Saturday 29 July to Monday 4 September

Free Entry: 10am to 5pm (daily); August 9.30am to 5.30pm (daily)

Local and regional creative talent come together to promote access to art for all. 

No less than 110 established and emerging artists are displaying more than 1,000 miniature works of art on postcards for our summer exhibition. It features an outstanding array of affordable, portable art, with each piece remaining anonymous.

The postcard art can use any medium – from drawings, photographs and paintings through to printmaking and textiles. 

In a further twist, each postcard will remain unsigned when it’s on display, with the artist’s name only being revealed after each card has been purchased.  

Sally Ann Smith, curator for the Inspired by… gallery comments: “Postcard art is a recognised medium in its own right. It inspires the ingenuity of the artists, and can be a perfect starting point for the new collector.

“With the postcards going on sale for £25 each, we’re hoping the exhibition will open people’s eyes to the fact that art can be enjoyed by everybody and that owning an original piece really is possible.”
