You lucky Prestonians - the new Secret Preston Art card is by David Nash. Unbelievable!
We have just put all the limited edition cards in the venues around the city - so if you want one you'd better get going.
David Nash has shown work all over the world - USA, Japan, France, Spain, Australia, Germany, Switzerland, Korea, Hawaii, Poland and Italy and has work in many, many collections: Uffizi Gallery in Italy, Tate Gallery in London, The Arts Council Collection, The British Council, Soloman R Guggenheim Museum in New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo to name just a few.
He is a Royal Academician and was awarded the OBE for services to the arts in 2004.
He is currently showing work at Kew in a major exhibition
And he is also showing work here in Preston! David Nash has made new work especially for this project - so we are absolutely delighted. Only 100 in total have been printed and distributed - so if you'd like to own a David Nash limited edition post card - they are FREE!!
Get yourself down to The Museum of Lancashire, The Tourist Info Centre, Scene on Friargate, Wonderland on Friargate, The Pavilion in Avenham Park and the Continental Pub before they all get snapped up.

We are thrilled to say that the lovely shop Wonderland is back in Preston and will again become a venue for you to collect a free Secret Preston Art card. Fab.
Wonderland is on Friargate and open Monday to Saturday 10am until 5.30pm. Independent businesses need our support right now - so go along and see what goodies you can find in this delightful little shop.
And, it'll be this week sometime that the next SPA card is released into the world. It's a really special one this time - so get ready to run out and collect it. We'll keep you posted.
