The Postcard Show
Works available to purchase online from 2 December
Following on from the success of the first edition in 2013, the Postcard Show 2016 is a large fundraising exhibition at Sirius Arts Centre that will showcase unique, small-scale works in a variety of media from emerging and established local, national and international artists.
While the Sirius Arts Centre programme is supported by the Arts Council and Cork County Council, additional financial support must also be generated annually through fundraising initiatives to meet the needs of the programme. The Postcard Show 2016 will play a vital part in this fundraising initiative, thanks to the generosity of many friends, colleagues and supporters from all over the world who have donated artworks for the exhibition. Works from over 150 well-known and emerging artists will be shown in all three galleries and will be available for visitors to purchase from the arts centre or online for a mere €35 each, with all proceeds going towards the artistic programme at Sirius Arts Centre.
The artworks will be exhibited anonymously and can be viewed online through a dedicated website (details coming soon). Each artist’s name will be revealed after a purchase. Works will be available for purchase at the opening from 7pm and through the website from 2 December right through until the 22 December.
