The not exactly postcards postcard show

It's the holiday season, which means it's the time for capatalism in all it's glory. A time when you can really say you have to shop. I love getting involved in the explosion of art shows and sales at this time too. And I'm doing about three or four, so, let us begin: I've done this show for the last three years, and once in LA, it's always a good time. A total bizarre bazaar of art in all it's forms. (I don't think I've ever seen a postcard there, actually.) If you live in SF, or are travelling thru, stop on by...

The LAB is pleased to present Post-Postcard 11, the eleventh annual exhibition and sale. For this open-invitational exhibition, artists are encouraged to submit small format multiples--whether that be a series of hand-made paintings or a stack of production run postcards. Post-Postcard challenges artists to stretch the parameters of media and conceptual strategies by doing what they do best--subverting and manipulating a theme to their own ends. From November 30th through December 8th, hundreds of small format editions will be on view as the gallery is transformed into a bazaar-like bargain-hunter's paradise, just in time for holiday shopping. Art lovers can explore original works and discover hidden gems at affordable prices while supporting emerging artists and a great alternative art space.

Fixed-price work will be available for $1 to $30 (cash, checks, VISA or MasterCard accepted). Become a member of The LAB and get a chance to preview the sale in our gallery Friday, November 30, from 5-6 PM.
