The Twitter Art Exhibit is back for 2018, and they have recently put out their call for artists to register. The exhibition is non-curated and showcases postcard artwork from artists all around the world, which will be sold in aid of charity. The project was originally set up 8 years ago by artist David Sandum, to raise money to buy children’s books for a library in Moss, Norway. Since then the project has expanded and has been hosted in several countries around the world, to raise money for local charities.
I took part for the first time last year, and the exhibition was in the UK, the charity being Molly Olly’s Wishes, who support children and their families through terminal or life threatening illness. My card is still for sale, and can be found here if you would like to support the charity. Here’s my photo of my postcard before I sent it off, it’s all coloured in watercolour with gold ink used for the Flower of Life centre illustration.
I’ll be taking part again this year, haven’t decided on my design yet, but it may well be some form of Celtic knot, seeing as that’s what I’ve been working on for the past few months! Everyone is encouraged to register and take part, so if it’s something you think you would like to be involved in, have a read of the call for artists page, and join in! The exhibition this year will be held in Australia, and all monies raised will go to Pegasus Riding for the Disabled. I’ll be back with an update on my postcard!
