The International Postcard Show 2018
13th January - 10th February
Opening Night: Friday, 12th January, 6 - 9pm
Surface Gallery is excited to welcome back the International Postcard Show. This vibrant, long-running exhibition is a highly popular feature of our calendar, and includes hundreds of original artworks from established and aspiring artists from all over the world. All submissions are included, from painting and print through to textiles and illustration, creating a wonderfully eclectic mix of artwork.
As the Nottingham Post commented on last year's show: "Surface Gallery's Postcard Show has become a fixed event in Nottingham's exhibition calendar. And if you still haven't been able to get to one, then do your best to see this year's wild and wonderful incarnation .... There is, as the phrase goes, 'something for everyone.'"
All artwork is priced at £15, so this is a fantastic opportunity for visitors and aspiring art collectors to snap up an original work of art at an affordable price.
All participating artists will have the opportunity to exchange their postcard with another artist selected at random at the end of the exhibition. We hope that this exchange will help foster new connections and encourage communication among artists from diverse backgrounds and different parts of the world.
A panel of Surface Gallery judges will select three prize winners. The prizes include a £50 first prize, an original signed drawing by Zoe Spowage as second prize, and a piece of Keishi Jewellery as third prize. The People’s Prize is chosen by our visitors who will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite artwork. The People’s Prize will be an exhibition in the Surface Gallery’s alternative artspace, Le Loovre.
The International Postcard Show will open in the Main Gallery in conjunction with Of a Curious Nature: An Exhibition by NTU Fine Art Students, which will take place in the Project Space. As always, there will be a donations bar with ales from local brewery, Springhead.
Free Entry: Everyone Welcome
