As a patron of young art, you are setting valuable impulses and actively participate in the preservation of cultural diversity in Germany. With your contribution, you are also securing some exclusive privileges for yourself.
The limited off print
It is granted that you will receive the limited print (maximum number of copies: 150) by the winner of the GOPEA advancement award. Among all the participating artists of a year, the patrons determine the winner of the advancement award in an online voting. The winner produces a print as an annual gift, exclusively for GOPEA. The quantity of this annual gift is limited to the exact number of patrons of the respective year, i.e. a maximum of 150. This off print is therefore only available for GOPEA patrons!
The annually published and high quality art book edition is strictly limited to the GOPEA patrons. It is not available on the open market.
Yes, I would like to be gopea-patron.
Galleries are mostly acting as an intermediary between artists and art lovers. However, GOPEA offers you direct contact to the young artists - if you wish so. Within the online gallery, which is only accessible to you as a patron, you will get the contact details for each of the participants of the respective year. In addition, you can see up to three works of each participant, which you can also purchase – independent of GOPEA. Talk to the talent which impresses you the most, arrange to meet in their studio, or meet them at your home. Accompany their future artistic journey and experience the emerging art scene up close and personal! Of course you can also use this contact possibility to acquire more works of the artists – outside of the auction and regardless of GOPEA.
As a patron, you always have access to our archives in Nordhorn - you can examine the works to be auctioned off in the original state before you decide to actively participate in the auction. We are happy to take you on a private tour. Simply call or write an e-mail to make an appointment. We look forward to you!
Every year, you as a Gopea patron select the award winner out of the 55 participating artists. The award winner will receive half of the total sales surpluses.
Bid online for the 55 selected works by the most promising master students. As a GOPEA patron, you will receive access to the annual online auction where the 55 works of each year are up for auction. The auction is open for GOPEA patrons only. The minimum bid for each object is 250 Euros incl. VAT - regardless of the format or the material used. You can bid for a maximum of three objects.
