Make an Environmental Postcard

I just joined the Northern California Women’s Caucus for Art and they are promoting a postcard show called “Sustaining our Environment”. I love some of the postcards already submitted that they are showing on the blog, WCA ArtWaves international. Check out instructions below to send in your postcard too which will benefit the UN.


This was done by friend Judy Johnson-Williams. A 3-D shaker box card, it is made from found/recycled foam core, tape, plexi, flowers, BART ticket and a butterfly.


A timely woven card from Donna Catanzaro of Windham, NH. She wrote,
“Made from just 3 of the hundreds of NH Primary Campaign junk mail pieces I received…and never read.”


By another coastsider I have not met yet – Alexis K. Manheim of Moss Beach, CA. It is made of used coffee filters, old tea bags and discarded tea bag strings.

Here are the details to enter. Sounds like fun. Do it!
