Join BACCA’s 2023 Holiday Greeting Card Art Exchange!
 

How it works:

First, email info@babylonarts.org if you're interested in participating, so that we know how many cards to expect to receive, and then do the following:


1. Create, paint, or draw one original handmade holiday card (standard letter size is best) using any 2D medium and mail it to the BACCA office:

47 West Main St., Suite 4
Babylon, NY 1170
2

2. BACCA will match you with another surprise participant and forward your card to them. 
3. You will receive one handmade card in exchange.
Please be sure to include your return address on the envelope, regardless of whether or not you wish to remain anonymous. 


• If you would like to remain anonymous, please specify this preference in your email response.
• Cards must be postmarked by December 6th, 2023

• You may choose to include a message to the recipient (who will be a fellow artist), or leave the card blank. 

Mail it to us and we’ll do the rest!
