2014 Postcard Salon Exhibition & Sale

Create small works of art. Own original art! The Muskegon Museum of Art's popular Postcard Salon provides the chance to do both.

Join the fun by (A.) creating your own postcard art for the show and (B.) attending the Salon sale on February 13. All postcards will be on sale for $30 apiece, so show them, sell them, and buy them.

Postcard art will be on display January 30 through February 13 (one week longer than in previous years). The Postcard Salon Sale event will be held Thursday, February 13. Light refreshments will be served at the Salon event, beginning at 5:30 pm. The sale begins at 7:00 pm, with all artworks priced at $30. Buyers select art on a first-come basis and must pay for any work they remove from the wall by the end of the evening. Muskegon Museum of Art members will be given a 5-minute head start to purchase. Works may not be reserved and sales will not be made prior to start of sale. The sale will continue through Sunday, February 16.

Artists of all ages and skill levels are invited to submit original 4 x 6 inch works of art to display and sell during this non-juried event. The artwork can be created in the artist's choice of media and can enter up to five postcards. The artwork must arrive at the MMA by January 26.
