The Big Art Secret...



Before I put up my next post this week, I thought I would share this worthy cause.
There will be an ebay link on their Facebook page should anyone across the pond be interested :0)

'In a special fund raising collaboration Towner, the contemporary art museum for South East England, and St Wilfrid's Hospice are staging ‘The Big Art Secret’ - an exciting exhibition and secret auction of original postcard sized art by celebrities, regional and nationally known artists and by local people and hospice patients. 

The auction aims to raise much needed funds for the Hospice’s new campaign - Campaign Hospice Reach – a campaign to transform end of life care for every person in our community.

The Big Art Secret features post card sized art which is signed on the back so that the identity of the artist remains secret until the end of the auction, when all is revealed. 
 
 The exhibition and auction has attracted national attention, and now features works by David Hockney, Tracey Emin, David Cameron and even David Dimbleby. There are over 500 pieces being exhibited and auctioned as part of the initiative. You could bag yourself a bargain if you can spot a masterpiece!

The exhibition at Towner in Eastbourne runs from 13 – 20 October with the eBay auction of all works running from 11 – 21 October.

  7. Sandra that sounds like a really good cause and a wonderful idea on how to raise funds for it. I'll definitely try to get a look and see if I can maybe bag a piece of art history (Tracey Emin isn't my taste but just think how much her piece would be worth!)
