Wish you Were Here: Call for Postcard Show.

From A.I.R. Gallery:

We invite you to participate in our yearly benefit postcard show, Wish You Were Here 10 from June 22 – July 16, 2011. Last year’s exhibit had work by over 400 artists including Kiki Smith and Mary Frank. This year we hope you will join us in our mission to provide leadership and community to women in the arts by exhibiting your work in Wish Your Were Here 10.

The postcards, made and donated by artists nationwide—both men and women—will be shown in our Gallery III space. Each will be signed, titled and dated and may include a message from the artist. The cards will be labeled and a list of participating artists will be made available to gallery visitors. All postcards will be priced at $45 including New York State sales tax.

To participate:

1. Create a wall mountable artwork that is 4” x 6”

2. Print on the back of the card:

  • your name
  • the title of the piece
  • the materials used
  • the date of completion

3. Write your phone number and email address on the card OR on a separate piece of paper so the gallery can contact you regarding your work.

4. Mail or hand-deliver your piece in an envelope postmarked by Saturday June 4th 2011 to:

A.I.R. Gallery
111 Front Street #228
Brooklyn NY 11201

5. Any work that is not sold will be returned to artists who enclose a SASE with their submission. Any unsold work that is not accompanied by a SASE upon submission and is not picked up by December 31, 2011 will become the property of A.I.R. Gallery.

This year we will also be accepting diptychs and triptychs in which each part is 4” x 6” in size.

We hope that you will be part of Wish You Were Here 10 and we look forward to seeing you at the special Postcard Show opening on Wednesday, June 22, from 6pm to 8:30 pm, for the reception on Thursday June 23 from 6pm to 8:30pm for all three exhibits we will have on view or for the DUMBO 1st Thursdays Gallery Walk on Thursday, July 7 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.
