I stumbled across mail art in the Whitechapel Gallery Imprint 93 exhibition in 2016, but at the time, was focusing on their zine-making. So your exhibition's going to broaden my horizons, I'm sure.

Thanks Jennifer. Hope you can make it to the exhibition. I remember when I first saw the Ti Parks exhibition of mail art he organised at the Greenwich Theatre Gallery back in 1980 - it was quite a revelation to me. So hopefully this exhibition will inspire others to take it up.

I can't get to the PV but will definitely go and see the exhibition! I'm just getting into mail-art, so this couldn't have come at a better time for me.

Will do.   I hate PV's also but will grit my teeth and hope  it isn't too embarrassing!   I do the odd mail art project but not as many as I used to do back in the 80's and 90's. Please feel free to send snail mail.  I am more likely to respond to stuff in the UK as the postage is cheaper!

Yes please.  Put me on the mailing list for any fliers and suchlike.  I hate private views.

I often think of sending stuff to you but I remember you said no more mail art so I have held off.  My recent involvement with the NHS has put me all out of sync. Such is life.  Cheers

No catalogue but there is a flyer and a catalogue, stamp sheet and badge.  Happy to send you if you don't make the PV.  Sorry to hear you have health issues. Hope you are better soon.  M.

. . . not the opening bash but I will try and get over for the show if I am well enough.  Hope it all goes well.  Will there be any sort of catalogue?
