All Artist Submissions Accepted to Annual Postcard Exhibit New York

We’ve participated in this annual event previous years. Stamps go on the outside envelope. Be sure that you send your post card art inside an envelope so you postal service doesn’t stamp it with cancellation marks and ruin the small work.




Each year hundreds of artists come together in support of A.I.R. Gallery by donating a small work for the annual postcard show. Past exhibitions have included work by notable artists, including Mary Beth Edelson, Dottie Attie, Mary Grigoriadis, Barbara Zucker and many more.

We invite all artists – male / female / trans –  to participate by donating a postcard-size work (6×4 inches) in any medium. Each original work is sold for $45 and all proceeds go to benefit A.I.R. Gallery programs.

With an impressive list of participants, The Feminist Art Project will present a diverse set of panels that will be of interest to anyone curious about contemporary art and ideas.
