SIGNS AND SYMBOLS- MAIL ART EXHIBITION IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA!

Last weekend I attended my first Mail Art exhibition! It was held in Mount Barker, a very charming and supportive arts region in the Adelaide Hills.

Such a cute gallery, it used to be the original General Store from the 1800s.

OK, let's get to the AAAART!

The asemic guru, Mr Tim Gaze, was the most hospitable curator of this show, and in his opening speech…

Oh sweet cheeses, DK!

This mail art had me waltzing all the back from the letterbox today!

What a surprise to find a cane basket with a cheesy little Swiss box amongst all the other mail!

I wound up the key on the base and the sweet tunes of "Oh my papa" serenaded me (and the nearby) cows all the way back to the house. I was giggling all the way!! (and that's a long walk!)…

A year or so later, the bag was given a name, Little Red Bag, and she's spent the last year travelling the world visiting mail artists! Now she's back!…

Rebecca the book-making demon!!

I absolutely love this professional boekie from Rebecca Guyver! And I love her method, which she calls "automatic collage".

She made 11 of them in an obsessive bout. I'd like to know if she worked on them all at the same time or one after…
