Written and Curated by Sophie Hill.
Nature and Gardens has become the focus as weather improves, and postcard gardens looks at a selection of the postcards that take gardens as their inspiration.

About

postcardwall began from a collection of postcards, started in order to remember art from exhibitions and galleries across the world. As the collection mounted, the postcards became a display of both contemporary and historical art in a wonderful wallpaper of visual memory and in 2009 Sophie began a blog to remember each one.

To mark having reached 365 postcards, Sophie Hill has declared 2015 The Year of The Postcard and is exhibiting the postcards and text in a number of galleries.
