Postcards at Portico
POSTCARDWALL is excited to announce its second pop-up exhibition of 2015, plus the launch event of the Year of the Postcard. 365 postcards, one for every day of the year, will line the entrance, corridor and stairs to welcome visitors to The Portico Gallery, Knights Hall, 23a Knights Hill, West Norwood SE27 0HS until end of March.
Tues-Thurs from 25th Feb to Tues 31st Mar 2015*
Private View: Fri 6th Mar from 6-9pm
Sophie Hill, an Art Gallery project manager and founder and writer of POSTCARDWALL has been collecting exhibition postcards for ten years and her reasons for including the cards in her collection accompany each one.
The reasons are as fascinating as the cards themselves. Visitors will be able to pause for a moment of contemplation and inspiration at one or many postcards. Sophie grew up just down the road from The Portico Gallery. This exhibition marks an important journey for the postcards, symbolising the collection coming home.
Private view: The private view of Postcards at Portico on Friday March 6th, 6 – 9pm will celebrate the beginning of the Year of the Postcard. With all 365 postcards on exhibition for the first time, this event will mark the exciting year to come for POSTCARDWALL and its collection. On the 65th postcard of the postcard-a-day campaign, please join us to raise a glass just up the road from where it all began.
* Exhibition open Tues to Thurs 10am – 4pm, during events or by appointment. Contact us to ensure the gallery is manned at the time you want to visit – 0208 761 7612.
