Proud to have been asked to contribute to the below ‘lottery’ sale at Moniker Art Fair. Another event (an auction) will be held at Soho Revue for the same great cause. Details to follow.
‘Art On A Postcard’ will make its debut at Moniker Art Fair this year with a secret auction of 200 original postcard-size artworks, with contributors including collectable artists such as Gilbert & George, Ben Eine and Harland Miller; the collectable pieces will be available to buy with a £50 lottery ticket. The lottery numbers will be matched to the artworks on the Sunday of Moniker.
Launched in 2014, Art on a Postcard is a secret postcard auction raising money for the Hepatitis C Trust. To date it has garnered the support of more than 350 artists including David Shrigley, Damian Hirst, as well as urban art from Xenz, Hush and Pure Evil, all of whom have created tiny, original works exclusively for the Trust.
Charles Gore, CEO of The Hepatitis C Trust, explains ‘we believe we can eliminate hepatitis C over the next 15 years if we are able to continue the vital work we do. Our plan is to close the charity and put ourselves out jobs. Our Art on a Postcard campaign has been extremely beneficial in driving the Trust towards this goal. We are very grateful to the generous and on-going support we receive from artists.’
