CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
Winter Wunderkammer Holiday Art Sale

(formerly the Post-Postcard Show)


Have your work seen!  Spread Holiday Cheer!  Help Support The Lab!  

The Lab is pleased to announce Winter Wunderkammer and is inviting you to participate!  This event marks our 15th annual Community Exhibition and Holiday Fundraiser (formerly The Post-Postcard Show).

Artists, crafters, makers, writers, designers, and all community members are invited to contribute a set of small format multiples -- whether that be a series of hand-made objects, jewelry, zines, production run prints, or anything in-between.  

On December 9 and 10, we'll be opening our gallery as a cabinet of curiosities, inviting viewers and buyers to experience the richness of the local arts community. Guest DJs, warm spiced wine, and yummy holiday treats by Delicatrocities will make this years showing and shopping experience festive and fun.  This is an excellent opportunity for artists to have their work seen in the community and to help support The Lab as an essential arts organization in the San Francisco Bay Area.  We believe that collecting engaging, quality, and beautiful works should be accessible to everyone.  


ELIGIBILITY:
Open to everyone. All media and processes welcome. Handmade, production run, whatever! The one criteria is that all work must fit in the provided box.  

BOX DIMENSIONS:
5"H x 6"W x 11"D (exterior dimensions).

PRICING:
One of a kind work may be priced between $1 - $50. Multiples may be priced between $1 - $25. Whole numbers only (i.e. $10, not $9.99). ALL items in the box must have the same price.
