Hi, for IUOMA members, we are the owners of an art gallery in Marseille, France, and organizing a Mail Art exhibit ''not for sale'' from June 3 to 30, 2014. The theme is: "Mermaids in the port, queens of the sea..." We invite you to participate and send an artist's letter. Free technique. On a postcard or any other object of your choice. Illustration, address and stamp on the same page. Deadline for hanging: May 10, 2014. Send a work in mail format as original as possible. Send to: JC SARPI - LE LAB 3 rue Bussy l'indien 13006 Marseille France .We will answer each mail by sending Mail Art. Looking forward to presenting your works. Thank you for giving the information to all the persons who may participate to the project. Look at http://lelab13006.blogspot.fr
Earthling, this is the last but certainly not the least welcome message to IUOMA you receive. I’m a celestial mail artist living in a heavenly corner of the faraway universe called Republik van Patland. When you joined IUOMA on July the 4th I was unable to welcome you on board. At the time I was in a celestial journey far beyond the Milky Way. Now, back to planet Earth, I´d love to be the other end when you decide it’s the right time to start trading snail mail art. If this is the case at the time your envelope should read as follows:
The Celestial Scribe
The Celestial Republik van Patland
Caixa Postal 24827
II look forward to see a piece of yours in our terrene mailbox. I will do my homework after receiving yours. This is a celestial promise. I’m Patricio, Celestial Scribe & Republik van Patland official envelope provider.
It's a great bunch of folks and I hope that you enjoy exchanging Mail Art with us. I'm your Mentor, and if I can help to ease you into IUOMA in any way, then please don't hesitate to ask and I'll try to explain what's going on and how IUOMA works.
If you haven't already done so, I suggest you take a look at the 'New to IOUMA' page (4th from the left at the top of the IUOMA home page) where you'll find a 10-point Introductory Guide that should give you an insight as to what is going on.
Would you like to exchange some Mail Art with me? If so, send me something to me: 2422 Floyd Ave, Richmond, VA 23220, USA, and I PROMISE to send you something back.
BUT if you want me, or anyone else in IUOMA, to send you any snail mail Mail Art back, you're going to have to provide us with your postal address. If people have to ask you for it, then it gets to be a bit of an unecessary hassle for one and all.
Hoping you enjoy your IUOMA days.
Here is a Health & Safety Warning: IUOMA and Mail Art can be seriously addictive.
Hello! I have just joined this list as well! I would love to exchange mail art with you. I used to live in Maryland and the DC Metro area and actually miss it... However, Asheville is beautiful although I miss the sea...
