The Event


The Josef Herman Art Foundation Cymru is delighted to present its 2nd major charity art auction, taking place on Friday, 2nd June 2023 at Rogers Jones Auctioneers in Cardiff. This exceptional event showcases an impressive selection of works by renowned Welsh artists of international acclaim, including members of the Royal Cambrian Academy and The Welsh Group of artists.

This auction commemorates the Foundation’s 20th anniversary since its establishment in 2003, with proceeds aiding our ongoing efforts in arts and education. By working closely with local communities and schools, particularly in disadvantaged areas across Wales, we strive to increase access to artists and the arts, and promote our initiatives in the field of human rights. Additionally, 50% of the funds raised will contribute to the acquisition and further development of the former Sardis Chapel in Ystradgynlais, envisioned as a future arts and heritage center, as well as the new home for our collection.

We extend our sincere gratitude to Rogers Jones Auctioneers and Ben Rogers Jones, who will be hosting the auction in their showroom, with online bidding options available. In collaboration with The Welfare at Ystradgynlais, the Foundation has organized a pre-auction exhibition from Thursday, 27th April to Saturday, 20th May 2023, offering potential buyers a chance to view the artworks before the main event.

How to bid

Bidding from the auction room

Bidders can arrive at the auction-house to bid during the auction or before the commencement of the auction. On arrival all bidders register at reception to receive a bidding number paddle, new bidders will need to enter their details and ID may be required, returning clients may not have to complete details again (depending on when they last registered). It is good practice to bid by raising the bidding card supplied as this is the best way of getting the attention of the auctioneer. Once the lots that were of interest have been offered, then the bidder can leave the auction room and pay for any lots won by chip and pin. We ask that room bidders always pay by chip and pin on the day and then if possible collect their lots with a member of the auction team immediately after paying. However, if the bidder wishes to return again to collect purchased lots, then please make this known to a member of the team and book an appointment. Rogers Jones can also arrange delivery with local carriers if this is required.

Bidding online

All Rogers Jones ‘live’ auctions have live bidding online. Bidders are required to register their details including their debit card details from the catalogue page. Please note that credit cards are not valid, only debit cards. Please ensure that you are registered with them before you bid and call them if unsure. When you are bidding ‘live’ please bid quickly and do not hover your cursor over the bidding button as this will slow the auction down. Please note that it is better to watch the numbers (the digital prices) rather than the audio or video as there can be a time delay.
