We've just received the news that the Postcards response show is opening later today (November 9) at Beacon Arts Riverwinds Gallery in New York. Love the title = 'Air Mail: Artist Postcards from Oz'. We've received first image, along with a link to the exhibition information on the Gallery's website. If you are planning a trip to NY, the show runs through to December 8.

Friday night. It was a mild evening; the departure lounge gallery was quietly filling with members and friends. Light music from the talented Benalla Guitar Ensemble floated across the room. Wine and finger food circulated.
The pictures on the wall were gathered together, ready to go, a lot of them, over 60 works. Compared to the pictures which came across from New York to Benalla, the local products look slightly wild, off the wall and energetic, ready for anything. Did I hear them humming there on the walls?
When they hit New York, crowded onto the gallery walls, telling their story to anyone who will look, I think the message will be loud and clear. Energy, invention, directness and a staggering diversity of image and subject. It’s a great message and a great project. Congratulations to the artists and the curator Irina Korotkow... look out New York….

'Bronx Diner' Mary Ann Glass 2019
Twenty-eight artists from New York’s Hudson Valley (about 60-70 miles north of New York City along the Hudson River) were asked to make postcard-sized (6x8 inches) artwork on paper, cardstock, or unstretched canvas. The works encompass oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings as well as photography, mixed media, collage art and woodcuts. Following the success of this exhibition, we are calling all local artists to provide their responses to these works.

Response works will be hung in NEA Gallery 2 in September before making their journey to Riverwinds Gallery in Beacon, New York. All art works will be for sale for $AU50, with a 20% commission going to the exhibiting gallery. Any unsold works will be returned.
