Postcards from OCC - Tullamore/Chandler Twinning Postcard Project

Our next exhibitor hopes to collect as many originally created postcards as possible to exhibit in Áras an Chontae to celebrate Tullamores twinning with Chandler. The theme is Commonality.


20th July at 11:40 am to 31st July 2017 at 4:00 pm

International Chandler AZ / Tullamore Postcard Project. 2017.

‘Bringing Communities together’

This project is to encourage creative minded people in Chandler,AZ and Tullamore to come together and exhibit their postcard creations & ideas for a visual treat. This exhibition will open on Friday 11th of August at Áras an Chontae offices beautiful atrium space. Our call is to anyone & everyone, groups, young & old, artists & non-artists. After this exhibition is finished at the Áras an Chontae in Tullamore, the postcards will travel to Chandler in Arizona to be exhibited there. This we hope may be the start of an annual art exchange that will bring both communities together in a fun and exciting way thus building friendships.
