CURIOUS THINGS Private View

Posted on October 5, 2019 at 4:07pm 5 Comments

PV went well on Thursday night. Quite a few people - more than expected considering it was a Thursday and very wet.  Some folks came as far afield as London, Fife and Cardiff. One old Southend Art School chum I hadn't seen for over 50 years turned up, so that was nice.  Lots to catch up with, although a PV is not the best place to do that as you are mingling all the time and stressed about the speeches and the poem I had to read for National Poetry Day ( written especially by Roger "Radio"…

CURIOUS THINGS Install

Yes, the install is going well. Posters and large decal printed - the window in library looks good. As does the cabinets although some are rather tall and not really suited to small flat works.

Not sure why they have a blog post here?  I guess you can write what you want. Any gibberish will do. Duffle coats through the mail?  Yes, I have never tried  I must confess. Wearing them seemed much preferable. I have worn many over the years. A green one, a beige one with wooden toggles, and the black one I have now which is a bit worse for wear - fraying at the cuffs. I need to look out for a new one. Maybe treat myself this Autumn.

Hi Michael, If you want to do a swop with me/UK add and pass let me have your address.  i've just added something to an add & pass from Laura so not really sure who to send it on to... 

ps I'm not on facebook/instagram/twitter, I'm a proper snail mail bunny

Thank you Michael, I'm sorry for my delayed reply, I don't get on the computer too much.  Yes I'm a mail artist in the UK, based in London.  I was wondering if you might have a UK mail artists directory.  I'm mainly interested in mail art swops, or contributing to various themed calls - I prefer that over adding and passing.
