Exhibition: February 1-15, 2018
Salon Reception: February 15, 5:30 – 8:00 pm (Sale 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm)
The Postcard Salon is a celebration of creativity. Over 1,400 cards from artists from West Michigan and beyond were on display last year, offering a huge range of materials and subject matter to enjoy. Now in its 12th year, the Postcard Salon reflects the Muskegon Museum of Art’s commitment to Michigan artists, a chance for people of all ages and skill levels to share their work with the public.
The exhibition is free to enter and all submitted cards are installed, making the show a true community endeavor. The exhibition is also a great opportunity to support the area arts community by purchasing an original work of art. Join us this year for the first ever juror awards, singling out four remarkable cards. (Artwork submission deadline was January 21, 2018.)
Beginning at 7:00 PM on Thursday, February 15, all of the postcards on display in the Wiener Gallery will be for sale at $30 apiece. Don’t miss this opportunity to own an original artwork by your favorite regional artists. Buyers will be able to take the works directly from the walls and pay for them at several locations throughout the museum. Muskegon Museum of Art members will be given a five-minute head start beginning promptly at 6:55 PM. The sale ends at 8:00 PM, so don’t miss out. Memberships can be obtained in the Museum Gift Store, or in the gallery on the 15th.
Frame and Mat Shop of Grand Haven will again be on hand on February 15 to sell custom frames. All proceeds will benefit the MMA.
