£47k Raised for The Hepatitis C Trust | Art on a Postcard Summer Auction

Dreweatts were thrilled to have been a part of this year's Art on a Postcard Summer Auction. The Timed Online Sale hosted by Dreweatts ran from 25 June - 9 July, ending with a hammer total of £47k, raising valuable funds for The Hepatitis C Trust's campaign to eliminate hepatitis C in the UK by 2025.

The auction featured a truly impressive and irresistible collection of original postcard sized artworks by a carefully selected roster of outstanding contemporary artists, including Boy George, Julian Opie, and Jake and Dinos Chapman.

Gemma Peppé, Director, Art on a Postcard, said 'We had half the normal amount of cards, we've organised this in a pandemic without being able to be in a room together and we haven't had an event... but the auction has been as great as ever! Thank you.'

We look forward to working with Art on a Postcard later this year... stay tuned for more details.
