Those of you who have been following this blog for a while may remember a post in 2019 about Art on a Postcard.
Art on a Postcard was founded, in 2014, by Gemma Peppé as a unique way to raise money for for the Hepatitis C Trust. It works like this. Invited artists are sent postcard-sized pieces of paper to decorate in any way they wish. These miniature artworks are then put up for auction. All works start at £50.
There is a number of auctions each year featuring work by icons of the art world – for this auction they’ve got contributions from Grayson Perry, Gavin Turk and Royal Academicians, including Chris Orr, Stephen Chambers, Kenneth Draper, Norman Ackroyd, Ian Ritchie and Mick Rooney; rising stars, including Caroline Wong; Miyeon Yi, Orlando Marosini, Rose Electra Harris and Isaac Aldridge ……and then there’s me. I’ve been lucky enough to be invited to contribute every year since 2016 and I have four postcard-sized ink drawings in this year’s auction.
Last week I was up in London at the Winter Auction private view held at the Bomb Factory Art Foundation gallery in Covent Garden.
The auction is run by Dreweatts. Bidding closes at 2pm GMT on 15th November 2022. To bid, just visit http://www.dreweatts.com to create an online bidding account and register to bid.
You can view the exhibition on the site and follow the bidding without registering if you want. Those who have won lots will be contacted by the auctioneers with payment details, shortly after after bidding closes.
So, if you want the chance to buy a bargain from a famous (or soon to be famous) artist, while simultameously supporting a very good cause, pop over and have a look now. Normal sized pictures by me are, of course, always available in my gallery.
