For September 2017 Art on a Postcard will transform itself into Art on a Ukulele. They are joining forces with artist Mick Rooney RA, Pete Howlett the UK's foremost independent ukulele maker and The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain on a project which combines music, art and fine workmanship.

The project was inspired by Mick's submission to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2016, a beautifully hand crafted ukulele painted in his instantly recognisable rich, poetic style. Mick has invited his peers at the RA and a host of well known and loved artists to create 30 painted ukuleles.

The instruments will be played by The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain along with some special guests at The Jazz Cafe in September holding an event to auction them. All the money raised will go to The Hepatitis C Trust and their campaign to eliminate hepatitis C by the year 2030.

To compliment the crowdfunding campaign, contributors will be in for the chance to win a hand painted plectrum, in a project entitled 'Art on a Plectrum'. 50 artists including Ben Eine, Pure Evil, Sara Pope, Hayden Kays, Pam Glew, Shuby, Ray Richardson, Benjamin Murphy, and Pure Evil have painted and decorated wooden plectrums with fantastic results. You will get a plectrum by one of the artists and they will be allotted at random by a computer generated program. Like a lucky dip! To see all the plectrums go to this LINK
