OPEN CALL For Artists: Postcard Show

We invite you to create postcard size artworks to exhibit with us in March 2020. Open to all ages and abilities, artists and creatives. This show celebrates the humble postcard as a format and material for creating artworks. 

The earliest known picture postcard is said to have been sent in 1840 in London and since then has become an icon around the world and a beloved collectors item.

We hope to fill the gallery with artworks which celebrate this legacy and also transform it with new creative ideas. Artists can use the postcard as a material for experimental work or as a format for more traditional options, anything is possible but it all starts with the humble postcard.

If you represent a school, college or other educational group and are interested in participating please get in touch regarding a group entry.
