Spring has Sprung and The Scottish Contemporary Art Auction is as Vibrant as Ever! As a member of the Pictures Department here at McTear's, it gives me great pleasure to report that the trend for buying contemporary paintings at auction is a growing one.

The Scottish Contemporary Art Auction, held every five weeks, has become a monthly must-see for a serious number or both serious (and some not-so-serious!) collectors. Indeed, the number of private buyers attending these auctions is staggering - whilst there is a core group of familiar faces, who love to attend the auction for the relaxed atmosphere and (lest we forget!) fantastic lots that are offered month in and month out, every auction attracts a new, excited group of private individuals who are looking to buy a painting on Sunday and, quite literally, hang it on Monday.

This trend will continue to grow if the lots continue to excite; I am, therefore, delighted to report that the upcoming Scottish Contemporary Art (Sunday, 3rd May, 2pm) is (in a metaphorical sense!) simply brimming over with excitement!

Lot 2162, 'Cat Cleaning' by Dame Elizabeth Blackadder is sure to have the cat lovers crooning with glee - an original watercolour, this painting was received for auction at a valuation day hosted by McTear's that took place in March on the Isle of Arran.

The same day saw the arrival of a fabulous Ethel Walker painting of Lilies in the artist's preferred medium of gouache (Lot 2140) and a stunning vision of an Arran Farm by the late and undeniably great Hamish Macdonald (Lot 2153). Both of these vendors will be sure to 'tune in' online as their lots go 'under the hammer'.

So be sure to 'tune in' yourself or, better still, to join us at The Scottish Contemporary Art Auction this month...with over 400 lots, believe me when I tell you that there is something for every buyer and every budget. See you then!
