This week The Surface Gallery on Southwell Road launched its first exhibition of 2012 with its annual  nostalgic look at the good old fashioned postcard.

A total of 265 postcards produced by 122 established practitioners, students, new comers and international artists  are exhibiting their original artwork in the 4″ by 6″ format. Each artist will be given the opportunity to receive an original artwork in exchange for their own.

These original artworks are also for sale throughout the exhibition, priced at just £15. This is an ideal opportunity to discover up and coming artists and to buy some original work for an affordable price.

This family friendly event also allows visitors to create your own personalised postcard, inspired by the exhibition. Providing a (pleasant?) escape from today’s instant communication society participants can send their own personalised, hand crafted postcard for just 70p to whom they wish. All postcards made as part of the interactive aspect of the show will be on display at the gallery for the duration of the show before posting out.
Sounds like a fun way to spend the afternoon or entertain the kids? For details of how to find the Gallery and opening hours please click here.
