Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I love to create things - but even more than that I like to share the things I make. I love the inspiration that comes from receiving art from others, and nothing beats the experience of holding actual art (as opposed to just looking at electronic images,say). I like having 'treats' to look forward to - and receiving mail art is a big treat for me. I get huge joy from imagining how my art is travelling, and how it will be received when it arrives. It makes me smile.

  • Sara Marie Niday

    Hi, I'm replying to your comment nearly three years later. Sorry for the delay. I decided I couldn't prioritize mail art during college, but now I would like to get into it.

    Thanks for watching my videos! I have made them private because if I ever get back into vlogging I would want it to be of a better quality. I might go for podcasting instead as I find cameras to be tricky.

    I'll be adding your address to my list so I can send you something when I get around to making some things. If you would like my address, you could PM me (if that is a thing - I haven't navigated the site much yet).

    All the best!

  • Rho Wilson

  • Thomas Pratt

    Hi, I`m off the mail art circuit since I lost everything I owned in the Santa Rosa, California fires. 25 years of art gone. I`m struggling to get back to creating again but it`s hard. Sorry I lost your mail art. Be well, Thomas

    Good to hear from you again. The Cascadia Artpost address: 3116 Moore Street SE, Olympia, WA 98501-3517. Please send some mail art and we will reciprocate in the new year. New developments include the expansion and anticipated opening of the post office in the Cascadia Diorama, the advent of Cascadia Coffee Clutch, and the "Ticket!

    Thank you Petrolpetal for reaching out. I'm new and sort of going down the IUOMA rabbit hole. It's fun, but I need to take all this inspiration and start cutting, pasting, drawing, painting and sending myself!  I look forward to receiving your mail! This will be my first official mail from a Union member! Looking forward to getting something created for you over the weekend.  Amy K

    Hello, Petrolpetal. I already sent you my collage in the mail earlier. Did you get this collage?

    Some countries have now restricted the reception of mail from abroad. This is a serious problem for Mail art.
