FOR NO IDEA'S MINI MAIL ART GROUP

Posted on March 28, 2020 at 4:03pm 0 Comments

Hi!

Please look at the Arty Slide International Group which I started in 2012. It was as Mini as I could think of then. We held 2 good Slide Art exhibitions in France. I still have the Arty Slides (somewhere!) that IUOMA colleagues contributed. Bianca has died, alas. I have gained a Stidio and moved to bigger bits of art.

Here is the text that started it all:…

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO YOUR NATIONAL MAIL SYSTEM?

Posted on March 19, 2020 at 5:03pm 28 Comments

I wonder what is happening to your national mail system?

In my small village in the South of France, there is sporadic delivery of mail. The local Post Office is closed, and people are directed to one about 10 miles away -- but there is a 'lockdown' on almost all travel, and it's far from clear that a trip to this Post Office to send off some Mail Art would be accepted by the authorities (and, if not, would result in a €135/$150 fine).

The only shop that sells stamps in the…

Neil Innes, RIP. Doo-Dah and Dada

Posted on January 2, 2020 at 6:35pm 1 Comment

Neil Innes died just before Christmas.

He wrote the music and many of the lyrics for the Monty Python TV series and films.

He also played in a number of groups, one of which -- a group of art school students -- was the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band (which I remember seeing in a three-quarters empty Civi Theatre in Darlington, England, in the 1960's).

The Band was originally called the Bonzo Dog Dada Band, but no one got the reference to Dada, so it was renamed the Bonzo Dog…

BORING POSTCARDS -- FROM ALAN BRIGNALL (for others see the Boring Postcards Group)

1. Heathland Caravan Park, Lowestoft, England -- a remarkably composed Boring Postcard, lots of fields, a bit of sea, but all you can see (if you are in a plane or a helicopter) of the caravans are some white dots

2. Staircase at Hotel de l'Avenir, Heyst-sur-Mer, France -- this hotel obviously had a future as it boast its electric lighting…

Valentine,

Samantha was an IUOMA member who died April, 20th. Read her profile story

http://iuoma-network.ning.com/profile/SamanthaPrice?xg_source=profiles_memberList

A number of members corresponded with her. Her personal story and mail art creativity are inspiring.

What's also odd about the Amsterdam church postcard is that I bought it when I was visiting!
