The Argent Related Art Auction closed its sales on Friday 20 November, raising £1,347 to help kit out a new art room at Ferry Lane School in Tottenham. The 20 pieces of auctioned artwork were created by the Argent Related team and architects who have worked on the Tottenham Hale development in North London or other Argent Related projects, including Pollard Thomas Edwards Architects, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris and David Morley Architects.
The artworks varied in style, from traditional landscapes to abstract works, with many of the Argent Related team opting to portray different interpretations of London landmark King’s Cross, a 67-acre site redeveloped by Argent, as well as Argent Related’s Tottenham Hale site.
Lisa Rawashdeh, Acting Headteacher at Ferry Lane Primary School said, “Argent Related’s art auction was fantastic and, especially in lockdown, it was a great way to celebrate Tottenham Hale’s community spirit and creativity. Thank you to everyone who bid on the artwork and to the artists. The money raised will go a long way in helping to provide our pupils with a much-needed new art room.”
Alexandra Woolmore, Head of Planning at Argent Related commented, “Tottenham Hale is a truly unique area with a strong creative community. This local context and Ferry Lane Primary School’s vision for their new art space provided the inspiration for the art auction. It has been a privilege to support Ferry Lane Primary School and we can’t wait to see all the wonderful art that the pupils create! We look forward to working closely with other groups and organisations at the heart of the community as the development progresses.
