Art on a Post Card

Our resident painter and artist Angie of Artangel is participating in an exhibit for Post Card Art Show run by i-Candy arts. This show is now in it's third year.

Taken from Angie's blog, she writes...

"It is an open submission for any kind of visual art, provided it's the size of a post card - hence the name! Well, actually, the permitted size for artwork is 6x4", though I discovered that most postcards these days actually seem to have shrunk to 5.5 x 3.5" (deflation? global warming??) but that's another story.

The show attracts entries from artists from all over the UK, and work has included paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, collage, written work and stained glass.

This year the show will be held at the Eat@Ours CafĂ© in Hastings, East Sussex, throughout March. I love the idea of accessible, affordable art - all work in the show is for sale at a flat rate of £10 and can be taken away there and then."

What a wonderful opportunity for this talented artist and we wish her the best of luck with a wealth of exposure. Great job Angie!!

LuLu thanks for your kind comments!

It's a bit far for me to get to the show too, though Catherine actually lives quite close and has said she will try and get there - isn't she a sweetheart!

Sharon thanks for posting this - am slightly embarrassed but very touched at the same time!
