IUOMA exhibitions 2013


IUOMA exhibitions 2013

In 2013 the IUOMA was 25 years old. There was no central exhibition, but all members were encourages to make their own (large, medium, small) exhibition, and to ask members to send them IUOMA stuff for that exhibition. This groups was a central point for starting those projects. Each project will be owned by a member. Have a look if you like the challenge.

Once a project was decided it will have its own discussion and projectnumber. The owner of the project can start his/her own page in this group (add a page) to document the steps of the project.

Now the IUOMA is heading to 30 years in 2018........

Hello All. I am new to the site, as of a couple of days ago, but have been putting together a Mail Art exhibition at the gallery where I am a director/curator, for a few months now.

There are still a few weeks left to submit. If you are interested, please check out the information below, and send away! - Thanks.

Following the exhibition, a visual catalogue/book will be created, which will include information and photos from the exhibition "POSTAL".

Once the book is complete, it will be available for purchase online. All artists will be notified when the book becomes available, and if any further information is needed, we will contact you by email.
