Welcome to the updated website for the Dar Tal-Providenza Fine Arts Auction. This is the 7th year that this auction is being held to raise funds for Dar Tal-Providenza. All art pieces being auctioned have been generously donated by local and international artists.
This year we are departing from the usual way we did the auction, as for the first time, the auction will be held as a LIVE AUCTION in the Foyer of the House of Representatives in Valletta. The Speaker of the House, Hon. Dr Anglu Farrugia MP, has not only consented to help Dar Tal-Providenza by giving us the opportunity once more to make the exhibition of the art pieces for the auction in the Foyer, but also for the first time, for the auction will be held in live in the Foyer of the House of Representatives. The auction will be conducted with the help of Obelisk Auctions, with Mr Pierre Grech Pillow, as the auctioneer.
As the auction will be a live event, there will be no online bidding. All bids have to be either submitted via the Absentee Bidding Form or by registering by phone (so as to be called during the auction) or by being present at the auction and registering before the auction starts on the 20th December at 19:00, at the Foyer of the House of Representatives in Valletta.
On the 20th December the official opening of the auction will commence at 17:30 with speeches by the Speaker, followed by Fr Martin Micallef. Immediately after there will be small reception for the attendees and the artists prior to the auction commencing. We invite all interested bidders to attend for this event prior to the commencement of the auction.
