Postcards 6 x 4″ Open Call

6x4header

Postcards – small, intimate and unique are often collected and cherished. Nicola Prosser’s upcoming exhibition, 6×4” explores the postcard as a distinct artistic medium in its own right. You’re now invited to submit a postcard sized artwork to be included in 6×4″, do read on to find out more.

Artists’ postcards, are not only about creating images on a blank canvas – artists interacting with existing postcards, manipulating imagery by collaging found materials, drawing, painting or cutting into the surface can be equally interesting. The exhibition, 6×4”, provides an opportunity to explore the potential of this form through artist-designed or artist-manipulated postcards.

If you’d like to submit an image, do make sure you register your interest in being involved before 16th January 2013. You can employ any technique and can be drawn, typographic, photographic, printed onto, or manipulated.

Your work can be landscape or portrait, address any subject matter from conceptual to humorous and can be singular or part of a series. The only restriction is the image must fit within postcard dimensions!
