I'd never really thought about postcard art until I got a prospectus from Studio Montclair two years ago about an upcoming fundraiser show. Every member of the organization was encouraged to contribute three postcard size pieces of art. Any medium, any style—"If we can hang it, you can send it."
To me, this was a fun, bite-size challenge! Creating these miniatures felt fresh and freeing. I felt as if I were back in elementary school art class, doing crafts. Studio Montclair would be charging $35 per postcard piece. A wonderful way, I realized, for art lovers to start or add to an art collection without breaking the bank.
Above are the nine postcards I've created for the past three shows. I will definitely be participating in this show in years to come, and I am seriously considering creating postcard art to offer to my collectors.
I'm Evan Stuart Marshall, an abstract painter living and working in Roseland, NJ. I love working art into my daily life.
