Postcards from All Over 2000 Results

Curated by joel Sampson

A mail-in postcard exhibition
by the Irving (Texas) Art Association

March 5 - 30, 2000 at the IAA Center for the Arts


It does not seem like two years has past since the first PostcardsFrom All Over exhibit, which has now become a biennial event. Likethe first exhibit, the quality of work entered in the Y2K show wasoutstanding! We hung over 180 cards this year.

I kept the categories, like the show, somewhat loose. The graphics division consists of photography, digital and other prints. Thecollage and mixed media were especially strong. I sorted the mostlysingle media works into subject matter: landscape, portrait, floral,abstract and other which was still life and other subject matter. Itwas easier to compare landscapes with other landscapes rather thanwith an abstract. Plus we have a couple of divisions for kids, underand over 9th grade.

Typically I ended up with a dozen works in each category I reallyliked. And often liked the top six equally well. If you did not makethe "cut," I probably really liked your art too!

Thanks for entering the show. And thanks for the support of theIrving Art Association, Barbara Fields, IAA President, and the Cityof Irving, Parks and Recreation.
