Art on a Postcard!
These are my entries into this year's Post Card Art Show. Run by i-Candy arts, the show is now in it's third year. It is an open submission for any kind of visual art, provided it's the size of a post card - hence the name! Well, actually, the permitted size for artwork is 6x4", though I discovered that most postcards these days actually seem to have shrunk to 5.5 x 3.5" (deflation? global warming??) but that's another story. The show attracts entries from artists from all over the UK, and work has included paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, collage, written work and stained glass. This year the show will be held at the Eat@Ours Café in Hastings, East Sussex, throughout March. I love the idea of accessible, affordable art - all work in the show is for sale at a flat rate of £10 and can be taken away there and then.
