CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Postcard Fundraiser

Having a Wonderful Time!  
 Announcing the
Fourth Annual Hera Gallery 
Artists’ Postcard Fundraiser
Past Submissions for Inspiration!

Dear Members and Friends,

This summer, Hera will hold its fourth annual postcard fundraiser! We are seeking artists’ postcards created as original works of art to sell at $15 each for benefit of the gallery. Postcards will be displayed in the gallery from June 11-14, 2013. An opening reception featuring music, food, and fun will be held on Saturday June 14, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Following the event, postcards will be permanently on sale in the gallery.

Please create postcards for this event and recruit other artists to aid in this effort. You may contribute individual postcards or editions of postcards. They can be stamped and sent through the mail, put in an envelope, or delivered to the gallery. Postcards will be accepted on a rolling basis. The deadline for inclusion in the show is Friday June 6. All cards become the property of Hera Gallery. Artists are asked to sign and date the back side of the postcard and to include any information they would like to make available: a message, contact information, artists statement, or websites.  The piece need not be a functional postcard. Anything goes as long as it is 4” X 6”. Have fun!

More information is available on the website: www.heragallery.org. Also see the Facebook event page. Contact Barbara Pagh (bpagh@uri.edu) or Abigael McGuire (info@heragallery.org) with questions. Mail cards to Hera Gallery, Box 336, Wakefield, RI 02880. Thanks!

Visiting Artist at URI!

Mithu Sen will be at URI next Tuesday!

Mithu Sen is an Indian artist known for her fantastical and provocative multi-media (painting, drawing, performance...) works that earned her India’s inaugural Skoda Prize in 2010. Sen studied at Santiniketan before continuing her art studies at the Glasgow School of Art. Sen’s work consists of motifs that playfully subvert commonly held beliefs about femininity and sexuality. Sen’s intuitive, free-spirited practice invites viewers into her own personal psyche and streams of consciousness, allowing them to discover new identities including their own.
Sen exhibits internationally. Her recent exhibitions/performances include the Tate Modern, England and Kiran Nadar Museum of Art and the Devi Art Foundation, New Delhi, India and the Zachęta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw, Poland.

Public Presentation
Date April 8th
