Anonymous Art Postcard fundraising sale

Presentations - Live Art’s Secret Santa Sale consists of 200 original “one-off” postcard-sized artworks created and donated by leading artists including Red or Dead fashion label founder Wayne Hemingway, legendary singer-songwriter Elvis Costello, Academy Award winning Aardman Animations, Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, renowned doodlers John Burgerman and Pete Fowler, as well as Mancunian DJ and Producer Mr Scruff.

With established creatives selling alongside emerging talent from the website, this is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to purchase unique artwork on the high street, in time for the gift-giving season. The exclusive artworks are signed on the back so buyers don’t know the identity of the artist until they have purchased the postcard. Each art postcard will cost just £45, regardless of whether it has been made by a famous name or an emerging artist.

Artworks will be displayed in the windows of NOISELAB on Manchester’s Market Street for two weeks prior to the sale, for collectors to browse. The cards will be sold to the public during a one-day sale on Saturday 20th November.

Also for sale, and on display in the shop windows, are a series of large scale murals by Mark Wigan, Jon Burgerman and Pete Fowler, painted live at NOISELAB during 2010. Click here and search for the artists to find the listings.

All proceeds of the sale will go direct to the NOISE arts Charity, currently receiving no core funding for its work in promoting new talent. This fundraiser will help the organisation to continue their dedicated work to support original talent in Architecture, Fine Art, Moving Image, Photography, Fashion, Product Design, Word and Music.

Get down to NOISELAB early to avoid disappointment and get your first pick of a very unique piece of art.
