Artists both local and from around the world are invited to submit original art in the form of a postcard to Create Columbia’s third Postcard Art Invitational.

The exhibit will be held Aug. 26 to Sept. 2 at the National Watch and Clock Museum, 514 Poplar St., Columbia.

All displayed entries will available to be bid upon via a silent auction throughout the exhibition period. The closing reception and winning bids will be announced 2-4 p.m. on Sept. 2.

Artists may submit one or more postcard-sized artworks using any medium that can be mailed through the U.S. Postal Service (but not placed in an envelope). This year’s theme is “It’s About Time.”

Paintings, collages, illustrations, photographs, or mixed media in the form and general size of a postcard will be accepted and displayed.

Artists need not include a return address on their postcard art but are encouraged to add a website address for visitors to view more of the artist’s work.

Income derived from winning bids will go toward continuing operating costs of Create Columbia, a 501(c)3 organization. No postcard art will be returned and may be included in future fundraising efforts by Create Columbia.

Entry deadline for submissions is Aug. 24. Postcard art should be mailed to CC Postcard Art 2023, P.O. Box 328, Columbia, PA 17512.
