Natasha Raskin Sharp Launches Exhibit Auctions
Natasha Raskin Sharp is an auctioneer and television presenter - many of you will recognise her from the antiques programmes she presents on, including BBC's Antiques Road Trip, Bargain Hunt and Flog It, as well as The One Show. After years working as an auctioneer at McTear's Auction House in Glasgow she has launched her own online auction house, Exhibit Auctions.
Exhibit Auctions plans to be revolutionary in its field, with Natasha broadcasting live from an artist's studios and no buyer's commission. What you bid is what you pay! Her father, landscape painter Philip Raskin will be the first ‘featured artist’ and the auction (comprising 25 of his original paintings) will be broadcast directly from his studio tomorrow, Wednesday 17 March at 7PM GMT. Philip is globally recognised for his mastery of depicting Scottish seascapes.
Eriskay Lilt, Philip Raskin
Far From The Madding Crowd, Philip Raskin
