Art on a Postcard x St Wilfrid's Hospice Auction
Bidding open 14 September - 3 October | Online with The Auction Collective
Due to the overwhelming number of donations from artists keen to support this cause, we have made the decision to split the artwork between three auctions. In addition to our signature postcard auctions, we are introducing a special segment featuring larger pieces — an array of paintings and ceramics, generously contributed by renowned artists and dedicated supporters including Emma Mason. To be a part of this special event, please remember to register separately for each auction.
We are honoured to showcase works by distinguished artists like Sir Grayson Perry, Vanessa Jackson, and Mali Morris, to name a few. This curated selection also celebrates local connections with pieces from artists Mick Rooney, Lothar Götz, and Harold Mockford, all with deep ties to the region.
Joining the remarkable roster are artists known internationally, nationally, and emerging talents such as Winston Branch, Pam Glew, and Millicent Straker. Many artworks reflect the unique character of Eastbourne and the surroundings, bringing the local spirit alive.
This event holds a personal significance for Gemma, as St Wilfrid’s Hospice lovingly cared for her father in his last days, offering immeasurable support to her family. Gemma recalls the hospice team’s daily visits as a source of great comfort and the ability they granted her father to maintain his dignity in a familiar environment.
Inspired by their personal journey and the hospice’s unwavering support, Gemma is eager to give back through AOAP, assisting others to receive the same level of compassionate care.
Join us in this noble cause; together, we can help many more families find peace, support, and exceptional care during life’s most challenging times. Let us carry forth the spirit of generosity, community, and the healing power of art.

St Wilfrid’s Hospice provides high-quality care for people across Eastbourne, Seaford, Hailsham, Uckfield, Heathfield (and all points between) with life-limiting conditions.
Our expert teams support the physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual and practical needs of patients, and their families and carers. This is in the hospice building, in patients’ own home and in local care homes.
Only 30% of the funds needed to run the hospice and its services comes from the NHS – meaning we count on the community to help us with the rest. Every donation helps us do more for local people who need care and support.
Established in 2004 Emma Mason specialises in work by printmakers working in Britain from the 1940s onwards. It is run by Emma and Richard Mason.
Our story began with Emma meeting printmaker, Robert Tavener soon after we moved from London to Eastbourne in 2002 with our two young children. Emma and Tavener found that they had much in common and a friendship began. In the following years, before Tavener’s death, Emma helped him organise his studio and archive, spanning nearly fifty years of printmaking. The inspiration for setting up the gallery came from Robert Tavener, his work and the conversations Emma had with him about the craft of printmaking.
Emma has very generously donated artworks by Robert Tavener, James T.A. Osborne and Fred Whitehead RCA for this auction.
