Sustaining Our Environment Postcard Exhibit

Earlier this month I submitted my postcards for the Women’s Art Caucus (WCA) Sustaining Our Environment Postcard exhibit.  All the postcards submitted for this exhibit are now on their way to Dallas, TX for the WCA national convention where they will be displayed and auctioned.

The WCA has an international committee which is an NGO to the United Nations and supports the UN’s Millenium Goals.  All proceeds from the Sustaining Our Environment Postcard auction will be donated to the UN in support of the UN’s Millenium Goals.

Any postcard not auctioned will be kept for future exhibits.

You can see my postcards here and over 200 postcards here.

Hope to Atone (What the Snow Melt Revealed) Postcard

For my second postcard for the WCA exhibit, I planned to collect some items found during a walk in the neighborhood and was going to title the postcard “What the Snow Melt Revealed.”

I collected bits of trash, including a crumpled newspaper page, candy wrappers, a straw and a crushed can.  It wasn’t until I started to wrap the newspaper around the cardboard base that I noticed the words in the headline “…hope to atone.”

It was a serendipitous moment.  The newspaper revealed to me the true name of this postcard.  To me it says we, as humans, are hoping to atone for what we’ve done to our earth.
