During this black-tie event and live auction, works donated by local and international artists were undoubtedly the highlights, with enthusiastic bidders eager to secure works by some of South Africa’s most famous creators.

A work donated by Jimmy Law, titled Rescue Me, with an estimated value of R45 000, unleashed highly competitive bids among attendees, with the Auctioneer, Gift Ngwenya, announcing the closing bid at an incredible R245 000! Another painting, donated by artist Eugenia Chapman Campbell, with an estimated value of R28 000, was also an auction highlight with the successful bidder offering an unchallenged R110 000. A torso sculpture of the late Nelson Mandela by Jean Doyle, a sculpture titled ‘Oblivian of the Waves’ by Anton Smit, a giclee print on archival paper, titled ‘Malay Girl Triptych’ by Lionel Smit and a magnificent bronze statue by Adriaan Diedericks, titled ‘Exhale’ all exceeded their indicated value prices by far.
