This November, hundreds of postcards created by artists across Herefordshire and beyond will go up for auction.

All of the works of art have been devised for free by a talented range of exhibitors as part of St Michael’s Hospice’s Postcards from Life event.

The artwork will also be available to view online ahead of a three-day exhibition of the work at the Bishop’s Palace in Hereford from November 10 – 12.

Entries depict country houses, animals and idyllic rural sketches, among other subjects.

‘I’m delighted that such a wonderful array of artwork will again be showcased at the Bishop’s Palace,’ said the Bishop of Hereford, the Right Reverend Richard Frith.

‘It is a wonderful sight to see the exhibition in such a historic setting.

‘It is also pleasing that money raised from Postcards from Life will go to St Michael’s Hospice.

One of the artists taking part is Kerry Berkeley.

‘Postcards from Life is such a clever way to raise money for the Hospice, and is something I wanted to do as a way of giving something back for the care the nursing staff there have given to my friends and family,’ she said.

‘It’s also a privilege to be exhibiting with so many of Herefordshire’s most talented artists, and I am excited about seeing all the miniature masterpieces on display.’
