This March, Art on a Postcard will curate their first all-female auction of original postcard sized art to observe International Women’s Day.
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.
The line-up includes luminaries such as Harmony Hammond, who has recently had her first European solo show at Bermondsey’s White Cube; the world renowned Guerrilla Girls, an anonymous group of feminist, female artists who have been devoted to fighting sexism and racism within the art world since 1985; and Caroline Coon whose artwork explores sexual themes from a feminist standpoint and who has exhibited at The Tate and The Saatchi Gallery.
The reserve price for the postcard sized works of art will start at £50, and the auction will take place on Paddle8.com from 27th February until 11th March 2020.
The auction will raise money to eliminate hepatitis C in women’s prisons. The Hepatitis C Trust has been working extensively in prisons across the UK as part of their campaign to eliminate hepatitis C by 2025. The Trust is addressing elimination across the female estate prior to the larger male estate. There is evidence to suggest that treating women has a greater impact on their local communities and subsequently society as a whole.
When: 27th February – 11th March 2020 for the auction and 2nd March 2020 for the artwork private view
Where: Online and at The AllBright, Mayfair, London for the artwork exhibition (RSVP)
£: Bids start at £50 per artwork
