“Postcards for Laura”

The women artists’ homage to their professional colleague, Laura Luelmo, by sending postcards

The association BNM ( White, Black and Magenta) launched the action “Postales para Laura” (Postcards for Laura), a collective tribute to her fellow artist, illustrator and teacher. The murder of Laura Luelmo moved the whole country and especially awoke the sensibility of some groups: artists, women, education workers, students…

The idea of this association, spread on social networks, consisted of a call to participation to carry out, paint or draw postcards with illustrations and texts dedicated to Laura Luelmo and and send them by mail to a postal address. The postcards, of unique format (10 x 18 cm), for which different techniques could be used: watercolor, portraits, texts, collages… had to carry images and texts dedicated to the young artist and teacher.

The postcards collected were exhibited in Madrid (6 to 27 March 2019) in Salamanca (11-12-2019 to 19-01-2020), in memory of Laura
