Tiny Gallery kiosks are going up around town! The first is at Art & Soul of Sebastopol. The second will be on 4th Street, Downtown Santa Rosa, as a component of the Chamber of Commerce’s “Open and Out” event. Street closures and foot traffic! Yes, please!
So, how can you tell if a piece of art is available at a kiosk or through our mail-swap? Look for identifying graphics on the picture of the work! Here are three samples:
Art in the kiosk at 4th street has “Open & Out Downtown Santa Rosa” pasted on its picture.
Art in the kiosk at 755 Petaluma Avenue in Sebastopol has “Art & Soul” pasted on its picture.
And finally, postcard art is indicated by a cancellation sticker placed on top of the image.
Our country relies on the hard work and dedication of our Postal Service. Their charter is astounding: to collect and deliver mail to every address in the United States, at the same price for every customer. It’s a bold idea that has withstood the test of time, and tested mail carriers’ mettle, for generations. It’s inspired poems, songs, novels, and art.
With Tiny Galleries’ postcard swap, we’re doing our little bit to support the USPS. Many of our artists are going above and beyond making mere postcards, creating complex works requiring far more than a postcard stamp to deliver. You are all generous, remarkable souls and the world is a better place with you in it.
On our homepages you will see images from our Instagram (tinygalleries). Make a postcard sized piece of art, send it to us, and we’ll send you back someone else’s art. You even get to tell us which one you want!

We’re in the final days of our donor matched funding at Ioby. We’re very close to being able to build twice as many Tiny Gallery Art Exchanges! The work of finding excellent homes for each kiosk continues. We’re currently negotiating a location in Alameda, which would be simply delightful to increase that city’s visual artists… visibility.
Here’s some excellent news: ioby.org picked up our Tiny Galleries as an “Artists Lead” project! Every dollar (up to $1000 per donor) given to the project gets matched until we reach $15,000 in matching. How great is that? Your art patron dollars have never worked harder.
