The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Get creative and join in Cupola gallery's Secret Postcard Show.

Last year the gallery launched a fundraising campaign – CPR, Cupola Preserve & Rescue – to raise the tens of thousands of pounds needed for structural repairs as it celebrates its 30th year in Hillsborough.

The gallery is inviting artists and non-artists to create postcard-sized works in any media, and donate them to the gallery. All works donated will then be shown in a post-lockdown exhibition and will go on sale, with the name of the artists kept secret until the piece has sold. Each piece will be £15 – helping the gallery raise essential funds, and allowing people to buy artwork for their homes for a relatively accessible price!

Deadline for entries:
20 August

29 August–3 October
