The Linden Postcard Show is the largest Australian open entry competition showing work across all media Linden Centre for Contemporary Arts Director, Giacomina Pradolin, says, "The Postcard Show gives artists the chance to show and sell their work in a major contemporary art space. Visitors love the show as it literally has something for everyone."
The first Linden Postcard Show was held in 1991 as part of the St Kilda Festival. Twenty years later it is still continuing and attracting artists from all over the country. All works are for sale and the small format means the works are reasonably priced. There are works by established artists as well as emerging artists in a frenzy of colour and movement.
