ART ON A POSTCARD SECRET AUCTION 2018 BIDDING OPENS ON PADDLE8
Bidding opens on 30 October for the fifth Art on a Postcard secret auction. This is a unique opportunity to take home a specially created artwork by some of the world’s most coveted artists, you could be bidding on a rare piece by Marina Abramović or an artwork by Amy May George, a talented Central Saint Martin’s student with a sell-out show under her belt. A truly democratic platform, with the reserve price for all artworks starting at £50, this is an opportunity to own a valuable and collectable work of art on a 10x15 cms scale.
This year's line-up includes Marina Abramović, who makes her Art on a Postcard debut, plus Humphrey Ocean RA, Maggi Hambling CBE, Golucho, Volker Hueller, Rob and Nick Carter, Martin Yeoman, Minas Halaj, Vanessa Jackson RA, Rebecca Salter RA and Maria Kreyn. Bidding will open tomorrow on the Paddle8 website and the auction includes some of the most successful and interesting contemporary artists from both the urban art and fine art world. It features artists from prestigious galleries including Blum & Poe, Timothy Taylor, Victoria Miro, Blain | Southern, Lazinc and White Cube. Art on a Postcard presents a unique chance to own a mini-masterpiece by an artist who may not normally be accessible to most.
Art on a Postcard is working in partnership with the auction host Paddle8 and communal working hub WeWork, the space and services provider that fosters collaboration, who will host the week-long Art on a Postcard exhibition in their newest location in Devonshire Square EC2.
All of the work is anonymous until after the sale which will be held on the Paddle8 auction site. Putting the artist to the image has always been half the fun of Art on a Postcard and fans and budding collectors can visit the Paddle8 website from 30 October to start bidding on these unique works of art.
The Hepatitis C Trust is the national UK charity for hepatitis C. It was founded and is now led and run by people with personal experience of hepatitis C and almost all of the AOAP Board, staff and volunteers either have hepatitis C or have had it and cleared it after treatment. Historically, hepatitis C has been neglected, partly because there has been no concerted patient voice. People with hepatitis C have typically kept quiet because it is infectious and because it has been wrongly stigmatised as ‘a drug users’ disease’.
