Build a collection Art postcards are considered, within the art world, the most exciting and affordable way to start or add to a collection. “Going Postal” offers a unique opportunity for buyers to acquire original, 4” X 6” postcard-sized artwork for JUST $85 EACH (less than a dinner out) Sales are available on a first-come, first-served basis and each piece is exhibited anonymously, and the identity of the artist is revealed only after the work is purchased. All participants can take home a piece by a famous artist, or one who's just starting out. Nonetheless, collectors walk away with something beautiful, a piece of art they will love and collect!
