Art on a Postcard has transformed itself into Art on a Ukulele for September 2017. We have been working alongside the artist Mick Rooney RA, the UK’s foremost independent ukulele maker Pete Howlett and The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain on a project which combines music, art and fine workmanship.
30 ukuleles will be painted by luminary artists such as Bill Jacklyn RA, Allen Jones RA, Cathie Pilkington RA, Ramiro Fernandes Saus, PJ Crook, Norman Ackroyd RA and many more. They will be played by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain at a performance at The Jazz Café on September 12 and ultimately auctioned to raise money for The Hepatitis C Trust.
Throughout May and June we crowdfunded for this project with phundee.com and raised over £6000.
