Art & Seal: The Envelope Show

Art & Seal: The Envelope Show

The concept is simple, artists create one of a kind art on envelopes of various shapes, sizes, colors and contained in each envelope will be a mystery inserted by the artist.

The deadline for submissions via email is January 3, 2019



  • Create art work on the face of a flat envelope of any size, shape, or color. (Artwork must be all ages appropriate, nothing overtly sexual or violent.)


  • Artists can submit up to 5 pieces. Email a photo / scan (1000 dpi wide) of each piece to The envelope your art is on must not exceed 12″ x 15″. Include with each submission the artist name, title, dimensions and rough price range. (Submissions will be voted on by the staff and based on the guidelines listed here.)
  • The deadline for submissions via email is January 3, 2019  (DO NOT send the physical piece yet.)
  • Once your submission is approved, we will email you a gallery agreement with more details to sign and return.


  • Conceal something in the envelope. (It can be another work of art, words of wisdom or some other wonderous thing. Nothing perishable, messy, or innapropriate please.)
  • Close, but do not seal the contents in the envelope as our staff needs to screen each one first before sealing. Once we have inspected the art, we will seal the envelopes for you.
  • Ship the art / envelope unframed in a safe package to the following address. (Sandwiched between two pieces of larger cardboard within another envelope.)

Nucleus (envelope show)
210 East Main St.
Alhambra CA 91801
