The St. Louis Artists' Guild invites artists to participate in our first national “Greetings From” postcard-size on-site exhibition.

The “Greetings From” exhibition will feature original creations in an all media by established and aspiring artists from around the country. This is a unique occasion where there is opportunity for ALL interested artists to exhibit.

All works must be 4”x 6” (post card size) and mailed through the postal service. 100 lb cover (270 gsm) is a popular thickness for postcards. Many home printers cannot support stock this thick, so 80 lb cover (215 gsm) should meet the postal regulation for postcard thickness. For more details, view the guidelines on the USPS website here.
