to reach around forty, with prices for individual pieces starting from as little as 20 and rising to well over 1,500.



  • Art Auction 2012 takes place at York House in Twickenham on Thursday November 8, from 6.30pm. Entry is 7, including refreshments. Donated work is added to the Environment Trusts online gallery as it arrives. To view go to www.environmenttrust.co.uk/art-auction.html.
