1. Create an artwork
Participating artists will be provided with either one or two standardised small format canvases free of charge. This means you can choose to create an artwork, using the medium of your choice on a single canvas, or make a diptych over the two canvases (side by side, or above & below). What you paint, draw, collage etc is completely up to you – there are no theme requirements. Collect your canvas/es at Artspace Mackay from 10am – 4pm, Friday 13 July.

2. Donate your finished artwork
The ‘Articulate: Postcard Exhibition & Competition’ is a fundraising initiative of Artspace Mackay Foundation. To participate, you agree to donate your completed artwork to the Foundation. Once donated, the funds raised by selling or auctioning your miniature canvas will assist in funding exhibition development, education programs, events and resources at Artspace Mackay. To begin the donation/entry process, you must complete the donation/entry form to be received by 4pm Tuesday 17 July. Complete your artwork, attach the label provided to the back of the canvas, wrap it for protection, then finalise the donation by delivering it to Artspace Mackay from the 19 to 21 September.
