Adults and children from across Redbridge and neighbouring boroughs are invited to take part in the tenth Art Trail Wanstead by sending in their art on a postcard. The theme of this year's Trail is ‘Time’.

The exhibition's organiser, Eugene Coyle, said: “After the success of last year’s show, I'm running the postcard art exhibition again, celebrating the trail’s anniversary. There was such a fantastic mix of entries last year (around 150 cards) and we managed to sell many for charity.”

Eugene aims to make art accessible to individuals of all ages, both to participate and to enjoy viewing.

Entries are now open until Saturday, August 31. Postcards received before the deadline will be displayed at the high street premises of the Trail's sponsor, The Stow Brothers estate agent, or at Wanstead Library. If necessary, further venues will be used. All forms of postcard-sized art are welcome, from paintings to poems, photos, textiles and collage.

Art Trail founder Donna Mizzi said: “Interpret the theme as widely as you wish. Some people may want to create postcard clocks, while others could be inspired by anything from Dr Who, to nature, to futuristic visions."

Submissions can be left in the Art Trail letterbox at The Stow Brothers or posted to 117a High Street, Wanstead, E11 2RL. You can even create your work on holiday and post your art from abroad.

The free-to-attend Art Trail Wanstead will run from Saturday, September 7, to Sunday, September 22, but postcard art will be on display for longer. Professional and amateur artists will be showing their work in at lest 70 venues this year, but participating in the postcard exhibitions is absolutely free.
