Art on a Postcard Presents: Secret Auction 2017 for the Hepatitis C Trust

After the success of last year’s auction, which raised over £75,000, The Hepatitis C Trust’s Art on a Postcard Secret Auction returns for its 4th year. Guests at the private view on the 14th November at Unit London, included Sadie Frost, Alan McGee, Charlie Brooks, Dougie Wallace, David Harrison, Benjamin Murphy and Rowan Newton. World renowned artists including Jeremy Deller, Eduardo Terrazas, Micheal Swaney, David Harrison, Agathe de Balencourt, Amy Feldman Maggi Hambling, Antony Micallef, Shezad Dawood, Ben Eine and a host of Royal Academicians such as Mick Rooney RA, Vanessa Jackson RA, Rebecca Salter RA, and Mali Morris RA, as well as emerging talent are represented within the 400-plus postcard-sized original artworks up for auction. Proceeds from the auction will go towards the Hepatitis C Trust’s campaign to eliminate the virus as a major public health concern by 2030.

The public can bid here or they can bid in person at the live auction today (Thursday 16th November) at Ewbank’s auction house.

The artworks will be anonymous until the auction has ended, giving both established and budding art collectors the chance to get their hands on original works from some of the art world’s biggest names.

Harland Miller: ‘I donate to Art on a Postcard each year. They are raising money to eliminate Hepatitis C. I’m more than happy to do this, as each year they set out their targets, whether it’s getting Westminster or the World Health Assembly to sign up to their programme of elimination, each year they let me know they’ve succeeded. I know the money I help them raise is effective in helping them achieve their goals.’

Gemma Peppé, Director of Art on a Postcard: ‘I’m extremely excited to be holding this year’s secret auction at Unit London which is a fabulous space in central London. Art on a Postcard has blossomed into the best revenue source The Hepatitis C Trust has ever had… It’s fantastic to be able to combine such a successful and enjoyable event with raising serious money for charity.’

Art on A Postcard is the fundraising arm of The Hepatitis C Trust. 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 programme of elimination.
