The Philpott Lake Project


The Philpott Lake Project

I came across almost 50 unused postcards of an unfortunate looking lake in Virginia at a junk shop yesterday and I think they have potential.

I was hoping that I could send them out to any interested artist, they could alter them as they see fit, send them back to me, and I could publish the responses in any format the group would like.  Maybe I could scan them and create a Tumblr page?

No restrictions on the medium or content, first 47 responses, and I will publish as we go.

I am open to any and all suggestions.

I am also a new member, so please correct and forgive me if I don't understand quite how things work yet.  Participants will be sent a piece of art from me as well.

Diaba--many thanks for the exhibit's announcement postcard--loved the drawings from the Catalonian toy museum.

Diana--It must have been time consuming to frame all of the mail art--I even recognize my entry with its envelope. Thanks again for bringing mail art to your corner of the world. The rest of the exhibit looks stunning.

Hi, everyone!  I just uploaded a few photos of the installation to Google Drive, Philpott Lake Show, and I will address invitations this evening.

Hi, No invite here, either, so I suspect a glitch there.

Look forward to seeing all the postcards together, well done Diana for making this happen. I didn't get an invite, but it's no biggie.

Carmela, it was lots of fun and well attended.  I will post a few photos tomorrow and hopefully take photos of the installation this week.  I am sorry that you didn't get an invitation, I have a list of everyone's addresses to the school and I was told they would mail them out almost a month ago (I was missing one or two, but not yours).  Has anyone else received an invitation?  I will pick up more and mail them out myself if they never went out.  Apologies!

Congratulations! Hope the opening night was fun! I would love to have an invitation when you do send them out.
