LONDON.- Art on a Postcard (AOAP) will host its fourth International Women’s Day Auction in March, announcing an entirely new format for this year. AOAP have invited seven female curators, including Beth Greenacre, Louise Fitzjohn (Liminal Gallery), Bakul Patki, Lee Sharrock, Mollie Barnes (She Curates) Sandra De Giorgi and Carrie Scott to each curate a show comprising of 20/25 female artists.

Each show will run as seven concurrent auctions, all raising money to support The Hepatitis C Trust’s work with women affected by the criminal justice system both in prison and local communities. Bidding starts at just £50 and opened online via The Auction Collective on 23 February 2023.

Beth Greenacre, whose clients have famously included David Bowie and more recently the all-female members club Allbright in Mayfair has put together a brilliant show, including rising star Caroline Zurmley who depicts moments of luxury using nail polish, alongside mixed media artist Catherine Achaintre, whose work is held in The Tate.

Curator, Art Consultant and TV presenter Carrie Scott works closely with artists to build their profiles and sales. Her ten year collaboration with Nick Knight saw sales of his fine art photography soar alongside groundbreaking Museum exhibitions of his work, while she programmed the SHOWstudio Shop. She has curated exhibitions internationally for 20 years for both established artists like Kim McCarty who will also exhibit in Carrie's AOAP auction and emerging artists such as Walter & Zoniel and Bindi Vora who the curator has also chosen to feature in this project.

Lee Sharrock runs her own arts PR and Curation consultancy, and is also a writer for publications including FAD, Artlyst and Creative Review. Most recently she has curated a charity art auction at Christie’s, a solo exhibition of Yurim Gough at APT gallery and a group show at 99 Projects. Lee’s auction highlights include British sculptor Abigail Fallis, known for her commentary about over-consumption and consumerism, printmaker and Royal Academician Anne Desmet, the magical works of Icelandic born artist and illustrator Kristjana Williams, and Korean ceramicist Yurim Gough.

Arts and culture curator and producer Bakul Patki is featuring multi-award winning Nina Mae Fowler who is known for her highly detailed, large-scale drawings and installations, Australian artist Jasmine Manbridge who works in sculpture, large-scale public works and intimate paintings for private collections, and French filmmaker and visual artist Cécile Davidovici, who creates tactile works with thread.

AOAP is also delighted to welcome back Mollie Barnes (She Curates) and Louise Fitzjohn (Liminal Gallery) who have both curated AOAP auctions in 2021. Mollie is bringing with her Slade Graduate Sara Berman and abstract artist Bethany Czarnecki, while Louise has engaged Flora Bradwell whose playful practice revels in the generously grotesque.

Finally, AOAP’s very own Sandra De Giorgi joins the line-up, cutting her teeth on her first curated show. Her thoughtful and impressive list includes Slade graduate Diane Chappalley, emerging talent Yaya Yajie Liang, Mizuki Nishiyama who creates raw, vivid, multifaceted paintings that explore the fragile human condition and the Chinese Scottish artist Elaine Woo MacGregor.

‘We are extremely lucky to have this exciting mix of interesting and successful women go to bat for us and create a fascinating and diverse show. The women’s auctions are always a bit rawer and more sensitive. The mixture of established and emerging talent is so engaging in this auction, it’s been fascinating to see each curator’s choices come to life.’ Gemma Peppé Founder and Director of Art on a Postcard.

Art on a Postcard is a unique platform that offers the opportunity to purchase beautiful limited- edition artworks by celebrated artists at affordable prices. Art on a Postcard is perhaps best known for its coveted postcard auctions. These eagerly anticipated events feature special edition artworks by renowned names that are auctioned anonymously for charity each year. Bidding starts at £50 and they offer a truly rare chance to own mini masterpieces by highly collectible artists, whilst supporting a worthwhile cause, The Hepatitis C Trust.
