The Gallery Trail & Secret Artist Auction was a tremendous success in 2019 and will be repeated in 2020. Our thanks go to the many artists and craftspeople who exhibited their incredible work and made the event such a wonderful success.
2019 SECRET ARTIST - SILENT AUCTION
50 ORIGINAL ARTWORKS
The Victoria Institute, venue #1 on the Gallery Trail, hosts our Secret Artist Exhibition and Auction this year! Invited artists have created diverse and contemporary artworks on 30cm x 30cm boards, specifically for this event. Each artist has signed their original piece on the back, so that only your winning bid will reveal their identity!
Be surprised: there are some notable names among them and some valuable work. You may be lucky enough to acquire a very collectable piece!
An alphabetical list of all participating artists is available below and in the exhibition space itself. The auction opens on 1st August and closes at midnight on 31st August. Click on your image to bid and good luck!

Proceeds from the auction will be divided between the artist and Arundel Gallery Trail to help fund future initiatives. Please bid generously and good luck!
★ We will contact the bidder immediately should we receive a higher bid for the piece, in order to give the option to make a further bid.
