Welcome to Homegrown Art & Music for Huntington's Online Auction of Professional Artworks in aid of Huntington's Disease Awareness.
disease is an incurable genetic condition which causes physical and mental
deterioration. The condition, progresses over a number of years and, as the
disease progresses, the person with HD loses their ability to walk, talk, eat,
think clearly & control their movement. Often described as being Alzheimer’s,
Parkinson’s and Motor-Neuron Disease all rolled into one, Huntington's
Disease is still classed as 'rare' (nearly 8000 people in the UK have it) and,
as such, public and professional 'awareness' of the disease is limited.
The aim of Homegrown Art & Music for Huntington's' and this auction, therefore, is to raise funds for Awareness training for a wide range of health and social care professionals both in the Fylde Coast area and beyond.
Barring one item – the bronze head (which is extremely heavy), standard UK postage will be free to item winners. However, if the individual winning bidder’s requirements (i.e. insurance, geographical location) transcend standard rate postage, this will need to be negotiated at time of purchase.
A catalogue of all the kindly donated items here is available at www.Homegrownart.org (this also includes artists statements and biographical details).
Please note that whilst some of the items are listed as ‘framed’ – the framing quality differs from item to item and therefore should not be considered as part of the ‘value’ of the artwork. Also, it is worth looking carefully at the approximate size of each piece as the images displayed might appear visually deceptive
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
