Art Gallery at the University Center
4x6/6x4 Postcard Exhibit

February 18 – March 8, 2013
Monday through Friday, Noon to 4:00 pm,
University Center, Colorado Mesa University
FREE AND OPEN TO PUBLIC

The Art Gallery at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colorado is pleased to issue a Call for Artist participation in our second invitational postcard exhibition.

The 4x6/6x4 Postcard Charity Event Exhibit will be an exhibition of original artworks, made and donated by artists from around the world. Each artwork will be postcard sized at 4x6 or 6x4 inches. You can download the entry form here.

All of the postcard-sized artworks will be for sale to the public at $20 each to benefit the Art Department Endowment Fund. (The permanent endowment has been established to support of a variety of Art Department programs, including visiting artists, exhibitions, equipment purchases, and other events or items that directly support student education.)

New this year will be a catalog of all participants’ artwork available for purchase after the exhibition opening. A link to the publication will be posted here (the 4x6/6x4 Postcard Exhibit site) after February 18, 2013.

Once again, we invite artists from around the world to participate by sending artwork that is sized at 4x6 or 6x4 inches, unframed and light enough to be hung with T-pins (gallery walls are carpeted). All artwork submitted must be available for the duration of the show, for sale at the price of $20 each, and will be the property of the Colorado Mesa University Art Department if unsold at the close of the exhibition.

Last year, the 4x6 or 6x4 works came from many U.S. states; and from countries as diverse as Italy, Japan, Montenegro, Indonesia, and Finland; they were in varied media including acrylics, oils, collage, fibers, pencil, ink, and block and intaglio prints.
