Spring Has Sprung - Curated by Jealous Gallery
We're excited to announce the launch of our mini Art on a Postcard Auction curated by Jealous Gallery. Spring has Sprung is packed full of all the idiosyncrasies we love about Jealous, the artwork is playful, has a sense of humour and is imbued with optimism.
Artists such as Stanley Donwood, who has a number of print releases and a forthcoming solo exhibition with Jealous, is most famous for Radiohead’s artwork and his numerous prints for Glastonbury; Miss Buggs who had an eye-poppingly great show at Jealous Gallery prior to lockdown with subverted resin ice lollies containing syringes, razors and pills; and the acclaimed artist and illustrator Paul Davis.
This auction is part of the celebrations for the 20th anniversary of The Hepatitis C Trust. All money raised will be donated to the Trust's campaign to eliminate hepatitis C by 2030.
"We chose the title Spring has Sprung as we are all emerging from a long dark, hard winter and we need some fun and colour now. We are happy to play a part in making this 20 year anniversary special and contribute to the great work The Hepatitis C Trust does.” - Louise Fitzjohn
