Secret Postcard Exhibition

Take Part Online:

As an independent charity, we need your support now more than ever, so we are encouraging people to browse the exhibition and place bids online from 15 - 25 June 2020. Please subscribe to our newsletter for the latest updates on how to get involved from home.

Now a major event in the national art calendar, the RWA Secret Postcard Exhibition offers you the chance to view all 200+ exquisite miniature artworks and to place some early bids before the Secret Postcard Auction Event

All of the postcards in this auction have been submitted anonymously by professional artists and the identities of who did which postcard remains secret until the auction ends.

Each artwork measures around 7" x 5" (19 x 14 cm) and is signed on the back, so buyers either have to guess who the big name artists are or just buy what they like.

Bidding starts at just £40, which is a very reasonable price for a unique piece of art, and if it turns out to be by a Turner Prize winner or other leading artist, it might just be the bargain of the century! 

Last year we received contributions from many internationally acclaimed artists including Basil Beattie, Dame Joan Collins, Eileen Cooper, Susan Derges, Tracey Emin, Gilbert & George, Antony Gormley, Bill Jacklin, Allen Jones, Anish Kapoor, Christopher LeBrun, David Nash, Ana Maria Pacheco and Nick Park, among many others.
