postcard from your neighbor call for art
Postcards from Your Neighbor is a joint exhibition featuring members of K Space Contemporary and Rockport Center for the Arts. Members of each organization are asked to create postcard-sized artworks, 5 inches tall x 7 inches wide, which will then be “sent” to the other institution for exhibition. It’s a great way to unite the sister art communities and share our creativity with each other.
How to participate
Make a work of art
Create a 5 x 7 work of art that is suitable to hang on the wall. There will be 5 x 7 canvas boards for free pickup at Rockport Center for the Arts and K Space Contemporary beginning May 26 during regular business hours*.
