Postcard

In 1921 when the Pacific Art League was first formed, our Mission Statement was to ‘encourage friendship among artists”. Now almost 100 years later, in May of 2020,  PAL will once again be all about promoting friendship and connections between creatives. What better way to stay connected than through POSTCARDS!! For this open and unjuried exhibition we will ask artists to create artwork - framed or unframed - that is 4 x 6”. Any medium and any subject matter will be allowed as long as the artwork strictly fits a 4 x 6” format. Of course, themes including “wish you were here…” or “from the great state of…” will be most appreciated and humor will be considered an asset.

This show will be a great opportunity for emerging artists to exhibit along-side well known and established artists. It is also a great chance for artists outside California to exhibit their work to a new audience.  Artists can submit up to 15 postcards to this exciting show. This is the perfect time to start that limited edition series you’ve been wanting to start for the past few years.
