Pacific Northwest Mail Artists


Pacific Northwest Mail Artists

This group is for mail artists in the northwest corner of the U.S. and British Columbia.  Exchange mail art with your region's artists and maybe meet in person.  We are planning quarterly meetings in the Seattle area where we will make mail art together and share what we are working on, as well as some favorite pieces we have received.  We'll also share tips and techniques.  Put a face to the name on the envelope!

Hello PNW mail artists --

Anyone interested in meeting in person again?  We've met before at the Northgate Library, and we could possible do that or explore other options.

Hello! I just joined this group and would love to exchange with fellow Pacific Northwest people. I live in Portland. I have just released a new series of art stamps, with a few sheets still available. Let me know if you'd like to trade.

I sure hope so! I would love to. I am experiencing ebb and flow with mailart. Hopefully I can send you all some mail soon.

Hello, everybody. Just wanted to say a quick hello. I have been on IUOMA for about 4 months now. I have enjoyed corresponding with you during this time. I look forward to meeting in person some day, too!

Sounds good to me! Staying at home actually INSPIRED me to start making mail art in the first place! I needed a project to keep me busy, and it occurred to me to ask about mail art organizations. It's also actually a logical direction for my creative process and values, and I plan to continue, even after things open up again.

Hello PNW mail artists!  Since we will not be able to meet in early May as we were thinking at our last meeting, what do you think of each person posting something about what they are working on?  How has staying at home impacted your mail art creation?

I'm delighted to find out about this group, and look forward to the next meeting, whenever it may occur. Keep the art flame alive! - Melanie
