The Art Book Edition

The Art Book Edition

Whether you are successful in the auction or not - every GOPEA patron receives exclusive publications of lasting value, for example the limited print of the advancement award winner. The centerpiece of each year is the upmarket art book edition, which is published with a volume of 150 copies. The art book portrays each artist with a full-page colour image of the art work purchased by GOPEA, complemented by the most important and professionally edited facts regarding the artist and their work. The art book is meant to document your commitment as a patron.

The upmarket and aesthetically pleasing book is designed and published by Kettler (external link), one of the most distinctive contemporary publishing houses for art books. Kettler also plans to publish a paperback edition of the GOPEA annual art edition at a later date which will be distributed via bookstores and museum shops to gain wider popularity for the GOPEA project. This paperback contains no patronage privileges. These are only available to you as a patron!

In addition to the art book, patrons will receive the exclusive and personalised GOPEA auction card. It contains the code for access to the GOPEA online gallery, which will enable you to bid on your favourite work of art from the annual collection.

When will I receive the art book from the GOPEA annual edition?
You will receive the art book from the GOPEA annual edition after the set-up of the art collection supported by you, which is due at the end of a calendar year.
