"Richard, I guess the international postal service is back up to speed again, because I received this Mail Art from you yesterday! Thank you, and thank you for clarifying the difference between Mail Art and art by mail. I think I will be doing both.…"
It's a great way to do something creative and playful, to be connected to other people doing the same thing, and hopefully to work together with them.
I discovered Mail Art about 13 years ago at a show at the San Francisco Art Institute. I immediately said, "I want to do that!" so I formed a small group that stayed in action for a few years. Since then I've done what I call Random Acts of Mail Art amid my other artistic endeavors (e.g., artist's books, mixed media work).But I want a more regular engagement in this wonderful medium, so here I am.
