Be inspired. Create small works of art. Own original art! The MMA’s popular Postcard Salon returns in 2013.
Join the fun by (A.) creating your own postcards for the show and (B.) attending the party on February 7.
All postcards will be on sale for $30 apiece, so show them, sell them, and buy them.

Artists of all ages and skill levels, working in a wide array of media, are invited to take part. If you’re interested in participating, the event is free, but there are
A few rules:

  • Artists may enter up to five postcards which must measure 4”x 6” exactly and be on a heavy stock paper, rigid backing, photo paper, or other similar material. Securely attach a hanging device, and we can handle wood, glass, and ceramics, too. Depth is variable—if we can hang it on a nail, you can enter it.
  • All media are welcome, including paint, marker, pencil, collage, ceramic, found objects, and textiles. Subject matter is up to the artists, but of course creativity and originality are appreciated by viewers and coveted by buyers. COMPLETE GUIDELINES pdf
