Ask Anything

There are a lot of basic questions on Mail Art that are often asked and answered. This group might be the first place to look for answers. I will do my best to answer, but hope that other members can help out as well.

got this envelope approx 14 Aug 21 and am not sure who it came from... MY decryption of the return addresses has me responding to Chuck Welch but I see it could also be Nick Johnson. Can anyone out there help me?

I only send to mail artists who have a postal address on their page. I don’t send electronic mail to request an address. it’s the way I’ve been doing it for years.

Occasionaly an artist's page doesn't have their address. You can send them a message and ask for it.

Comment by Heide Monster on March 9, 2021 at 11:39pm

Peggy Huff---Each artist's address is on thier page.  Click on their icon or name and scroll down halfway down the page is usually the address.

In order to find an address to send out mail art, do I need to request it from addressee?  I cannot find addresses on the menu.  thanks

Susan, I don’t have him on any of my lists.

I received some nice Mail Art from Russell Manning in Dallas, but it didn't have any personal message with it. I looked him up in the IUOMA artists' profiles and he doesn't seem to be there. I'm wondering how he got my name and address. Does anyone know him?
