Postcards of India explored at Toronto post office exhibit

A new exhibit entitled “Postcards: India” by artist Linda Ward Selbie will be hosted by Toronto’s First Post Office from April 27 to May 31 as part of the Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival.

India still celebrates national events with commemorative stamps and uses paper technology for communication. Selbie’s exhibit is rooted in feminist commentary and reflects our ties to the greater world, old and new, ancestors and traditions.

Born in Toronto in 1949, Selbie is a media studies graduate from Ryerson University. Over the course of a long professional career in the arts, she has exhibited at many regional Ontario galleries and continues to participate in global mail art projects. The artist established the Magic Image gallery in Pickering in 1981 and has also worked as curator of the Thomas Bouckley Photographic Collection at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa.
