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.
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.
