Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
1977
My Website (without http://):
http://cmehrlbennett.wordpress.com/
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I'm enjoy sharing my art and having an artist/poet support network which is more important to my creativity then institutional attention, which is often more stifling then supportive. These days, mail-art is more the NORM for me then the creation of art objects or canvas paintings. I've been working more in 2-D with graphics software anyway, and that is well suited to creating small book editions and mailart multiples. My spouse, John M. Bennett, and I were able to meet Clemente Padin & other Latin American visual poets/ experimental writers in 2008 in Montevideo Uruguay, and to enjoy Paris France with Nicolas Carras and Alan Revich for a week. In 2009 we presented visual poetry in Mexico City at the X Bieniel, and again, ten years later, in 2019 we performed in a gallery space in Mexico City. We were invited back to Montevideo, UR to perform at Mundial Poetico and then to present visual poetry in a gallery and presented videos for Video Bardo event in Buenos Aires, AR. In 2011, flux fests enabled us to perform fluxus scores in Chicago (between 2011-2018 seven Chicago Fluxfests!) and in Staten Island & NYC; in Toronto Ontario 2019. During most of that time we also partook in annual Roanoke VA MAF and AfterMAF events, plus the occasional Minneapolis gigs via Musicmaster and MN Book Arts events. I've became more involved with artist stamps when I helped Ginny Lloyd to research/edit articles for a book about 30 women artistamp creators who've contributed to her artistamp archive. It is listed at http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/ginnylloyd. Around the same time (end of Sept.'12) Fantagraphics released The Last Vispo (1998-2009) for which I'm one of four contributing editors. Both those editing opportunities came about because of a desire to stay active and involved with the network.

Here are your instructions, should you choose to complete this mission:

  2. Post the photo to me via jpeg using FB messenger or IUOMA message or email to cmehrlbennett@gmail.com or

R.I.P. Steven Donald Dalachinsky

Posted on September 17, 2019 at 3:30am 3 Comments

I received this collaged postcard from Steve Dalachinsky this month, but didn't get around to a reply before he passed away yesterday. He said he didn't have a lot of mail art correspondents anymore, but we knew Steve personally because of shared poetry circles, where Steve was a shining star. Our son crossed paths with Steve at Sun Ra Arkestra earlier on the same day he experienced a stroke. Later that day he performed his poetry at "A Book About Death" 10th Anniversary Exhibit at Islip Art…

Mehrl. I would love to exchange art with you. I admire your work and johns also. I am not too good with social media but love the variely of art I find at iuoma. I've become less prompt and reliable in replying to MA. Most of my friends here are cool with that.  Shanah Tova.
