“She Curates x Art on a Postcard”, now that sounds rather good….
|A Mini Postcard Auction|
|“Art on a Postcard (AOAP) is delighted to have engaged the curating skills of Mollie E Barnes AKA She Curates to produce a mini auction as part of The Hepatitis C Trust’s 20 year celebrations. Mollie is an Independent Curator based in the south England. Keen to address the gender and equality disparity in the art world, Mollie founded She Curates (@she_curates_) in 2020, a platform aimed at championing the voices and stories of women and queer artists around the world.|
The auction consists of 30 plus cards created by a handful of dynamic female identifying artists including Olivia Sterling who graduated with an MA from the RCA in 2020 and has carved out a distinctive niche in using paint to address questions of race. Helen Downie AKA Unskilled Worker whose work has been described as ‘a melee of ethereality, innocence, inherent flow and instinct that all come together in a spectacular fashion’. Sahara Longe whose work re-examines visual hierarchies and art historical traditions and New York based artist Bianca Nemelc a figurative painter, whose work explores the connection between the female form and the natural world.
To complement the auction Mollie has been working closely with Art on a Postcard to create some great content, including a podcast and some short films”.
All the money raised goes to The Hepatitis C Trust and its campaign to eliminate hepatitis C by 2030.
“It has been an absolute pleasure to work along AOAP. To have utter creative freedom is such an honour as a curator. The responsiveness and excitement demonstrated by this esteemed and incredible group of artists is a true testimony to the immense work that AOAP does every day” – Mollie E Barnes
