Small postcard exhibition October 2021

This is a unique exhibition of over 100 small postcards on display in Edinburgh Palette, POP UP Gallery.

At this challenging time we at Space Artworks were very keen to reconnect with our artists and communities. The small postcard project came about to support and involve those who have been living in isolation in order to encourage creative expression and participation, with the ultimate aim of staging a group exhibition of artworks, which is now possible and open to all.

We sent out blank postcards with return postage at the start of 2021 to individual homes, day services and supported living residencies. Over several months they have quietly and gradually been returned to us and it has been an absolute delight to see the finished artworks. They have all been created in very personal ways responding to the chosen theme of CONNECTIONS as connecting to the environment, home, family, place, and global events. Realised in stitch, print, paint, collage and photography as abstract and realistic outcomes. Now on display as a hanging installation they are a joyful and unified collection of small artworks.
