To kick off our month-long International Women’s Day celebrations, we are delighted to host Art on a Postcard’s latest exhibition; the first all-female auction of original postcard-sized art which brings together an outstanding line-up of women in the arts, whose work has transformed stereotypes and made a significant impact on society and culture.
The exhibition will be available for Members to visit all day on Monday 2nd March. Join us from 6pm for a panel discussion focusing on women in art, featuring artist and activist Caroline Coon, abstract painter Vanessa Jackson RA and prizewinning painter Lara Davies, culminating in a private view and drinks reception.
The reserve price for all the featured postcard sized works of art will start at £50.
Panel Talk, 6-7pm; Private View, 7-9pm
About the exhibition
The exhibition’s 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 feminists, and Caroline Coon, whose artwork explores sexual themes from a feminist standpoint and who has exhibited at The Tate and The Saatchi Gallery.
At Art on a Postcard’s eagerly anticipated events, art is auctioned anonymously for charity offering a truly rare chance to own mini masterpieces by highly collectible artists, and proceeds supporting The Hepatitis C Trust.
About the panel
Caroline Coon is a British artist, writer and political activist, best known for her large-scale painted works challenging patriarchal and binary sexual stereotypes.
Vanessa Jackson, RA is a painter and installation wall painter, whose use of geometry and three-dimensional function deny the supposed flatness of modernist space. She was elected to the Royal Academy in 2015.
Lara Davies makes work that explores the notion of painting as a method of re-portrayal, where layers of removal from the source subject transform it into something with a different, often playful new life.
