International Postcard Show 2020

At Surface Gallery


International Postcard Show 2020
11th January – 1nd February
Opening Night: Friday 10th 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.

All artwork available for sale is priced at just £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.

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, a Jackson’s Art gift voucher as second prize, and a year’s subscription to Aesthetica magazine for 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 art space, Le Loovre.

Deadline for Submissions: 3rd January 2020, 6pm
