Calling all artists – this is your chance to demonstrate your creativity, and help support St Michael’s Hospice.

Postcards from Life gives art lovers the opportunity to own a miniature masterpiece produced by a talented pool of professional artists and talented amateurs.

To date, it has raised over £22,000 for St Michael’s.

Each artist is asked to come up with an original 6” x 4” postcard-sized artwork of whatever subject they wish. This must be submitted by Friday, 8th September.

The work is then exhibited in the grand surroundings of The Great Hall at Hereford’s Bishop’s Palace, before being auctioned online with funds going to St Michael’s.

Last year’s event featured almost 400 pieces of art, created by more than 150 Hospice supporters.

A total of 2,249 bids were cast with online interest from as far away as Australia, the United States and Spain.

To register your interest and request the artist’s brief for this year, call Paddy on 01432 851 000 or email

The Bishop’s Palace exhibition will run from 10th-12th November.
