“Art on a Postcard is proud to present the third edition of its annual International Woman’s Day Auction, featuring work by leading established and emerging female identifying talent. Over 200 artists have created mini postcard sized masterpieces to be auctioned, with bidding starting at just £50, to raise proceeds to continue The Hepatitis C Trusts vital work in women’s prisons. Furthermore, this auction will support The Trust’s 2022 plans to expand their women’s hepatitis C work beyond the prison walls into probation services and women’s centres.
This year’s line-up features the work of highly collectable female identifying artists ranging from emerging new graduates to world-renowned artists. The 2022 participants include Charmaine Watkiss, whose work is concerned with what she calls ‘memory stories’. She creates stories primarily through research connected to the African Caribbean diaspora, and then maps the stories onto life sized figures. New York based artist Philemona Williamson joins the line-up, her work explores the tenuous bridge between adolescence and adulthood, along with Brooklyn based Louise Lawler aiming to raise questions about the production, circulation, and presentation of art through her creations”.
