Open Call: The Linden Postcard Show 2012

The Linden Postcard Show is an open entry award exhibition featuring small format contemporary work. The show was first held in 1991 and it has since become a prominent event in the Australian cultural calendar attracting thousands of visitors each year.

The Linden Postcard Show derives its name from the tradition of selecting six works to be reproduced and sold as Linden Postcards.

The Postcard Show gives artists the chance to show and sell their work in a popular exhibition in a major contemporary art space – that visitors love!
