Description In June 2010 the G8 Summit is being hosted in Muskoka, Ontario Canada. In response, Muskoka Arts & Crafts, a non-profits visual arts organization is calling on artists worldwide to submit small pieces of work based on issues of concern to a show called 'Postcards to the G8'.

While the leaders of the world will be attending the G8 with their own agendas in hand, the idea behind this show is to ask the People, 'what issues are important to you?'

The show will run from June 5th to 30th and will be based at the Chapel Gallery in Bracebridge, though it is hoped that if enough entries are received installations will be located throughout the Muskoka region during the week of the G8.

There are no entry fees for 'Postcards', and no limit to the number of pieces an artist may submit. Submissions should be made on 4X6" pieces of paper and may be done in any medium.
