The Sluice publication (consisting of work submitted by the artists and curators that run the galleries and projects that Sluice exists to profile) was also launched last night amid the enthusiastic bidding (the auction was silent and blind which added to the enjoyment) by the eager crowd hungry for great art.
The organizers of Sluice, Karl England & Ben Street have a growing and loyal following that eagerly anticipate The 2013 Sluice Art Fair.
