OWLS OF BATH - THE AUCTION
The fabulous Owls of Bath sculptures raised nearly £140,000 at October's charity auction at the Apex Hotel in Bath.
200 owl fans and bidders filled the room and the evening was hosted by the Chair of Creative Bath, Greg Ingham, and expert charity auctioneer Addison Gelpey undertook the marathon task of sending the flock on its way.
The eye-catching sculptures have now landed in new nests across the UK and beyond, including France, Budapest in Hungary and the Olympic Mountains in Canada!
Owls that fetched the highest prices included Octavius, who raised £7,500, Spokes by Perry Harris and J K Owling by Jo McCarron.
Horrible Histories book illustrator Martin Brown, who decorated 'Festivowl', drew the raffle to win the large blank owl sculpture, which was won by Bryan Clover from Bath, who runs the charity Evie’s Gift.
Congratulations to all of our talented Owls of Bath artists and event sponsors and a huge feathered thank you to all of the generous auction bidders!
BID FOR THE LAST OWLS OF BATH SCULPTURES!
Our last Owls of Bath sculptures are up for sale to the highest bidder. What amazing Christmas presents they would be!
If you missed out on an owl at the auction, or would like another to keep your owl company (they are very sociable creatures!), please email email@example.com with your best offer by 15th December.
‘Snowy’, AKA ‘Hedwig’, had been living with Chris Packham in the New Forest for four months waiting to be decorated, however Chris was so busy filming this summer that he didn’t have a chance to paint him, so Bath artist Charlotte Moore has now decorated him as a beautiful Snowy Owl. The current highest bid is £1,650 including plinth & delivery to Bath.
BEAKY THE OWLET - Beaky took part of this summer's owl trail and was decorated by Bath College. His current bid is £700 including plinth & delivery. Please email ASAP if you would like to make a bid! See the News page for further details and photos.
OWLS HOOT FAREWELL WEEKEND
The 'Owls Hoot Farewell' auction preview weekend saw all 82 owls and owlets displayed in one giant 'parliament' on the Bath Recreation Ground at the end of September.
Visitors met real owls, made owl biscuits, dissected barn owl pellets with the UK Little Owl Project, made mosaic mini-owls with the Roman Baths, tried for a 'H'Owl in One' with Cumberwell Park and tested their footie skills against Bath City FC's 'Beat the G'owlie'. The event attracted over 7,000 owl fans - a real hoot of a weekend! See the gallery page for more photos.
