Join us for a charity auction in support of the new Josef Herman Foundation Graduate’s Award Programme, in memory of former Chair and founder member Carolyn Davies, who sadly passed away last year.

Carolyn was a passionate and dedicated supporter of arts in education and to commemorate her work with the Foundation, Josef Herman Foundation Trustees have instigated an annual Graduate’s Award, initially offered to a selected fine art graduate and awarded at their degree show.

The initial award was made in summer 2019 and proceeds from the auction will enable the Foundation to offer this as an annual award.

The sale will establish a restricted fund to support an annual Graduate’s Award Programme and would also support the Foundation’s continuing work in arts and education, working with local communities and schools in often disadvantaged areas and increasing access to artists and the arts.

We are extremely grateful to Cardiff- based auction house Rogers Jones and Ben Rogers Jones will be taking the auction in the Lecture Room at Glynn Vivian on the afternoon of Sunday 8th December, with viewing taking place in the morning and over lunchtime. The Foundation is also working with The Welfare at Ystradgynlais and has arranged a pre-auction exhibition from 18th November to 6th December 2019 so that potential buyers will have the opportunity to view the works prior to the event.


We would particularly like to thank the staff of the Gallery and the Friends of Glynn Vivian for supporting the project, also Ben Rogers Jones for volunteering his time and expertise, and the Royal Cambrian Academy and The Welsh Group for helping to get the word out to artists and everyone who has contributed to the project.

We would also like to pay tribute to David and Daniel Morris, family of Carolyn Davies, for supporting the Graduate’s Award Programme.
