The postcard exhibition returns triumphantly, the same but entirely different.
Yes, following the enthusiastic response to The Postcard - a Voyage of Discovery shown at the Lit & Phil and at South Shields Museum, this is a return visit with an entirely new cast of postcards. Every postcard tells its own story, every frame will have its own theme. Compare, contrast and stand in awe at the endless visual choices made in the name of pictorial postal communication. There will be more local views, of course, but also monkeys and fish and touches of red and royal majesty and... well, the range is wide though the size is small. A chance to enjoy a fresh display of unexpected imagery, old and new, that just requires a stamp.
The Pleasures of the Postcard is at the Lit & Phil from Monday 3rd to Saturday 22nd August. FREE entry, opening hours: Monday - Friday 10.00 am - 5.00 pm (Tuesday 'til 8.00 pm), Saturday 10.00am - 1.00 pm.
There will also be a talk by the curator on Wednesday August 5th; more details on the Talks and Lectures page.
For more information, please call the Library (0191) 232 0192, e-mail or call in at the Lit & Phil, 23 Westgate Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 1SE (map).
As the result of circumstances beyond our control, the series of Wednesday lectures and Sunday Study Days at Northumbria University Gallery is being cancelled at very short notice. As a result, "An Entertainment in Four Acts" advertised for August 2nd will not now take place.
Gail-Nina says that "While the unexpected cancellation of Northumbria University Gallery's entire programme of public lectures and study-days has caused considerabe annoyance (not least to myself), it is worth mentioning that I do deliver talks elsewhere, albeit on a more sporadic basis and on a wider range of topics."
