The first time I went to a San Francisco Correspondence Co-Op meeting was the group’s first anniversary party — back in 2012.  Here we are nine years later, and the co-op is now 10 years old.  We missed having our party in 2020 and finally had out first in-person gathering las month, safely, outdoors in a quiet, park.Every time we meet, one of us does an artist stamp to be shared with co-op members.  Many keep their stamps in special passports.   For our 10th anniversary we did something…See More

Mystery Mail

Sometimes with mail art you receive mystery mail — it is all part of the process.  This week I received an altered postcard from the U.K. as well as a collaged postcard with my address nearly hidden (the back is blank).  The British one does not have a postmark, the other one was sent from Grafton, Vermont in February — so it made it to San Francisco fairly quickly. See More

Dia de Muertos Mail Art 2020 at MK Gallery

October 28, 2020 at 12pm to November 7, 2020 at 4pm
Call for Art: The Denison Arts Council and the MK Gallery calls for mail art that incorporates imagery and themes (sugar skulls, skeletons imitating the living, ofrendas, papel picados) associated with Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead). All work should be created on heavy weight postcard, blank paper, or index cards measuring 3”X5” (7.6 cm X 12.7cm) or 4”X 6” (10.16 cm X 15.24 cm). Other surfaces are alright as long as they are of one of the measurements mentioned previously and it can be…See More

Found a few very old aerogrammes that I used to send from Istanbul and from Greece,"back-in-the-days".

So a few on their way to you, perhaps they were the earliest form of my "mail art", as there were no greeting cards to be bought back then, so I had to decorate aerogrammes!:

Thanks for the memories :-)
