Extra-Ordinary Postcards

Jacqui Chapman co-curated this event with Laura Weston to help “save” the Williamson Art Gallery from closure. Jacqui introduced the idea to Colin Simpson, head curator of the Williamson.

It was a great success and several thousand pounds were raised from over 850 donations. These were received from artists locally, nationally, and as far afield as from New Zealand. Oxton Artist’s steering committee were the team who delivered the planning and execution of this event, along with many volunteers who made the evening a lively and well supported fund raising initiative.
