Postcards from the Edge

May 3 - May 31

From March 15 through July 30, 2019, the Western Arts Agencies of North Carolina (WAANC) will coordinate a unique traveling art display.  Eight arts councils in the region will present Postcards from the Edge, a traveling exhibit of postcard-sized artwork created and donated by area artists to raise awareness and funds in support of the mission of the councils involved.

The traveling Postcards exhibit will feature approximately eighty postcard-sized paintings framed in elegant black frames.  The art will be exhibited in each arts council gallery for at least one month before traveling to the next venue.  The artwork is nominally priced with sales revenue being shared by the presenting arts councils and the Western Arts Agencies.
