Call for Art: "Greetings From" Postcard Sized Art Exhibition

Opportunity

OXHEART invites artists from across the globe to participate in our first Greetings From postcard-size art exhibition which will take place at Squirrel Haus Arts (an 8,000 sq. ft. art incubator) in Minneapolis, Minnesota (U.S.) for a one-day art exhibition opening on Saturday, May 18th, 2019.

The reason for kicking off with the postcard-size art exhibition is to welcome artists to come together from all over the world and to bring new and exciting affordable art and artists to the Twin-Cities art community hence Greetings From. Your art does not need to include Greetings From, it does, however, need to be all you and your style. 

OXHEART is now accepting original artwork entries of any medium, style, and ability. Artwork must fit the specified postcard size of 4 inches high x 6 inches long x 0.016 inches thick (10 x 15.24 cm x 0.041 cm). We invite ALL artists over 18 years old to participate. All postcards will be displayed, combining the work of local, national, and international artists. 

The Greetings From postcard exhibition will feature hundreds of original creations in an assortment of different media by established and aspiring artists from all over the world. This exhibition will feature new work included by notable, international, and OXHEART alum favorites like Roy Aurinko (Finland), Stefanie Schairer (Germany), Steve Joester (New York), Tlisza Jaurique (New York), Marcus Zilliox (New York), Sarah Valeri (New York), Nick Stavrides (New York), Michael Palladino (New York), Sarah Rockower (New York), Gail Boykewich (New Jersey), and more!

Each original work is sold for an affordable $20 on a first-come-first-serve basis and the buyer will take the work with them at the time of the sale.  The exhibition will have a little something for everyone. Buy art and support living artists!
