Ha ha, I just got the slides from Angie! I will add and then who do I send them onto?

i have scanned 4 old slides directly,

increased the size and tried to sharpen,

the work is very simple colour pencil to begin.

the original film material is scratched and kinda faded.

this was the regular way to record and store yr images

from the 50s to late 80s.

i m sure there is a professional way to transfer to digital nowadays

sliders, we have to keep the art slides group going,

i put old art slides in my mailings often.

we have to create new meanings and new uses for this format.

there must be a way to transfer slides to digital and we can

share them at this site.

so anybody  got slides? send them to me.

see my page for address.

Fantastic colors, visual Mom! 

Now that adds inspiration for this group to WAKE UP! :-)

...Angie, my "starter arty slides" never got to Rebecca? hahaha!

Well, I might just have to make a new batch...

I still have lots of empty frames, but can't really work that tiny anymore.

Welcome Visual Mom! I hope that you enjoy the Group....BUT it is effectively a Group in deep, very deep hibernation. It is 7 months since anyone posted anything here about Arty Slides.

Like a number of the Groups I have founded, there is an initial burst of activity, a possible Mail Art exhibition (in this case 2, both organised by me), and then things gradually trail off and come to a stop.

That's what's happened here. If your interest in the Group can re-awaken the slumbering beast, then that will be good.

If not, well I think we'll need to conclude that the Group is, effectively, no more.
