Congrats Rebecca! The exhibition looks so rich, wish I could have been there. Love your arrangement in the windows and the frames... everything.

Have received quite a few more memories.  Will update here soon.  In the meantime, I have had day 1 of the pop up exhibition in Suffolk at Old House.  The weather was pretty terrible so not as many people came as hoped for (about 50) and I told them all about IUOMA and talked them through lots of the work! I wasn't able to hang it all but it was all there and people were taking things out and holding them and opening them up, even if they weren't hanging. I showed as many genres of mail art as I could find and spoke of how the mail I receive can directly result in some inspiration that makes it way over to other art.  This was pretty easy because I also had some of my 'fusepo' - trashquilts and trash landscapes in a room nearby so could show a Diane Keys trashquilt and then explain how that morphed into my fusepo. People seemed genuinely interested too!

I am back there tomorrow and there is music so perhaps even more people will know about 25 years of IUOMA and mail art.

I had materials ready and I think six people made mail art who had never made it before.

I received 18 postcards from inmates at the male prison in Barcelona for the upcoming pop-up exhibition in Suffolk.  To see them all visit:
