This is a charity event with 100% of the proceeds going directly to helping our dogs. By making a purchase donation you will be greatly helping towards MADRA’s mission to make sure every dog is placed in a loving forever home and is not victim to the disposable culture that sees dogs killed merely because they are considered to be a surplus number.

As we’ve had some pretty valuable art donated some of the paintings will have a reserve price, most having a reserve of €50 which is the cost of a microchip and vaccination - essential procedures for all dogs coming into our care. The maximum reserve on any piece will not exceed €100 (or the cost of neutering one adult dog). Due to the anonymous nature of the auction reserves will not be declared until afterwards.

There are a also a number of special paintings not featured in the catalogue that will be on display and up for auction on Saturday including a large framed watercolour by the late Derek Biddulph and a 40x40cm ‘madra’ painting by the brilliant Clare-based artist Phillip Morrison.

This event is free admission and open to everyone so please do come along with friends and family and enjoy a glass of wine or a cocktail while perusing some brilliant art work in the boldly-designed monumental space that is Tribeton. The exhibition is open from 4pm with the auction kicking of at 6pm.
