The Hepatitis C Trust is excited to be hosting an ‘Art on a Postcard’ fundraiser. All artworks will be on show from 11-13 November 2014 at Whitfield Fine Art, London W1 and available to view and bid for online from end Oct (auction link and auction start date tbc). There is a guest list only evening event on 13 November which will round off the auction, but you can keep bidding online from wherever you are.
Contributors include Gilbert and George, Damien Hirst, Cecily Brown, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Jeremy Deller, Gavin Turk, Inkie, Whitney McVeigh and Martin Wilner. Over 200 artists including street artists, illustrators, photographers and tutors and students from the major art colleges including RCA, Slade, Goldsmiths, Chelsea and Wimbledon have also contributed and the quality of the work is exceptional.
A full list of the contributors’ names will be circulated before the sale, but the work will be anonymous to all but the winning bidder and not until the auction has ended.
Funds raised will go to The Hepatitis C Trust, the only UK charity for people with hepatitis C. The Hepatitis C Trust is the only UK charity for hepatitis C. The work we do covers many areas including outreach and testing, research, representation and support, providing information, raising awareness and policy and parliamentary work. As a direct result of our lobbying the government in April this year early access to new treatments was granted to patients who would otherwise have died. Many patients discover their diagnosis too late and overall only 3% of people with hepatitis C currently receive treatment. We are at a point where despite there being new drugs with a potential to cure everyone with hepatitis C, more people are dying of the disease than ever before.
Chief Executive of the Trust Charles Gore said: “We have been overwhelmed by the response we have received from world famous artists for this fundraiser. This is an amazing opportunity to buy a beautiful artwork and support us at the same time. This is our first Art on a Postcard auction and an incredibly exciting project for us. As a charity we want not just to reverse the ever rising death toll from hepatitis C but to consign this cancer-causing virus to history as a public health threat. You can help us do that. ”

The amorphous blob is a nice contrast against the rigid technical typography. It livens up the mood and expresses the sense of borderless freedom.
