International Chandler AZ / Tullamore Postcard Project. 2017.

‘Bringing Communities together’

This project is to encourage creative minded people in Chandler,AZ and Tullamore to come together and exhibit their postcard creations & ideas for a visual treat. This exhibition will open on Friday 11th of August at Áras an Chontae office’s beautiful atrium space. Our call is to anyone & everyone in Tullamore to design a postcard. It is open to everyone, groups, young & old, artists & non-artists. After this exhibition is finished at the Áras an Chontae in Tullamore, the postcards will travel to Chandler in Arizona to be exhibited there. This we hope may be the start of an annual art exchange that will bring both communities together in a fun and exciting way thus building friendships.

“Alone we can do so little together we can do so much”. Helen Keller.


The challenge is to design a postcard with this theme in mind. What might our two communities have in common!! Go wild with your designs! Draw, paint, print, illustrate, collage, verse, words, poetry, mixed medium, fibre, pastel, beads, polymer clay, photograph etc. etc.

All postcards should be 4” x 6” (inches) approx. Bought or handmade.

Participants can put their name, contact details, age group bracket ie. ( 0-10 ), ( 10-20), (20-30 ) and so on, Email address or remain anonymous, on the back of their postcard creation.

All postcard art pieces will be sold for 2/3 euros to help fund further art initiatives between Chandler, AZ & Tullamore.
