Roxbury Arts Group presents holiday postcard exhibit

Roxbury — The Roxbury Arts Group is excited to present its upcoming holiday exhibition, “Wish You Were Here: Winter 2012 Postcard Show.” Artists think big as they create small works for your viewing pleasure and holiday wish lists. This show will be on view in the Walt Meade Gallery at the Roxbury Arts Group Center, 5025 Vega Mountain Road, from November 10 through January 12. The Roxbury Arts Group will regale artists and guests with an opening reception on Saturday, Nov. 10 from 4 to 6 p.m.

As it becomes ever more difficult to find perfect gifts that don’t reek of commercialism, this show allows art lovers the chance to share memorable, one-of-a-kind treasures with other art lovers, young and old. Featuring original works of varying subject matter – paintings, drawings, photographs, and other media – these affordable one-of-a-kind gems will delight the eyes and fill the senses with highly concentrated wonder.

Artwork prices are based on size: Just $75 for 4x6 images and $100 for 5x7 images. Suitable for hanging, they reflect the visionary gifts of a number of regional artists. In addition to the range of inspiring original artwork, folded greeting cards with envelopes and postcards reproducing the work of exhibiting and non-exhibiting artists will also be available for sale. These cards are ideal for all kinds of occasions, not just the winter holidays, when you want to tuck something unique and definitely not off-the-rack into that gift bag or simply want to express yourself in unique and meaningful ways.

New artwork is being submitted every day for this exhibition, and a current list of participating artists include both established and emerging artists such as Anna Blinn Cole, Laura Bredin Hussey, Jane Carr, Louis D’Amico, Janice DeMarino, Lisbeth Firmin, Robin Halpern, Paul Matocikala Lee, Amy Metnick, Alix Travis, and Dave Turan. An up-to-date list of participating artists can be viewed on the Roxbury Arts Group website at www.roxburyartsgroup.org.

If you are an artist who wants to offer greeting cards and postcards for sale during the exhibition period, please contact Executive Director, Jenny Rosenzweig, to discuss sale arrangements. We wish you were here!
