Event Description

An Exhibition of the 365 Envelopes I mailed to myself as part of an auto-mailing Mail Art project that lasted from 01/09/2010 to 31/08/2011. Every day for a year I posted to myself a different, brightly coloured, collaged Envelope. The 365 Envelopes -- arranged in a 70 meter long 'chain' -- will be exhibited here frol 7-30 June, 2012.

Details and images of them can also be seen on my website www.val-herman-art.eu under 'Envelope Art', and then under 'Envelope A Day'.

If Katerina won't come to Vizma, then Vizma will have to come to Katerina!!!

Hi! Late May/early June sounds good. BUT I must warn you that if my mother's condition deteriorates rapidly I will, nay must, go back to England. I have been on 'standby' for this for the last - years (and there was a false alarm 14 months ago that sent me zooming back to England). I'm sure that you'll understand that.

Now timing wise:

i) the long weekend of the 26th/27th/28th May is a holiday -- Pentecost.

and ii) I have to be in Sigean on 18 , 19, 23, 30 May (and I think 2 June) for my first Arty Slides Exhibition.

and iii) I have to be in Montpellier on 7 June to set up my Envelope exhibition.

The rest of that period seems to be OK.

Knowing your luck, you had better start off for the South of France TODAY -- then you have about 3-4 months to actually get here! If, of course, there are any flights.

'Don't tempt the Fates, Val!' I hear you say.

OK, I won't.

Regards, Val

Oh...I see that there are 5 exhibits! Good...I don't have to plan to come in the heat of August! (although that is when Vizma will be in Europe)...hmmmm, I prefer to travel to Sigean in late May, early June? Shall we start plans for that??? :-)

Of course I'll be at home. Of course I'll have a floor for you. With a bit of luck you might be offered (choose one of the following): i) a cat basket, ii) a sofa, ii) a bed, iv) a tent. Of course I'll have a bottle of champagne chilled and waiting for you.

Why are you going to Tobago (besides singing for the President)?

If you are a songstress, will you serenade me on the terrace, please? Val

Comment by vizma bruns on January 13, 2012 at 9:40am

Val, it may just be fit into my itinerary to swing by. After singing for the President of Tobago in i'll need a brief stop in France to gargle some Champagne. Will you be home in August and have a floor ready for me? 

Comment by Valentine Mark Herman on January 13, 2012 at 9:25am

Ah well, the non-dancing boys missed you while I tried to keep the dancing girls on their toes. It was difficult to manage in the bar without you, but somehow i just did. Val

Comment by vizma bruns on January 13, 2012 at 8:43am

You know I need 2 days notice to get to meetings Val because I'm a day ahead here and I've slept through that appointment already. Sorry I missed it. Please add to the minutes that I will require dancing boys, not girls please.

Comment by Valentine Mark Herman on January 12, 2012 at 1:27pm

Is that a threat or a promise, Vizma?

You need to tell me when you are coming so that I can arrange the necessary civic receptions, massed marching bands, extended opening hours at the bar, dancing girls, performing seals, visit from the President of the Republic, etc. Are you free tomorrow afternoon between 14.47 and 14.49?

5 summer exhibitions? Goodonya Val. I might just pop by sometime!!

Comment by Valentine Mark Herman on January 11, 2012 at 10:31am

Hi Mim! Why don't you come back to France from 9 May to 25 August (includive) and you can see all FIVE of my summer exhibitions. My IUOMA actiivities are bound to slow down when all this is happening, I fear.

Looking forward to The Paris Meeting.

Bestest, Val
