Dear IUOMAers . . . Thanks for all your contributions for the mailart exhibit Passing the Flame at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. Over 100 items had responses created for them, in the workshops I did there, but I'm back in Roberts Creek now, so no more workshops . . . I am hoping that the mailart not responded to will get shown when my exhibit goes to Pratt Institute Feb. 1 - April 4, but so far I don't know if there will be any possibility for me to do workshops/get people to respond to your mailart works . .  .so best to hold off on sending any more to the gallery. An issue of the Banana Rag is in the works to document the exhibits and activities, but don't expect to get it out before Xmas at the rate it's going now. Hope for mid January!  all for now,

Anna
