Once again, we are pleased to be hosting the Art on a Postcard Winter Auction. This year the auction, running from Thursday 9 – Thursday 23 November, features nearly 600 postcard sized artworks, curated by six distinguished curators, including presenter, art critic & comedian Verity Babbs. The proceeds from the auction will help the Hepatitis C Trust, raising funds for their vital unfunded helpline.
