Designs revealed for Art on a Postcard 2017
Now in its fourth year, Art on a Postcard is an annual, secret auction of anonymous postcard-sized artworks organised in aid of The Hepatitis C Trust.
Following 2016’s auction, which raised over £75,000, all proceeds from this year’s event will go towards the charity’s campaign to eliminate the Hepatitis C virus as a major public health concern by 2030.
More than 400 postcards are set to go up for auction, featuring artworks by established artists such as Jean Jullien and Maggi Hambling, alongside emerging names. Other creatives that have contributed include Peter Blake and Kristjana S Williams.
All the anonymous postcards will go on display to the public at art gallery Unit London on 14 November, before going up for auction on 16 November. Conducted by auction house Ewbank’s, people will be able to be bid for the postcards both online and in person.
The artworks will remain anonymous until the auction has ended, meaning that both established and budding art collectors will have the chance to get their hands on original works from some of the art world’s biggest names.
