Event Description

mailart call from stripygoose...

I’ve just started a bird mailart 365 project, making bird mailart every day for a year. Every day a bird will appear on my iuoma page here and also here There will be a mass migration into the post next September.

Please send me your bird mailart anytime before August 31st 2014 and I’d be delighted to add it to the blog and to exhibit it sometime, somewhere. No returns. 

Thank you in eager anticipation.

That's it! It's kind of a temporary piece really, you must enjoy that pin for yourself... like a medal for all your birdie creations. I still think of it as an exhibition and it's great! Folk will probably spend longer looking at all those birdies than if they were walking around the Tate!

Hi Gina... like this you mean? Oh yes - swallow the swallow! Yikes, I was a bit slow there... anyhow, I love it. Thank you. And less of an exhibition really - more a wall in a cafe!

An exhibition - that's exciting! It's funny because I hadn't seen your call for birds until after I'd sent it!

If you dangle the swallow above the mans mouth..... D'ya get it!

Hope many more birds flock your way!

It's great isn't it? Everyone is so generous here. And now I've found a venue for the exhibition - a sort of eco-cafe. More details and photos soon (-ish).

Wow - birdmailart tally = 57! That's wonderful, thank you!

More smashing maialrt has arrived for the bird call.

First off, from Eva in Morocco. Lots of goodies, plus a wonderful ' Mail a goose' postcard. I wish I'd thought of that. Thanks Eva.

Then shortly afterwards, this joyful card. Thebird is actually a pin/brooch, which is perched on a piece of string, like a bird on a wire. Great combination. Thank you and for your nice message, Gina.

And to day, Katerina is wishing me a Happy Summer. And to you! I duly note your message... While on internet, dont forget to send out mail art. Yes indeed! Thanks Katerina.

Blaine has sent two fantastic bird poems. The first one with a cute sense of persepctive...

...and here's the second slightly unseasonal, but beautiful poem. Thank you so much!
