The Hepatitis C Trust’s Art on a Postcard Secret Auction raised £74,000 last night.
The Secret Auction exhibition was held at Maddox Gallery Mayfair and featured work from International household names including Damien Hirst, Grayson Perry, Maggie Hambling, Oliver Jeffers, Peter Blake, Harland Miller, Gilbert & George and a host of Royal Academicians such as Ken Howard RA, Mick Rooney RA, John Wragg RA, Rebecca Salter RA, and Steven Farthing RA, as well as emerging talent. As always, proceeds from the auction go towards the Hepatitis C Trust’s campaign to eliminate the virus as a major public health concern by 2030.
Grayson Perry said: ‘I’m delighted to be part of this year’s The Hepatitis C Trust’s Art on a Postcard Secret Auction. While the secret auction democratises art, funds raised will help The Trust in it’s work towards ridding the county of hepatitis C, a killer disease which disproportionally affects an underprivileged community.’
Gemma Peppe, Director of Art on A Postcard hand-picked all the artists and has a clear vision for the significance of the postcard sized works, ‘At the start of this project in 2014, we were conscious to create something that was truly inclusive and engaging but that also was true to our current economic and political landscape. Postcard sized artwork does just that. Small works of art are a symbol of the austerity we have been living through, economical for our artists to make and our audience to buy, perfectly sized to fit easily onto the wall of a London apartment, and if none of the above, great, collectible, artworks in their own merit.’
Art on A Postcard is the fundraising arm of The Hepatitis C Trust and to date has now raised over £270k. The Hepatitis C Trust is working towards eliminating hepatitis C in the UK by 2030. In 2015 our campaigning led to the Scottish Government committing to our program of elimination.
