Artist Talk: Art on a Postcard for International Women's Day - AllBright Club, Mayfair

Art on a Postcard (AOAP) will be hosting an artist talk as part of their International Women's Day Event at The AllBright Mayfair. The discussion will focus on women in art and will feature artist and activist Caroline Coon, abstract and installation painter Vanessa Jackson RA and prizewinning painter Lara Davies. All three panel members have work in the AOAP auction and there will be a chance to ask questions.


Art on a Postcard supports The Hepatitis C Trust in their campaign to eliminate hepatitis C by the year 2025 and the panel will be introduced by AOAP founder and director Gemma Peppè and chaired by art curator Beth Greenacre, who was David Bowie's curator and has curated the all-female collection at AllBright.


Meet The Panel:

Chair: Beth Greenacre


Beth Greenacre is a curator, art consultant and advisor with over 20 years experience in the art world and extensive art market expertise in both the primary and secondary markets, specifically in modern and contemporary art. Beth was co-director of ROKEBY, London, a commercial gallery, which from 2004 – 2017 exhibited over 77 artists, participated in some of the world’s leading art fairs and collaborated with institutions worldwide.
From 2000 until the artist’s death, she was curator of the David Bowie Collection and in November 2016 oversaw the sale of a selection of work from the collection at Sotheby's. The sale, which took place in three parts, followed a series of exhibitions around the world that attracted an unprecedented number of visitors and broke all expectations in terms of sales.
Beth sits on the Courtauld Association Committee and the Steering Committee for the Future of the UK Contemporary Art Market report.


Caroline Coon

Caroline Coon is a British artist, writer and political activist, best known for her large-scale painted works challenging patriarchal and binary sexual stereotypes. Her oil colour paintings usually start with sketches and drawings that are then squared up and transferred to canvas. The ongoing ‘Arena Series’ of paintings alludes to the beauty of sport - the enduring glamour of competition and play. 



Vanessa Jackson RA


Vanessa Jackson is a painter and installation wall painter, whose use of geometry and its three dimensional function deny the supposed flatness of modernist space. Her work explores the contradiction of a fully realised space at once pertaining to logic and completeness and uncertainty and unease. The ornamental and optical play of colour and form in the artist’s work both confirms and confuses the sense of perception. Vanessa Jackson was elected to the Royal Academy in 2015.  



Lara Davies


Lara Davies was born in 1985 in Maesteg and lives and works in Cardiff. Between 2005 and 2006 she attended the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, Oxford University, and in 2010 she was awarded a First Class BSc (Hons) in Mathematics, Operational Research and Statistics from Cardiff University. She has exhibited nationally and internationally in group exhibitions, including the John Moores Painting Prize at the Walker Museum, Liverpool, ‘Into A Light’ at the Prints and Originals Gallery, Saatchi Gallery, London, and ‘Sideways into the Distance’, Galerie RDV, Nantes, France.
