I sent out the call below a few weeks ago, and the response has been very, very disappointing. So disappointing in fact that I’m faced with a non-Exhibition.
So, let me make things easier, and ask you to send me an Envelope. Any Envelope
Forget ‘Summer in Sigean’ – just send me an envelope on the theme of Summer.
They need not be square ones – any shape or size will do.
But please write ‘Sigean’ on the front of the envelope.
THANKYOU, and apologies if you get this more than once, but I’m getting desperate.
SUMMER IN SIGEAN/L’ETE A SIGEAN
Sigean is a small and beautiful village located in the South of France mid-way between Narbonne and Perpignan, and close to the Corbières and Pyrenees. (see www.sigean.fr)
There is a thriving Mail Art community in the village, and les Envelop-Pistes de Sigean will be holding an Exhibition of Envelopes in the local Médiathèque in August 2012.
The theme of the Envelope Exhibition is “Summer in Sigean”/ “L’Etè à Sigean”
You are invited to contribute an Envelope to this Exhibition.
Envelopes must be 16.5 x 16.5 cms /6.5 x 6.5 inches. (Sorry, but that is the standard format for the Exhibition, and only Envelopes of this size will be accepted).
The front of each Envelope should include a painting, drawing, collage, etc on the theme of “Summer in Sigean”/”L’Etè à Sigean”.
On the back of the Envelope please include your name, contact details and any other information that you think might be relevant.
Only the front of the Envelopes will be displayed in the Médiathèque (so there is no need to put anything inside your Envelope).
Please send your Envelopes to:
37 rue du Commerce,
F- 11130 SIGEAN,
before Monday 30 July, 2012.
There will be no jury, no fees, and no return of the Envelopes. A blog will be set up on which the received Envelopes can be seen.
