Grayson Perry and John Baldessari named as contibutors



An email from the college to their RCA secret mailing list has confirmed the news we were all hoping for - that Grayson Perry has again contributed to RCA secret.  After a break last year it is such wonderful news to have Grayson Perry back, not least because of the care and love he puts into every card he makes for the show.   I know Grayson gets asks to do loads of charity gigs and he does contribute art to lots of different causes but his support of RCA secret has been immense over the years.


I count myself very lucky to have a couple of cards by Grayson in my collection.  Fingers crossed for this year too.


John Baldessari has also donated works to the exhibition on a number of occasions before and his presence is again extremely welcome.  When you add in the previously announced Sir Peter Blake, Paula Rego, Yinka Shonibare and Jeremy Deller it's certainly looking like a very exciting year.


If there is to be no raffle this year you have to wander what the queue is going to be like come sale day with such big names present.  The lack of raffle will certainly add a new dimension come queue time.

Give some of the other collectors, who aren't lucky enough to have a Grayson card in their collection, a chance :-P

:) Lee you will definitely be ahead of me in the queue so this could be your year.

Thank you Perry, but as you know being ahead isn't always a guarantee of buying the card you fall in love with. I wish you good luck :-)
