National Invitational Postcard Exhibit

50 Artists Representing 50 States Opens At City Hall Bridge Gallery

The public is invited to view the National Invitational Postcard Exhibit, which opens on April 24, at the Bridge Gallery in Las Vegas City Hall, located at 400 Stewart Ave.

This exhibit was organized by inviting artists from across the country to create a postcard image about the state or city in which they live. Artists were also asked to recommend one or two artists in states other then their own.

The artists have a diverse approach to creating their postcard image both in medium and concept. Some have made images of their natural surroundings, while others looked below the surface to convey certain social and local issues.
