6by4 success...

This last weekend saw Art Space Portsmouth host its 6by4 Secret Postcard Exhibition. The event was a great success as we welcomed record numbers through the door. There were nearly 800 artworks for sale. Many beautiful works flew off the walls. As I was involved with the project I needed to wait for the event to finish before choosing a card for myself. I chose a beautiful drawing entitled 'Child of the Atom' by David Blandy which I will picture soon.

Thank you so much to all the generous artists and creatives for donating their fantastic artworks. I was so amazed at the response to this project. I would also like to thank all the volunteers at Art Space who worked so hard to make the event so successful.

The cards can be viewed on Flickr here.

My entry is pictured below ... I was very pleased that it sold.

At last I have found the time today to make my postcard for the 6by4 Secret Postcard Exhibition and fundraising sale at Art Space Portsmouth (where I have my studio).

Obviously I cannot post it here otherwise my entry wouldn't be a secret!

If you would still like to make postcard for this event, you have until tomorrow to do so. Please click here for further details.

The exhibition and selling event will take place as follows:

Secret Postcard Exhibition and Sale
Preview: Friday 12th November, 6pm - 9pm
Sale of artwork commences at 7pm on a first come first served basis

Exhibition and sale continues:
Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th November, 12noon - 5pm
at GASP, Art Space Portsmouth, Southsea, Hampshire PO5 4PA

This is a one-off opportunity to buy an original art work for just £20 - the perfect Christmas gift!

To help celebrate our 30th Anniversary Art Space is hosting an exhibition full of delicious surprises. We've asked artists, designers, musicians, TV personalities and assorted creative types to make and donate an original postcard-sized art work in their medium of choice. The artists' identity will remain secret until the point of purchase.

Emerging talent will be shown alongside established artists and media superstars giving art lovers and collectors the chance to purchase a hidden gem at the very reasonable flat rate of £20.

Contributers so far include Martin Parr, Wayne Hemingway, Sir Paul Smith and Richard Wilson. We've had entries from all over the world including the Ukraine, France, USA and the British Virgin Islands. Many submissions come from artists with international reputations, some of whom have played a significant role in the history of Art Space Portsmouth and Aspex Gallery.

All proceeds from the sale of postcards will help support future Art Space projects and initiatives.

Art Space Portsmouth is a charitable organisation providing much needed support for artists in the region. 28 of our 45 members rent a studio space in a converted chapel and the group makes a significant cultural contribution to the city and beyond through exhibitions, workshops and public projects.
