"Wish you were here" -Contains Art

Looking forward to the opening of 'Contains Art' on Saturday 6th July. The launch or perhaps, anchoring of several artists' studios made from shipping containers on the east quay on Watchet harbour. Artists include Angela Wood, Melanie Deegan, Sue Lowe, Jenny Barron, Alison Jacobs, Tria Raffield  and Victoria Ward.
To mark the opening Contains Art are inviting the public to send them a postcard. Please see my own response below -as you can see it has nothing to do with boats, the sea or any such-like and it doesn't have to be. The more unusual the better. 
"Contains Art provides flexible, affordable space for artists, designers and makers to develop and showcase their work and to connect with the creative and wider communities of Western Somerset. "

We must all welcome these iron ladies into Somerset, and what better
way to celebrate their convalescence than a decent prescription of art!

So sharpen those pencils, fluff those bristles and send us an art
post card, draw it, sketch it, scratch it, snatch it, burn it and wax it,
just go create and post it to Contains Art, The Harbour, Watchet, ready
for the opening exhibition in May. But don't just send one, send eight,
send in a whole darn crate, but make them fabulous for all to see for
the launch exhibition will be made of these.
Just follow these four steps...    

Prepare a postcard (A6 148mm x 105mm
in size)

Be creative with the postcard - paint draw, 
sketch etc.            

Post card to:
Contains Art, The Harbour,
Watchet, TA23 0AH

Attend exhibition and studios
Saturday 6th July
where a selection of cards will be
displayed for the launch exhibition
