About the Event

Welcome to our first ever Open Call! 

If, like me, you covet postcards of artworks you love but would never be able to afford, you know how valuable they are. Precious Postcards is about celebrating that accessibility to owning an artwork image but with original works on paper. People often think they can only afford to buy prints and, in turn, artists think that they need to make prints to be accessible. This collection will offer the opportunity for people to buy an original piece of your work for a price as affordable as a reproduction.

Each postcard sized artwork will be available to buy for under £40, so I'm envisgaing studies and musings that capture your unique artist’s essence, rather than extensively worked pieces.

A quarter of the proceeds will go to FoodCycle, a brilliant charity offering delicious weekly meals and conversation to people all over the UK.
