AKA Anna Banana Appreciation Band (ABAB)

The theme is Bananas & Anna Banana.  Many of our members are « bananas » themselves, others are »fruity », a few are « nutty », and one is completely « ape ».
If you are none of these, don’t worry we can help you with specially designed projects and exams for your progress to the banana status you deserve.
We will also explore the many works of Anna Banana as we give appreciation for involvement in Mail Art & "Art".
PS I you are « crackers » or « loony », this group may not be for you.
Also: see link and fill in the form and return it to Anna Banana!

See! The original Anna Banana costumes in the window of Kunstverein, a tiny, cosy, pleasant art gallery in the city center of Amsterdam (Hazenstraat 28). The exhibition of Anna Banana's works started this weekend, and runs until 13 January 2018. I happened to visit it already and it is a joy to see the Banana Rags, ATC's, artistamps, zines and other mail(ed) items by Anna. 

See for more information, opening days/hours and so, the website of Kunstverein.
If you plan to visit the  gallery, please let me know. I'd like to go and see the tiny-but-great exhibit again, and maybe we can meet up.
