Postcard Artists 0010


Traditionally, postcards are for faraway and cultural greetings. Like the person writing on them, each postcard is distinct, sharing different stories of distant lands in hopes of finding common ground. This feeling of mailbound multiculturalism is expressed at the 2nd Annual Postcard Perspective Exhibition at ARTSPACE at Untitled on Nov. 25 and 26.

Pp Fundraiser 0004


Postcard Perspectives is a collaborative mail art project featuring postcards received from over 29 different countries, as well as more than 20 states in the union. Thousands of 5-inch by 7-inch original pieces of artwork were mailed and donated by project participants including international and local artists, designers, students and teachers establishing a dialogue between cultures through artistic cooperation.

Instead of using standard paper postcards found in souvenir and travel stores, contributors are encouraged to design an original piece using a variety of artistic mediums, from oil painting and photography to fiber and natural elements. A list of all the contributors will be on display as part of the exhibition, though the individual postcards will be presented anonymously. For more information on attending the exhibition, please visit the ARTSPACE at Untitled website.
