Secret Postcard Auction - Catalogue and Bidding Details

Our Auction Catalogue, featuring the work of 80+ of the artists who've contributed to our Secret Postcard Auction, is now online. There's some great work in here, by a few famous names but also by some established contemporary artists and some rising artworld stars.

The money we raise at the auction is vital, as we want to start the underground work very soon - and this funding helps to make that happen.


Secret Postcard Auction Launch

Our auction launches this evening; please do join us for a drink, some music and the chance to view (and place commission bids on!) our submissions.

If you can't be with us, the full catalogue of artworks will be online tomorrow, as will registration and commission bid forms.

Secret Postcard Auction - works are in

More than 80 artists have created original postcard-sized artworks to feature in our exhibition and auction on the Margate Harbour Arm Gallery on Saturday 16 September.
The profits from all sales will support the reopening of the historic Margate Caves. 

Secret Postcard Auction

Artists are invited to create original postcard-sized artworks to feature in an exhibition and auction of work by new and internationally-acclaimed artists, illustrators and designers. The profits from all sales will support the reopening of the historic Margate Caves.

Reflecting the mysteries of the Caves, postcards will be exhibited with the artist’s name kept secret. Past exhibitors in the annual Margate event (which has supported a range of charities) include Tracey Emin, Grayson Perry, Paul Hazelton, Quentin Blake, Zandra Rhodes  Vic Reeves, and Dawn Cole.
