Bathtub Postcard Submissions

Lloyd Godman 2003

Opening Reception of the Bathtub Art Show 8/28/03 The tub sat center stage, The bathtub "gin" was ready (and gone in 15 minutes), and people surged in and out of The Know during this Last Thursday August opening to view local art, international postcards, and films of the bathtub. In the Summer of 2003, before the museum opened, a call for hand made postcards was sent out through word of mouth, mail-art websites, posters & flyers, and an arts newsletter. Over 50 postcards arrived from around the world to be shown in the Bathtub Art Show in Portland Oregon (August 28 - September 22, 2003). The postcards were displayed in a clear shower curtain overhanging a vintage 1900 bathtub. To see the orginal installation, look at the Bathtub Art Show snapshots. Finally the postcards are online for those of you who could not attend the art show. You may view the postcards in a couple of ways. I've organized them under several mini exhibit categories that you will find below. You may skip to a specific category or start with "The Bathtub" and click the link to the next gallery at the bottom of each page. Or in the left hand column I have listed the artists and where the postcard came from. Clicking on the artist will bring you to the gallery page they are listed in. I've tried my best to list everyone's piece as accurately as possible. The mediums listed are my best educated guess. If you find anything incorrect please let me know. Enjoy the Exhibit! Carye Bye

Note: All postcards sent are donations to the Bathtub Art Museum and will not be returned. If you want credit for your donation please put your name and contact information on the back of the postcard.(emails or P.O. Boxes are best since the backside of the postcards may be on view). Postcards will become part of the permanent collection and may be in public art shows and also shown in on-line exhibits.
