The fundraising sale consists of 200 original one-off postcard-sized artworks, all anonymised (as much as possible), that have been created and donated by leading artists including Wayne Hemingway, the legend that is Elvis Costello, Aardman Animations, Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy and Mancunian DJ, Producer and Teamonger Mr Scruff.
On sale for one day only from 12-6pm on Saturday the 20th November all works are priced at £45 each, regardless of whether created by a famous name or an emerging artist from the NOISEfestival.com website. A fair price too considering the right punt on a postcard could, at best, land you a big name artwork to hang on your wall or at worst leave you the proud owner of an original, unique piece of work.
All proceeds of the sales go direct to NOISE who currently receive no core funding for their work promoting new talent. Considering if they sell out that's only £9000 it's a small gesture that could help keep the organisation afloat through tough times.
