Open: 25th January – 11th February Preview: 24th January 6-8pm
Curated by the Surface Gallery in Nottingham, this long-standing annual exhibition features hundreds of original artworks connected solely by their 4” x 6” format. The show brings together works by established practitioners, students, new comers and international artists from as far afield as Europe and USA, with each individual postcard acting as a celebration of the diversity in practice and location of the participating artists.
Following the success of last year’s very first Surface Gallery artwork exchange, all participating artists have once again been given the opportunity to receive an original artwork in exchange for their own following the completion of the show. This unique aspect of the exhibition offers artists the chance to connect worldwide through a random and remote exchange system. These original artworks are also for sale throughout the exhibition, priced at just £15. This is an ideal opportunity to discover up and coming artists and to buy some original work for an affordable price.
Before the days of emails, Facebook, and Twitter people would send postcards that time-travelled all over the world as a way to 'keep in touch'.
