Postcard Art | 2017


Re-worked Vintage postcards to contemporary postcard works

A new departure for our annual small works exhibitions features‘Postcard Art’ Exhibiters from local to national were challenged to use vintage or contemporary postcards to create their original art works, whether collage, watercolour, ink, graphite, textile or original print,. The total becoming an installation – wall of works. The uniformity of the display works wonderfully, enabling total focus on the art itself.
