Art on a Postcard presents its first all-female auction of original postcard sized art to observe International Women’s Day in March 2020. A list of outstanding women in the arts has been carefully chosen from those whose work has transformed stereotypes and made a significant impact on society and culture. I am delighted to have been invited to submit a work.
My contribution is Lot No 54 and is called “Notes for Women”, which references the Suffragettes movement in addition to the recent controversies of featuring women on British banknotes. The artwork is a collage of paper and copper leaf on 1952 series English Pounds – the first British note to ever feature a portrait of the reigning Monarch.
The reserve price for all the featured postcard sized works of art will start at £50. The auction will take place on Paddle8.com from 27 Feb – 11 March 2020. The artworks will be exhibited at The AllBright Mayfair on 2 March 2020.
All proceeds from this auction will support the Hepatitis C Trust, so every bid will help support this excellent cause.
