The International Postcard Show 2014
Call for submissions
Surface Gallery invites artists from across the world to participate in The International Postcard Show, taking place from 15th January – 8th February 2014.
This exciting exhibition is a highly popular event at Surface Gallery, with all entries accepted and included in the show. It will feature hundreds of original creations in an array of different media by established artists, students and newcomers from all over the world.
All artists can choose to have their work on sale during the exhibition, and these postcards will be priced at £15, so this is a fantastic opportunity to snap up an original work of art at an affordable price. Alternatively, all participants have the opportunity to exchange their postcard with another artist, who will be randomly selected at the end of the exhibition.
In the case of no sale or if you opt out of selling your work(s) and do not wish to take part in the international exchange, your postcards will be returned to you via post following the exhibition.
All works received with a completed application form before the deadline will be accepted and exhibited as part of the show. Artworks in any medium are welcome, but must fit the postcard-sized specifications of 4x6 inches (10.5x15cm) with a maximum depth of 5mm.
Deadline for arrival of submissions: 6pm, Friday 10th January 2014. (Please account for delivery time when posting your submission as we cannot accept works that arrive after this date).

2014 Exhibition Submission
Surface Gallery welcomes exhibition proposals for 2014. We accept applications from groups and curators as well as individuals. These will be considered and selected based on the content of the proposed show not the profile of the artist(s) involved.
Surface Gallery offers a very varied and diverse exhibition programme, selected largely through proposals submitted to the gallery. We also curate a number of annual open shows throughout the year, details of which will be available on this page during the exhibition’s call for submissions period. This offers individuals the opportunity to exhibit in an exhibition curated by Surface Gallery
The exhibition programme aims to support emerging artists by offering them a high quality space for hire in which to exhibit work and encourage artists to be ambitious and adventurous in their practice
If you would like to submit a proposal for a show please download an application pack below. This contains details of what to include in your application, what Surface Gallery can provide, a gallery floor plan and relevant cost information. Alternatively please email us if you have any further questions.
Please note that the exhibitions programme is now full for the first half of 2014. We will be selecting exhibitions for the rest of the year in March 2014.
Surface Gallery is also available to hire for art based events and talks. We are interested in working with individuals or groups who want to organise and hold a creative event in a unique setting. This should focus on the arts and engaging with the local arts community.
