6×4″ Exhibition Submission – Cooper Gallery Project Space, Dundee

My friend Nicola Prosser is organising this exhibition, if you would like to submit work. It sounds like an open and very worthwhile show to be involved in.

6×4” Exhibition

OPEN CALL

6×4” is an exhibition that will explore the postcard as a distinctive artistic medium in its own right. Artist-designed postcards are small, intimate, unique pieces to be either distributed or collected by individuals.

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

Images can employ any technique and can be drawn, typographic, photographic, printed onto, or manipulated. They 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.

The exhibition is just about exploring and enjoying the format and having a bit of fun with it.

Questions can be submitted on http://artistspostcards.tumblr.com/ or can be emailed to 6x4postcards@gmail.com.
