ION Art gallery to hold exhibition featuring 4,000 postcard-sized works by community artists
Artworks by 470 local and foreign artists will be displayed at the Pameran Poskad exhibition from Dec 3 to 11.
ION Art Gallery will hold the eighth edition of community art exhibition Pameran Poskad featuring 4,000 postcard-sized works by 470 local and foreign artists.
The exhibition is organised and co-curated by former member of the Singapore National Gallery’s Art Acquisition Committee Jimmy Chua and director of T.H.E.O.’s Arts Professionals Seah-Tzi Yan.
Pameran Poskad (meaning postcard exhibition in Malay) will celebrate creativity and inclusivity in the arts scene by displaying mini artworks from artists from all walks of life.
The exhibition also partners Tasek Jurong ArtLab, and is supported by the Tote Board’s Arts Fund and the National Art Council.
Artists who will have their works showcased include students from Christ Church Secondary School, toy artist Jessica Emmet and White Canvas Studio.
Pameran Poskad will also showcase a curation of 50 smaller artworks named Small Works.
Themed How It Will Be, the artworks encourage creatives to accept the current circumstances of creating art while empowering them to shape things from new perspectives.
Visitors who want to make their own art can also sign up for workshops conducted as part of Pameran Poskad.
For instance, there is the Plasticine Painting Workshop where participants can learn to create their own postcard-sized artwork on plasticine through mixing and matching colours.
The workshop, hosted by Cheryl Lam, will take place on Dec 3 and 6 from 4.30pm to 6pm and costs $25 to register.
Rainbow Artisan will also conduct Eco-Casting Workshops for participants aged six and above.
Participants can choose to create either key-chain charms ($10 per pax) or phone holders ($25 per pax) with Jesmonite, a waterproof material that is lighter but as strong as concrete.
The Eco-Casting Workshops will be held in hourly sessions on Dec 4 from 10am to 6pm.
Pameran Poskad runs from Dec 3 to 11 at level four of the ION Art Gallery, which opens 10am to 10pm daily. Admission to the exhibition is free.
