Both Art on a Postcard and the Art Car Boot Fair have International Women’s Day on-line events happening right now, Art on a Postcard have another of their always excellent auctions happening while Art Car Boot Fair have a week-long on line sale happening.

Both organisations have a reputation for finding and featuring exciting artists, both new and established, it is rather difficult and probably a little unfair to be cherry picking favourites from either event, however we have done just that.
