National Portrait Gallery – Mystery Postcard Gala – 3/3/09

npg-gala-postcard-005.jpg

The National Portrait Gallery are having another fund raising gala evening following their 2006 event to raise funds to purchase a number of new key portraits for the collection , such as David Hockney’s “Self portrait with Charlie”  which they brought with the proceeds from the previous event.

They are staging a “mystery postcard” exhibition during the gala where they ask artists to do a portrait on an A5 postcard and sign it on the back . They are then displayed all together but totally anonymously , so you just choose which image you like best rather than the artists name. All are professional artists and some extremely famous so you may just bag a bargain.

The gallery invited me to do a postcard for the event and sent me 2 A5 cards – ( incase I made a mistake) – so I decided to do 2 portraits for them.

I can reveal my 2 portraits on 4th March and here are the reverse sides of the portraits. They will be exhibited throughout March at the gallery.
