Peter Saville for Castlefield Gallery 
Peter Saville has joined many internationally-acclaimed artists in making a donation to the Castlefield Gallery's Fundraising Auction which takes place on 30 May 2012. The money raised will help to secure the organisation's future as a leader in artist development in the North West of England.

The Gallery has already received a large number of spectacular drawings, sculptures, photographs and paintings from artists such as Mark Leckey (Turner Prize 2008 winner), Haroon Mirza (Silver Lion, Venice Biennale 2011), David Shrigley and Liam Spencer. Every artist is donating 100% of the auction sales proceeds to the Gallery.

Peter Saville's contribution is a signed artist's proof lithograph on paper of the artwork produced for the reissue of Unknown Pleasures by Joy Division.

The auctioneer will be highly respected artist and teacher Professor Pavel B├╝chler of Manchester Metropolitan University, assisted by Stephen Snoddy, Director, The New Art Gallery Walsall. Plus lending his support to the auction will be special guest, author, DJ and journalist, Dave Haslam.
