Call for mail art 

About BODIES! 

Howdy all!   

My name is Aca and I’m a painting graduate student in Illinois.  The pandemic (like most artists) has really affected both how I make and think about work. In an effort to continue to create connections and broaden my perspectives I’m coordinating an informal mail art exchange on the theme of bodies (however you relate to that word). 

Send me something by mail and I will send you something in return!  I plan to photograph and show the works I receive here, on Instagram @acacarle and hopefully in the real world someday, though plans are uncertain for now.  There is no definite deadline, especially given the uncertainty of when spaces will open again.  My hope is to show the work at my school (Illinois State) and area galleries in the fall. 

My address: 


307 W Mulberry St. apt.3 

Bloomington, IL 61701 

Thank you and stay safe!

Hi Aca,
Thank you for your call, I appreciate it.

Many of us are having trouble with the postal system during the pandemic. My mail service is infrequent, and I am unable to go to the post office.

Would you consider email submissions?

You can send them to

Thanks for asking.
