An auction of original postcards will take place at the University of Worcester’s art studios in Hylton Road next week.
Third year Fine Art students are hosting the event at the Garage Studios, behind the Worcester News building, on April 17th at 6pm. It will raise funds for the students’ Fine Art Graduate Exhibition later this year.
Nationally recognised and internationally renowned artists and performers (as well as friends and colleagues) have generously donated their work and, in some cases, their autographs. Donors of autographs include A-list celebrities such as Sting, Courtney Cox, Robert Downey Junior and Trudie Styler and there are new works by artists including Clare Woods, Robert Perry, Jack Milroy and many others.
For a preview of the postcards, look at the blog http://thefinalshow2012.wordpress.com/
This will be a unique opportunity to buy original artworks at affordable prices and to have an enjoyable and entertaining evening with drinks provided. The auctioneer will be University of Worcester graduate Tom Whalley, who has appeared on the Antiques Roadshow.
