The Artist Canvas Bag Auction is a two-part fundraising event for the NEW FIRM exhibition in London.

Between the 10th and 14th of July, 47 graduates from the Glasgow School of Art will show their work in the NEW FIRM exhibition at Candid Arts Trust in London. To raise funds for this exhibition they are holding an auction of unique artist-designed canvas bags, donated by alumni and tutors from Glasgow School of Art.

The auction includes original, non-reproduced, works by prestigious names such as Alasdair Gray, John Byrne, Peter Capaldi and Toby Paterson, among many others.
